The tours begin at 14:00 and 15:00
Depending on the number of visitors, another tour may start at 14:30. The castle tours last approx. 1 hour.

Even though many areas of the castle are not accessible due to construction reasons, the most representative rooms, such as the Grey Hall, the Theater, the Castle Chapel, the Emperor's Hall as well as the Knight's Hall can be shown.
In addition, there is a lot of interesting information about the history and architecture of the castle from our castle guides.
Due to construction work, some partial areas may be temporarily inaccessible.

The Castle is an architectural monument and in some parts a construction site. The tour through the building is therefore not barrier-free and some stairs have to be mastered.

Special tours

We also offer interested groups guided tours outside of the regular hours mentioned above and are also happy to additionally open our café for your special occasion.
Even if you want to experience a guided tour on Saturday without waiting and other guests, you can order a special tour.
Many things are possible, we will be happy to advise you. You are welcome to send your inquiry to the listed contact details or directly to  fuehrungen@schlossblankenburg.de.
