A wonderful day, with lots of snow, the visit toLinderhop and Neschanstein was lovely. Just be aware of the long and steep climb to Neuschwanstein Castle. While there were horse drawn carriages the queue was very long and our young daughter struggled with the climb.
Awesome! We went in a snowstorm and spent the day enjoying a magical tour of the castles and Bavaria with the soft snowflakes falling down around us. Still we saw everything...kudos to the bus driver who managed the slippery road beautifully and got us safely back to our hotel
Both are spectacular castles to see. Neuschwanstein is like a fairytale castle without the glam inside and Linderhof the total opposite being decorated with so much gold and beautiful original furniture. Take the horse carriage if your not too fit to walk up the hill to Neuschwanstein and then walk back down later.
great but be prepared to walk a lot especially uphill
Neuschwanstein is breathtaking! While Linderhof is beautiful and comfortable. Tour guide and coach are comfortable, it's a very enjoyable trip!
The pure splendor of these castles cannot be described in words. Mesmerising views especially atop the hills of Neuschwanstein. Although it was a pity that during my visit in winter, the outdoor statues at Linderhof was covered for protection.
If you go to Munich, I'd recommend this HIGHLY. Our guide was very good. It involves a scenic drive to get to the castle which is nice in it's own right. If you go, make sure you leave enough time to get to the castle (especially if you walk). Highly recommend making the extra walk to get to the bridge for a panoramic view of the castle and the valley below.
Highlight of my trip. Gorgeous castle well worth the hike up the hill.
It was fabulous! The tour guide was so good, She had the schedule down to the minute, had an interesting commentary during the journey, friendly, made the trip fun. The bus driver was awesome also, smooth ride, great trip. The layout of the tour was just what we had hoped for. We loved the castles and the countryside that we traveled through.
The whole tour was fantastic but Mother Nature had other plans-heavy fog that blocked any views. Our guide was great, informative and personable. Would do it all over again. Well run! We rate the tour as a five star. Definitely worth it.
Stunningly gorgeous. Neuschwanstein is simply amazing, a must see for anyone in the area. Seeing the castle as you walk up to mountain towards it is breathtaking. When you finally get to the top (a 15 minute walk), you can then choose to go yet further up. This is also a must do, you can climb up to a bridge that overlooks the castle. This is where the beautiful photos really come from, as you can get a bird's eye few of the castle, and the land falling away behind it. Linderhof was more of an interesting place, than it was gorgeous. The castle is full of eccentricities, that make it interesting but also far out of touch with todays tastes. That being said, the trip into the alps, and simply being in that mountain range around Linderhof is worth the trip. Unbelievable area, gorgeous landscape, fresh air! The trip to that area alone, made the trip to Linderhof worth it.
All told, this trip really makes for a fairy-tale day, with the mountain ranges, fantastic castles and quaint little villages.
Was great tour and loved every bit of it. Very recommended. Thanks to our guide Francisca who made the long drive bearable.
The ease of finding the bus and leaving was great. The tour was exactly what we expected. We were a little disappointed that they were doing renovations at Linderhof so we feel as though we missed something. It was a typical late November foggy day at Neuschwanstein so it was surrounded by clouds. That did not dull the beauty. A lot of walking and stairs so if you have any mobility issues, please let your guide know as the castle has a elevator for such needs. Our bus guide was lovely. Can't remember her name - small blonde. She was terrific and sweet. Highly recommend this tour. Oh yeah - and definitely take the horse drawn carriage up and down - so fun (note: the bus and carriage up and down stop by 3:30 - so plan accordingly or it is a long walk down).
