Full description

Spend a day in picturesque Bavaria with this van tour from Munich. Spend the day enjoying a drive on the Romantic Road in the Bavarian Alps. On the way to the castle of Neuschwanstein, you’ll pass through old, quaint Bavarian villages and scenic countryside. When you reach Neuschwanstein you’ll be taken on a guided tour of the castle, which was built in the 19th century in the Romanesque Revival style.

The palace sits on a craggy hill commanding views of the village of Hohenschwangau below. From the Marienbridge you’ll have breathtaking views of the castle. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a royal retreat and in honor of Richard Wagner, the composer. After the death of Ludwig II, the palace was opened to the public in 1886, and now hosts more than 1.3 million visitors each year.

Neuschwanstein has appeared in numerous movies and was also used as a model for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland. You’ll walk through a lovely gorge featuring cascades and waterfalls. On the way back you’ll stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Church of Wieskirch built in the 17th century. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit a Bavarian cheese farm, where you can purchase an optional cheese and sausage platter with freshly baked bread. Enjoy the spectacular, 360-degree mountain views from the farm.

My family and I recently spent 14 days in Europe, visiting five different cities, and Munich, but more specifically, THIS TOUR, was the ultimate highlight. Our tour guide was Mario, and he had this tour down to a science! We were given plenty of time to eat and shop and take photos. Mario even took us to a special place along the route to get fantastic family photos with the castle in the background. We have some AMAZING memories of Bavaria, now, thanks to Mario and this perfect tour! Take it. You won't be sorry.

Mario was an incredible tour guide! We saw two historic churches, the cheese and meats for lunch were delicious alongside what was probably one of the best cakes I’ve ever had in my life — the whole tour was fun and informative, we never felt rushed, and the castle was of course really impressive. Going by van also meant we beat all of the crowds - Mario had a lot of great advice along the way - and we had a really nice day!
