Full description
In the seclusion of the mountains, King Ludwig II of Bavaria built 2 of his dream-castles: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. This trip from Munich in a luxury air-conditioned tour-bus will allow you to visit these two important examples of western architecture. Neuschwanstein Castle, in its stunning position in the foothills of the Alps, is also one of the most impressive sights in Germany. Here you will have around 4 hours to explore comfortably every fascinating detail. Linderhof is the only castle that Ludwig the II managed to complete. Around noon you will take a rest at Hohenschwangau Castle, Ludwig's childhood home, for lunch (not included). In addition, you will stop for a short time in Oberammergau, for the opportunity to photograph this picturesque little town and its environs, and to do a little shopping.

    The guide was great! (Our trip was on July 28, 2021) The group of travelers was large and no distance between people was observed in the bus. We did not stop in the village of Oberammergau which was written in the programme (for shopping and taking photos) because our group was too large. You should either form smaller groups or exclude the visit to the village from the programme if it is not guaranteed.

    our tour guide was great, the bus was nice and comfortable. Wifi was a little slow but free wifi is never fast. It has USB ports for chargers. The castles were extravagant, the only thing is the weather was bad during my tour and the Bridge for the view of Neuschwanstein castle was closed. Our guide gave us so much info, she was really great.

    The most important factor in our day trip to the two castles was the quality of our guide, Hanae. Her insights along the way were never forced, but seemed a natural and important part in preparing us for what we would see next. Please give special praise to Hanae, and to our driver, Mira, as well, in managing the winding roads flawlessly. Even though the weather was very difficult when we got to Neuschwanstein - hard rain for several hours - the experience of the walk to the castle and in side were unforgettable. Our guide in the castle was a bit too liberal for my liking with his personal perspectives on Ludwig - NOT helpful, and certainly not a part of his training to lead our tour. We were the 3:05 p.m. English tour on Wednesday, July 14. Linderhof was equally amazing, with perfect weather there. Again, our guide was quietly in charge and directed us appropriately. It is rare to find a guide who keeps things on track without dominating in any way. Again thank you Hanae
