Although many areas of the castle are not accessible for structural reasons, the most representative rooms, such as the Grey Hall, the theatre, the castle chapel, the Emperor's Hall and the Knights' Hall can be shown. In addition, our castle guides will provide a lot of interesting information about the history and architecture of the castle. Due to construction work, some parts 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. Animals are not allowed on the tour.
