  • Always worth a visit. You can't write something else. The guides are very good and you get always a professional response to questions.

  • The Wartburg Castle is worth a visit in any case, however, their historical significance in a guide opens up. The outdoor area is accessible at all times, the guided tour of the Interior costs 9 euros. However, there are times that the castle is very crowded. We have searched us niche, early in the morning or in the evening, which was possible due to a stay in the hotel at the Wartburg Castle.

  • Outside of school holidays, we were on a Saturday there. We paid our fee 9 EUR for the leadership, which immediately went off. The maiden ran through the Castle and told all sorts of useful information, also on questions she could be always knowledgeable information. Conclusion: a tour with a value, something expensive but with 9 EUR per person, also parking costs 5 EUR!
