Discover the stories, fables and legends hidden behind the walls of the Mad King's Palace, which inspired Walt Disney himself, on this tour to Neuschwanstein Castle from Munich.
Neuschwanstein Castle Tour
Having met up at Munich Hauptbahnhopf on the morning of the tour, we'll leave the city behind and head to the south of Bavaria by bus or by train, depending on the season. During the two hour trip, the professional English-speaking guide will keep us entertained with fascinating facts about the region.
Not only will we get to see Neuschwanstein Castle itself, we'll also have the opportunity to admire the nearby Hohenschwangau Castle. Less well known than its neighbour but equally beautiful, it was the childhood home of Ludwig II of Bavaria, the creator of Neuschwanstein. We'll hear all about this historic figure, who was better known by his nickname - the Mad King, as we admire the legendary castle that inspired Walt Disney's own fairytale palace.
The tour will take you to the best viewpoints to admire Newschwanstein's magnificent architecture, like the Marienbrücke, a bridge that offers spectacular photo opportunities of the Bavarian landscapes from its 98 feet (30 metres) in height. If there's time and the weather is good, we can also stroll down to the lake in the castle's grounds and take a dip, or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the countryside. We'll also make a stop for you to have food and drinks.
You'll have the choice to enter Neuschwanstein Castle to see its majestic interior decoration: while tickets aren't included, you won't have to wait in line. The castle is a short uphill walk from the car park, or you can choose to get there by horse-drawn carriage or bus instead.
After an unforgettable nine hours discovering German history and architecture, we'll head back to Munich where the tour will end.
