Castle Leuchtenburg accessible for people with a restricetd mobility.
Our Porcelain Experience is accessible for people with restricted mobility. Disability badge holders are eligible for admission at the concession rate of 11 euro. Any registered accompanying person will enter free of charge. Assistance and guide dogs are welcome.
All new exhibition rooms of the "Porcelain Experience" are wheelchair accessible. A lift will take you to the porcelain treasures and from there visitors with restricted mobility can continue their tour via wheelchair access. In addition to that, our Visitor Centre with its snack bar and terrace as well as our conference hall at the Gate House Hall are also accessible for people with restricted mobility. A lift is also available at our Castle Tavern. There are three disabled toilet facilities on the Castle premises (on the ground floor of the Gate House; on the first floor of the Gate House by the conference room as well as on the ground floor of the Lodging House at the Porcelain Experience).
For an enjoyable tour, our visitors can hire rollator walkers and wheelchairs FREE OF CHARGE.
To our visitors with restricted mobility using wheelchairs, we recommend an unforgettable impression of the Castle via the easy-access Panorama Path whose horseshoe-path leads to the Castle and offers striking views. The surface of the Inner Bailey has been renewed with shell limestone material and now provides equally easy-access and movement for wheelchair-users with an accompanying person, rollator-users and people with push-chairs. Wheelchair-users are allowed to drive up to the Castle and leave their cars at the forecourt.
Please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to assist you any time.
In January 2016, the Thüringer Tourismus GmbH (TTG) issued a certified label called „Travelling For Everyone“ („Reisen für Alle“) – it is a nation-wide accredited and official labelling system of the tourism sector for places and companies providing easy-access to people with restricted mobility. The „Porcelain Experience Castle Leuchtenburg“ has been accredited to hold this label.
