Visitors with disabilitys

The palace grounds are largely wheelchair-accessible. Owing to the somewhat uneven footpaths a carer/companion may be required to help visitors with impaired mobility.

Admission to the Wilhelmsthal Palace is by guided tour only. The building is a historical monument accessed by a flight of stairs, with an interior also featuring stairs. A carer/companion will be required to help mobility-impaired visitors. For the protection of the delicate parquetry floors, walking canes need to be fitted with rubber tips.
