Wartburg Castle Photos
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.
