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.
A great piece of history to take in for anyone in munich. Plenty of time in linderhof and neuschwanstein to take in the sights and castle tours. Informative guide, comfortable coach. Be prepared to pay a little extra for the castle entrance but its worth it!
It's a long day, but well worthwhile. Seeing these castles is a real experience. Getting there on your own would be a real chore, so I highly recommend taking the tour.
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.
Gerda was an amazing tour guide!! The coach was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this day tour, you don't have to wait in lines or fight with parking.
This tour was so amazing! I recommend it to everyone. If you are older, there are a lot of stairs to climb and a long walk down a hill. For the young and fit, it's a must do!
We visited wonderful fairytale places. Our tour guide Ana was awesome. She spoke excellent English and was very well prepared. She explained everything in detail, which made the tour more interesting. We had ample time to visit the castles and make some shopping. I would recommend this tour to other tourists.
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.
This landmark castle was well worth the trip. The tour ride up to the castle and back were very comfortable. Having our guide hand us our entrance tickets, avoided the long lines. Would have like to have more time shopping the artisanal stores, that was my only complaint.
