Wartburg Castle Reviews
Also...an Feiertagen, wie z.B. Pfingsten muss man wirklich nach einem Parkplatz suchen. Wenn man dann Glück hat, erwischt man den 1/2-stündigen Shuttlebus 8€ für 2EW+2Ki für eine Fahrt.

So back and forth €16 plus parking fee, of course. (Friends were lucky and could park at the top of the castle €5.) So before you enter the castle, you're really going coal before you enter the castle. But then the lead is very interesting and impressive. Even teenagers are "taken with them," as at the end of the tour the grand banquet hall is described as a filming location of ruby red, sapphire blue and emerald green.
Wir waren in dieser geschichtsträchtigen Burg sehr früh (8.30 Uhr) und haben eine Führung mit insgesamt 4 Personen mitgemacht. Sehr informativ.

Amazing place, where you can relax after long business day. Walking distance from Eisenach downtown and the best time for visit after all tourists are gone after 5PM. Only in that time you will enjoy no rush, stress crowds...so simply you will feel atmosphere of this wonderful place. Regular place for relax👍
Fantastic castle with a lot of history and a great view. You can get a guided tour for 10€ through the different rooms which is definitely worth doing. Keep in mind that parking is at the start of the slope do you have to pay 5€ and walk about 200m upwards.
