Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The castles are straight out of a fairy tale. It is well worth it. As an improvement to the day, a lunch stop would have been nice.
This tour was the best of all, our tour guide was absolutely wonderful he knew everything about everything it's a big day but well worth doing
Lots of climbing (more than 200 steps in the castle but well worth the effort. View from the bridge as right out of Disney. Linderhoff was small but the interiors were well worth it. Great guide as well
Highly recommended tour to see both castles. Tickets were booked ahead of time so we skipped straight to the front of the line.
It's worth to visit there...can't think any reason not to visit the castle if you are first time to go Munchen
Great tour! We did not go inside any of the castles as we usually prefer them on the outside. At Linderhof this gave us time to look around the amazingly beautiful gardens. We made a short stop in Oberammagau which was a beautiful place. However we did not have that much time to look around. The highlight of the day was the view from Marienbrücke where you have the most amazing view over Neuschwanstein! We did not bother waiting in line for the buses and the walk up to Marienbrücke only took about 25 minutes. The walk through the forest was very pleasant.
Loved the tour! The guide kept excusing himself for Linderhof not being a big enough castle, but we actually loved it more than Neuschwanstein. Linderhof is small but extremely charming and beautiful, Neuschwanstein is big and impressive, but much more impersonal.
The walk up to the Neuschwanstein (which we eventually chose over the carriage or the bus, due to the long waiting lines) was easier than expected, despite me not being fit at all. The estimate was around 40 minutes, I walked it in about 25 (it was tiring, but nevertheless). It's about 1km of walking, and it's not really steep. The views up there alone are worth the trip.
Don't miss out on going to the Marienbridge as well (there's some extra walking after you reach the castle), the view of the castle is beautiful.
A downside to the castle is that, despite having audio guides, the whole group you enter with has to wait for the audio guide section to finish in order to pass to the next room. We tend to visit places at a faster pace, so the long waiting in every room was excruciating.
We liked the guide, but we disliked that he hinted (not subtly at all even) that we should tip him. I don't mind tipping, but not when it's being suggested to me.
It was our second time and it was just as enjoyable as the first one, except for the rain. Both our guide and driver were pleasant and professional.
Great tour, loved the sights and had adequate time to enjoy everything.
The tour was great! Very accommodating and alots of knowledge! Our tour guide Francesca was amazing! Although there are lots of tourists it's worth it! Not just for the big castle! Great way to see the country side of Germany!
