From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

1. From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

Discover one of Bavaria's most scenic landscapes on this tour from Munich by train and van. Marvel at the stature and delicate architecture of Neuschwanstein Castle standing proud atop a hill and surrounded by forested mountains. See the sprawling valley from the foot of the castle walls and learn about its history from your guide along a walking tour of the grounds. Located 2 hours from Munich, the enchanting old-world town of Füssen lies in the foothills of the Alps, framed by one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the world. Towering far above the village, seemingly sculpted out of the very mountains that rise magnificently to the heavens, is a sight made from the stuff of dreams: the fabulous and ethereal Neuschwanstein Castle. This glorious folly was built in the 19th-Century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by mythology and who himself became a legend. The shimmering white towers of the castle among the clouds are instantly recognizable to many who haven’t ever heard the name Neuschwanstein. It is the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle and is famous the world over as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang castle. To visit it is to step inside a fairy tale. On this full-day tour from Munich, your guide will take you by train or bus and accompany you uphill to the castle’s lofty perch, where it sits gleaming above a spectacular panorama of mountains, lakes, and valleys. It’s not just about the castle – it’s also about its wonderful location. You will go to the best vantage points and explore the lake. If time and weather permits, you can even enjoy a swim. Get postcard-perfect views of the equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle, the waterfall gorge, and the stunning Marienbrücke Bridge, suspended high above it all. While you are marveling at the beauty, your guide will tell you the engaging story of King Ludwig’s renowned and tragic reign, his turbulent times, and of the obsession that drove him to build his fantasy castle in the mountains that ultimately destroyed him. If you choose to purchase a ticket on the day, skip the long lines for the separate internal tour of the king’s private chambers by a specialist castle guide. The tour is the most practical way to admire this amazing fantasy world.

This was such a great tour! From start to finish, I didn’t have to think about a single thing regarding logistics. I’ve done the Castle Neuschwanstein day trip/tour on my own before and it was a bit of stress in figuring routes/tickets/timing, etc. so this time I wanted to basically sit back and relax. Our tour guide Thomas was fantastic, he provided a lot of history and backstory to the Castle as well has King Ludwig II himself so that this time around when I saw the castle, a lot more things made sense. Thomas was fun, insightful and very informative. Could not recommend this tour enough.

Probably my favorite tour of the entire trip. The bus was easy to find and paying the extra for the snacks and drinks on the bus was totally worth it. Our driver and guide were both enjoyable and I learned a great deal about German history. The castles themselves were gorgeous, even if you can't take pictures inside. Not to mention waking thigh thy snow to the last castle. It was like a fairytale. The only down side was the place they reserved for lunch was terribly expensive, even though the options were worth the money. Just be prepared to spend a fair amount there.

We had an amazing tour to Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles with Elizabeth and Samead. The castles are incredible, so many cute villages and our guide was very knowledgeable. It was a very relaxed day with plenty of time to see the sights and free snacks on the way :) highly recommend!

Wonderful tour hosted by Peter. Highly recommend going premium. Be prepared for a lot of walking and stairs. Great views getting there. Can’t say enough about Peter.

Carefully planned route, transport always on time, friendly guide, knowledgeable about the destination, efficient and professional.
