    TICKETS!

    Neuschwanstein Castle

    We arrived at the car park early so we could get tickets easily to see Neuschwanstein Castle.

    I had previously read vt tips about buying online, but as we were travelling and not knowing where and when we were going to be here, and not having computer access, we decided to come early to buy the tickets at the Ticket box.

    Well, it didn't work out like that! In June, we were here at 9.30am, there wasn't even a queue at the ticket office, something I didn't expect at any time of the year. Before heading to a window to buy our tickets, I noticed an electronic board telling me what time the next tour in English was available. I couldn't believe it, the time was 11.30am!

    Tickets are only available at Ticket center Hohenschwangau or online.
    Tickets with a specific visiting time can be reserved one day in advance.

    You must buy your ticket here, if you wish to visit the inside of the Castle, not at the Castle itself

    This wasn't really a disappointment, as what I wanted to see, was the outside of this Castle, just as I had seen it on biscuit tins all those years ago!

    OPEN.....
    April to September: 8 am-5 pm / October to March: 9 am-3 pm
    CLOSED..... 1 January and 24 / 25 / 31 December.

    ADMISSION IN 2013
    Adults 12 EURO
    Children/ Pupils under 18 years of age FREE
    Students, Senior citizens over 65 years of age,
    disabled visitors when showing valid identification 11 EURO

    Drastic weather changes

    by heitzenrater Written Jan 8, 2008
    notice the hail
    4 more images

    Within the span of 45 minutes it the weather changed from sunny to hail. This is due to the fact that the Alps can alter the patterns of the winds, and chill the air as it passes over the mountains. Also the valley can contain warm air, while colder air lingers above. Notice the differences in the sky in the various pictures. All taken within a 45 minute span.

    IF YOU LIKE MY POST PLEASE LEAVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS.

    Horse Drawn Carraiges: Dont sit up front!

    by chellediva Written Jul 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The day we visited the castle was another gorgeous day. I would have walked up to the castle, but we decided a carraige ride would be so much sweeter. How often do you get a horse drawn coach ride to a castle? How Cinderella! Yeah, notsomuch. The horses had the most rancid smelling gas, and the exertion it took to lug a carraigeful of lazy tourists up a mountain...well it was really forced out, almost constantly. I recommend the carraige, but please take my advice and sit as far back as you can...fresher air back there.

    NO photo! NO video! NO dogs!

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated Feb 11, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To my great disappointment photographing and video shooting are forbidden in internal rooms of the castle. However at an exit from the castle there is a shop where big variety of printed and video materials are available.

    The decision of administration to prohibit video shooting from my point of view is disputable. However it was necessary to obey.

    Visits are only possible with a guided tour.
    Dogs are not allowed inside the Castle. With this interdiction nobody argues!

    Neuschwanstein Castle

    You are not allowed to take any photos inside the Neuschwanstein Castle so I don't have any inside photos to share but the rooms are totally amazing and all look fantastic. Our guide told us that because Ludwig died unexpectadly in 1886 many of the rooms were left unfinished...only about 16 out of the 65 rooms were completed...

    One room was made into a cave...it was my favourite...hehe...you'll have to go there for yourself to see it! It's very weird...

    Schlo�� Neuschwanstein

    Entrance tickets can only be bought at the ticket center in the village of Hohenschwangau below the castle. You must therefore buy your ticket before you start the approximately 30-minute walk to the castle. Tickets can be booked in advance for an additional charge. The time can only be changed or the ticket cancelled up to two hours before the start of the tour (also by phone).

  • Treacherous Path

    Watch your step!!

    If you're not a somewhat skilled hiker or such, I would recommend you don't attempt the footpath at the far end of the Marienbruk in winter, it is dangerous under foot. But if you are, the views are lovely.

    A big part of the facade is under renovation according to the Schlossverwaltung Neuschwanstein website until end of 2012, but more likely sometime in 2013.

    Long walk

    1)Make sure you buy your ticket before walking up to the castle. If you don't, you'll have to go all the way back down.
    2)It is quite a hike to the castle. Wear comfortable shoes.
