You can only unlock doors in Hogwarts Legacy after getting the Unlocking Charm, Alohomora. Once you obtain this particular spell in a certain main story mission, you will be able to start unlocking doors in Hogwarts castle, Hogsmeade and the World Map. 

With each lock after obtaining Alohomora, you unlock the doors through a mini-game where you have to line up respective green and red dots. Then, the treasures behind each locked door will be yours, including gold, gear, and Hogwarts Legacy's various collectables throughout the game.

With that, you are now fully equipped with all you need to know thanks to our "unlock doors Hogwarts Legacy" guide. For more tips on the game, find out where to find Thestrals in Hogwarts Legacy. Alternatively, why not take a look at the exact size of the Hogwarts Legacy map
