stair tower


An old castle is a place that has evolved over time, full of corners and lots of stairs. Unfortunately, there are limited opportunities for wheelchair users and persons with severe mobility problems to explore Plassenburg Castle.

Designated disabled parking spaces are located in the Kasernenhof and disabled access to the castle from the Kasernenhof is possible through a separate entrance. The tin figure museum, which is located in this part of the building, is accessible via a lift and is also largely suitable for wheelchair users. The Museum of the Upper Main Region on the ground floor, as well as the museum shop and cafe are also wheelchair-accessible.

The top floors of the Museum of the Upper Main Region, the Frederick the Great Army Museum and the Hohenzollern in Franconia museum are only accessible via stairs.

Visually impaired visitors may take a trained guide dog into the exhibition. Tours can also be organised for blind visitors by prior arrangement.

Disabled toilets are available throughout the whole of the museum area.

We will be happy to help with any further questions about planning your visit.
