Die Führungen beginnen am Samstag um 14:00 Uhr und 14:30 Uhr.
Je nach Besucheraufkommen/verfügbaren Schlossführern kann um 15:00 Uhr eine weitere Führung starten. Die Schlossführungen dauern ca. 1 Stunde. In der Woche wird eine Führung am Mittwoch mit Startzeit 14:30 Uhr angeboten.

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.

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 (English-language tour, themed tour), we will be happy to advise you. You can send your enquiry to the contact details on the right or directly to



The courtyard and some sections are freely accessible.
