Information + FAQ on the annual season tickets, the 14-days-tickets and the combination ticket "Königsschlösser"


Due to the high number of visitors, we recommend purchasing tickets for Neuschwanstein Castle in good time from the official online ticket shop (booking fee 2.50 euros).

Important note for families to book online: Children need a free ticket to enter the castle (booking fee 2.50 euros). Please take this into account when booking online.

Alternatively, there is also the option of purchasing tickets at the box office in the Ticket Centre in Hohenschwangau on the day of your visit, depending on availability and only for the current day. These tickets are often sold out very early ("first come first serve" principle), which is why we recommend that you arrive at the Ticket Centre as early as possible (for opening at 8 am or a little earlier). If the tickets are already sold out, it will unfortunately not be possible to visit the castle on that day. Reservations are generally not possible.
