If you’re looking for a way up to Hyrule Castle’s Throne Room in Zelda TOTK, here’s where to find the Sanctum and the best routes to help you reach it.

The Throne Room in Hyrule Castle is one of the most important locations in Tears of the Kingdom. After all, this is where you’ll face off against a major boss fight (we won’t spoil it), and discover a gift left for Link by Zelda.

To get to the Throne Room, you’ll need to make your way to Hyrule Castle’s central point. Here’s how it’s done:

Zelda TOTK Where Is the Throne Room?

The Throne Room (also known as the Sanctum) is in the center of Hyrule Castle on the 1st Floor in Zelda: TOTK.

Players can easily get there by using their Glider from Lookout Landing and dropping inside the castle’s central spire.

For those confused, the Throne Room and the Sanctum are the same area in Hyrule Castle, a large circular room where Zelda’s throne can be found.

How to Get to the Throne Room in TOTK

There are two easy methods to get to the Throne Room of Hyrule Castle in Zelda: TOTK:

From Above (Easiest Method)

If you have enough Stamina (two wheels will do) or you have a Stamina Elixir to hand, you can glide right to the Throne Room from Lookout Landing’s Skyview Tower.

The Sage of Wind or Glide Suit will make this even easier, if you have them to hand.
