From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

1. From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

Spend a day in picturesque Bavaria, enjoying a drive on the Romantic Road in the Bavarian Alps. On the way to the fairy tale 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 it 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 get a cheese and sausage platter with fresh baked bread. There are spectacular, 360-degree mountain view to enjoy here as well.

Absolutely amazing. My sons (aged 23 and 22) and I booked this tour, and we loved it. We stopped at two beautiful churches, which were so interesting to visit, and made the ride from Munich seem very short. After visiting the breathtaking castle and it’s views, we had a late lunch in a village and we’ had some time to walk around and enjoy the shops. Mario, our guide, was also a joy. If you have the chance, this is a must.

Arnem (tour guide) did a fantastic job adding to the tour due to COVID closures that precluded visits to secondary attractions. For a company like this to make the most out of the situation to accommodate its guests makes it a world class company for any traveler.

The tour and schedule was perfect. Mario was great and very able to work with our situation. The stops in the outer towns were very nice and offered a different view of the region.

Mario was knowledgeable and fun! Great stops to break up the drive, interesting churches and amenities available. Excellent door to door service!

Very nice but very fast, they do not allow you to enjoy the places to the fullest
