Wartburg Castle Photos

From: Wartburg Castle

Wartburg Castle entrance

A paved walking path from the parking lot leads uphill to Wartburg Castle's Zugbrücke or entrance bridge.

The path is about 500 meters long, and although it's a little steep in places, it's easy enough to climb or descend as long as the pavement isn't icy.

If you're elderly, infirm, or handicapped, you can take a free shuttle from the parking lot to the castle entrance.
