Accessibility Important information for your visit to the castle

For reasons of conservation, a large part of the castle is not accessible to disabled visitors. We are very sorry for the restrictions this imposes and are constantly striving to ensure that our disabled visitors are provided with the best possible experience.



For visitors with restricted mobility, there is a shuttle bus from the car park up to the castle entrance. The minibuses are also equipped for wheelchair users. The tour of the Romanesque palas (great hall) covers three floors and includes spiral staircases and a lot of steps. There is no lift.

In the courtyard, a tactile model of the castle complex with explanations in braille will help visitors with visual impairments to get their bearings. Selected objects can be touched during the tours.

All of our guided tours can be booked for groups containing people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Please arrange for a sign-language interpreter to lead your tour.

We would be happy to put together individual programmes for people with learning difficulties or mental disabilities.

Disabled toilets are located at the car park, at the first castle courtyard and in the Hotel auf der Wartburg.

If you or your group have any special requirements, please contact us in advance of your visit. We will do everything we can to make any visit to Wartburg Castle a special one.
