Preserving all the features of Neuschwanstein Castle intact is an ongoing task. Therefore, restoration work and restoration investigations are currently taking place.
Nevertheless all rooms are accessible for visitors.
On the west side of the Throne Hall there is currently a scaffolding that is needed for restoration investigations; it is expected to be dismantled in the first week of April.
Half of the Singers' Hall is currently scaffolded. Part of the scaffolding is equipped with a semi-transparent, printed screen. This should give visitors a glimpse of the ongoing restoration work and at the same time give an impression of the wall surfaces as they look without scaffolding.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Please note that during the winter months the Marienbrücke, the bridge over the Pollät gorge, may have to be closed in bad weather. To find out whether the bridge and the path to it are open, please contact the Ticket Center in Hohenschwangau: www.hohenschwangau.de. The way to the castle and the guided tours are not affected.
In our experience, most visitors come to Neuschwanstein between July and September, so that during this time especially, considerable waiting times must be expected. It is also possible that all the available entrance tickets will already have been sold by lunchtime. We therefore recommend that you choose another time to visit Neuschwanstein Castle.

Please note that entrance tickets for a particular day may be sold out. We would therefore ask you to reserve your tickets well in advance.
