Opening hours:
Every day we offer castle tours between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Because it is not only the castle itself, the restoration and maintenance costs of which are mainly covered by ticket sales, the museum shop and the castle tavern, but also its owner, the Deutsche Burgenvereinigung eV, finances its diverse activities from this by far the most important source for the association , the work of the DBV, to which 3,000 members belong throughout Germany and which runs the European Castle Institute, is at risk because of the still significantly reduced income. We would be happy if as many visitors as possible would visit our beautiful castle in order to cover the costs with the entrance fees.
If the castle is allowed to reopen regularly, the following rule applies to the summer season:
Castle tours take place between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. (last tour starts at 4 p.m.), duration: approx. 50 minutes.
