Discover the magic of Neuschwanstein, the fairytale castle of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, on this unforgettable 8-hour tour. Nestled in the heart of the majestic Bavarian Alps, Neuschwanstein is a must-see for any traveler. Your tour begins with a comfortable and scenic drive from Munich to Hohenschwangau, the small town beneath Neuschwanstein Castle. On the way, you'll have the opportunity to admire the rolling hills of the Bavarian countryside and capture the breathtaking views with your camera. Once in Hohenschwangau, you'll have time to explore its charming shops, the serene Alpsee lake, and the grounds around the smaller Hohenschwangau Castle. Then, it's time for the climb up to Neuschwanstein. Your driver-guide (or separate driver and guide) will share the story of King Ludwig II of Bavaria and the history of the castle along the way. A shuttle bus up to Marienbrücke is available for those with mobility issues. Upon arrival at Neuschwanstein, you'll first visit the Marienbrücke, a suspension bridge that provides stunning views of both the palace and the surrounding countryside. Then, you'll be taken on a tour of the palace's lavish, myth-inspired interior. After the tour, you'll have time for souvenir shopping and a break. Finally, you'll be driven back to Munich, where your guide will accompany you to your hotel or to a prearranged drop-off point. Please note that only employees of Neuschwanstein are allowed to give tours inside the castle and you will be provided with an audio guide. For this tour, you can choose between an option with a driver-guide or a separate driver and guide. Our driver-guides are well-versed in history and can provide an adequate overview. For a more in-depth tour, we recommend booking the option with a separate driver and a professional local guide.
