Guided tours


Picture: Dressing Room, detail

Neuschwanstein Castle can only be visited within a guided tour.

A description of the 14-room tour can be found here.

We offer guided tours in German and English by our own personnel. Visitors who do not speak one of these languages can make use of our audio guide tours, which are available in Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, Czech, Slovenian, Russian, Polish, Chinese (Mandarin), Portuguese, Hungarian, Greek, Dutch, Korean, Thai, Arabic and Hebrew.

Both kinds of tours last approximately 30 minutes.

Your admission ticket is valid for a guided tour of the castle at a specific time. We expressly point out that the guided tours start punctually; in the event of late arrival, participation in the guided tour is no longer possible. Please make your way to the castle in good time and plan additional time on site for possible security checks.

Rucksacks, prams, child carriers, and similar bulky objects may not be taken into the palace. Please leave these items in your car or bus.
