Walking route


Guttenberg Castle should offer an incomparable excursion experience for everyone. Therefore, the topic of accessibility is a high priority for us and we implement this throughout for all our guests wherever possible. To help you plan your excursion, you will find all the important information on accessibility in the respective areas of our castle here.

There are disabled toilets on the castle grounds both in the area of the Deutsche Greifenwarte and in the entrance area opposite the ticket office.

The flight demonstration is accessible via a separate barrier-free entrance. The tour leads through the medieval kennel grounds and is therefore unfortunately not barrier-free.

The castle tavern and part of the adjacent terrace as well as all event rooms are accessible without barriers.

The Renaissance building is only accessible via a stone spiral staircase and is therefore unfortunately not barrier-free.


You and your four-legged friends are very welcome in the outdoor area of Guttenberg Castle! Exceptions for dogs are the castle museum and the area of the Deutsche Greifenwarte from the barrier at the castle bridge. Dogs are best kept in the shady beer garden during their stay in the Castle Museum and the Deutsche Greifenwarte, where they are provided with fresh water.
