Gate Building Renovation, Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
Location: Füssen, Germany
- Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most famous sights in Germany with around 1.5 million visitors from all over the world – with correspondingly high maintenance costs.
- As part of continuous renovation measures, the eastern gateway building was completely scaffolded whereby a temporary weather protection roof spanned the access to the castle.
- Work and safety scaffold including a temporary roof for pinpointing and documenting the damage to the facade and roof areas as well as for subsequent renovation work.
- Adapting to local site conditions with countless structural extensions, projections and recesses along with circular tower scaffolding.
- The exceptional location and the year-long influx of visitors meant that the entire scaffold assembly had to be carried out manually without telescopic handler and crane support.

With the help of the PERI innovation in the form of the heatable Keder-sheeted roof, we could reduce the snow load and, in the process, cost-effectively realize the bridging and load transfer constructions – a result of the excellent collaboration with the PERI engineers who supported us from the planning stage through to implementation on the construction site. In spite of the difficult geometry of the building, we didn´t need any additional filler areas or overlaps due to the form-fitting and non-positive connection of PERI UP Flex. The scaffolding also visually leaves an impressive overall impression and reproduces the silhouette of the gateway building in an enlarged form. This has allowed us to meet the client´s requirements – which has been so successful that up to 8,000 visitors stand and marvel at the scaffolding every day.
- PERI UP Flex solution for the scaffolding and enclosure operations optimally adapted to suit local site conditions and static requirements.
- On-going project support provided by PERI scaffolding specialists: from project-specific scaffold planning through to on-site assembly support.
- For the first time in scaffolding: heatable roof tarpaulins ensure that unfavourable snow loads are prevented during the winter months.
