People with a mobility impairment
Despite the normal ban on vehicles, you can register with us for permission to drive up in front of the entrance to the Schloss or into the courtyard, and leave your car there.
The kitchen that dates from the Middle Ages, the former coach house and the chapel with the wonderful wall paintings - these are all accessible by wheelchair over a small threshold on the level of the courtyard, as are the disabled toilet facilities in the outbuildings.
People with a visual impairment
Guide dogs are the only dogs allowed into the Schloss.
