Castle tour
A castle tour lasts roughly 50 minutes, during which time you learn about the rise and fall of the Thuringian landgraves, interesting facts about the history of the castle's construction and what makes the late Romanesque double chapel so special.
Book a castle tour
Guided tour for children
Dressed as miniature members of the royal court, you parade Neuenburg Castle and explore certain rooms. One of Neuenburg Castle’s greatest secrets is, of course, revealed: the legendary “Woman in White”.
Booking enquiries From April to October, costumed public events will take place at 2 p.m. every day from Tuesday to Sunday (November to March: Tuesday to Saturday). These can be attended without booking. Minimum group size: eight people.

Tour with audio guide
The audio guides include not only the museum, but also the grounds of the castle as far as the “Dicker Wilhelm” keep. The outdoor walk especially, with its many glimpses of nature, is extremely enjoyable with the audio tour playing in the background.

Museum remains closed until further notice

Based on the "Fourth Law for the Protection of the Population in the Event of an Epidemic Situation of National Significance" in conjunction with the local 7-day incidence, the museum will remain closed until further notice.

We will inform you about the current developments on our websites and social media.
