Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • There's a long-ish uphill hike to the castle entrance, so wear comfortable shoes and bring a lightweight stroller or Baby Bjorn if you have infants or toddlers.
  • Make sure you buy your tickets at the kiosk in Hohenschwangau before you set off for the castle. You will have to hike back down if you don't!
  • No photography is allowed inside, so be sure to snap those iconic pics from afar.
