Do I need a ticket for my child?

Children and young people under the age of 18 do not pay admission to the buildings of the Bavarian Palace Administration and therefore do not need their own annual or 14-day tickets. You will receive a free admission ticket for your child at the cash desk.

Can I print the tickets out myself if I order them online?

Unfortunately the tickets are not available as "Print at home" tickets. In case of an online order the tickets will be sent by post. Please note the possibly longer delivery times for orders from abroad.  

Please note: The tickets are also available at the cash desks of all the sights (see above).

Will the ticket save me having to wait at the cash desk?

Due to the different access systems and, if applicable, assignment to a guided tour, it is unfortunately necessary to obtain a corresponding free ticket at the ticket office; unfortunately, waiting times cannot always be avoided. It is not possible to visit the houses only upon presentation of the 14-day or annual season ticket.

Please note that no separate contingents are held for holders of an annual season ticket, a 14-day ticket or a "Königsschlösser" combination ticket and a free ticket can only be issued as long as tickets are available.

Is it necessary to reserve?

Basically you can visit all our houses without reservation. For groups it may be necessary to make a reservation; you will find corresponding information on the websites of the individual palaces and castles.

Please note that the group sizes for Neuschwanstein Castle had to be significantly reduced due to hygiene regulations. We recommend that you reserve your tickets in good time for your desired date at the ticket centre in Hohenschwangau. Otherwise, a visit may not be possible.

Are guided tours included in the ticket?

In properties that can only be visited by taking a guided tour, the tour is of course included in the 14-day or annual season ticket. Special tours or tours on particular topics for which there is a charge must however be paid for separately.

Are there reduced tickets?

The tickets are already priced at a particularly low rate; we therefore regret that no further reductions can be offered.
