Welcome to Neuschwanstein Castle

How to buy tickets to Neuschwanstein Castle?

Neuschwanstein Castle is the most visited castle in Europe with more than 1.5 million visitors every year.

Tours last about 30 minutes. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to stay as long as you want in the castle as there can be up to 8,000 visitors per day on sunny days.

There are several ways to buy your tickets:

  • You can buy your tickets on the same day at the Hohenschwangau ticket office. However, tickets are only sold for the same day, you cannot buy a ticket for the next day for example. Please note that availability is not guaranteed. On some days tickets are sold out very quickly and you may not get a spot.

The ticket offices are open from April 1st to October 15th from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm and from October 16th to March 31st from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

Please note that it is not possible to buy a ticket for the next day.

  • Buy your ticket online with a guided tour to be able to choose the day on which you want to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. This is the easiest way to get your ticket and avoid waiting in line for several hours. If you want to be sure to visit the castle on a specific day, this is the best option.



When you buy your ticket (on the same day or online), you will be given a specific time for the tour. Make sure to respect the schedule or you will not be able to visit the castle.

You cannot change the schedule or stay longer in the castle because of the high number of visitors.

What you should know before the visit: you cannot enter the castle with a stroller or a baby carrier. You must leave them at the automatic lockers (for a fee) or directly in your car in the parking lot. The same applies to large backpacks.

It’s not possible to take photos or videos inside the castle. We assure you that this will not prevent you from having an amazing time inside!
