Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Neuschwanstein Castle Small-Group Day Tour from Munich

This glorious folly was built in the 19th century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by myth and who himself became a legend. The shimmering white towers of the castle among the clouds are instantly recognizable to many and is the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, and is also famous as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Castle. To visit it is to step inside a fairy tale.

Your guide will tell the engaging story of King Ludwig's renowned and tragic reign, of his turbulent times, and of the obsession that drove him to build his fantasy castle in the mountains and ultimately destroyed him. Take an exclusive internal tour of the king's private chambers with a specialist castle guide.

Entrance fees to the Neuschwanstein Castle are not included. A supplement of 12 euros (per person) is payable direct. This guided tour includes advance booking so you can skip long lines and gain quick access to the Neuschwanstein Castle. Don't waste time waiting in lines on vacation!

The journey to Neuschwanstein takes approximately 2 hours by train. Germany's rail system is world renown and this journey to the Alps is no exception. Offering spectacular views, trains are clean, comfortable and equipped with washrooms. Feel free to walk around and chat to your fellow travellers as well as your guide, who can answer any questions about Munich and Bavaria.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Excellent trip and great value! Beautiful structure and setting! Jeff our guide did an awesome job of describing the complete history of Bavaria, Germany and Ludwig. The train ride to and from was a great opportunity to see the country side and especially take photos from windows that opened. Highly recommend this tour and especially Jeff!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

This tour was an absolute highlight of our holiday to Munich. Our tour guide Craig was great, very engaging and made sure everyone in the group was included in chats and activities. The only notes I'd add to the tour description would be to wear good walking shoes (one gentleman in our group had dress shoes on which were a nightmare for walking uphill in the snow!), and for vegetarians to pack their own lunch.

The castle is beautiful, the tour is well organised and smoothly run. We had a fantastic day.
