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.
You can't come to Germany and not do this tour! The sites were beautiful and it was definitely worth going to the Linderhof Castle before Neuschwanstein. It's a long trek up, so take the bus up and walk back down. Your time is limited so you'll want to spend more time at the castle and then enjoy the view on the way back.
Great trip with a wonderful tour guide. Well worth the travel time from Munich. The Neuschwanstein Castle tour was much improved from my last visit 30 years earlier. A must for any visit to Bavaria.
Initially we were thinking to make this tour by renting a car. Thank god we chose Viator. Our guide Monika was so kind and helpfull. She gave information about the tour but also about the history of Germany, Baveria and Munich. This was the first guided tour in my life and I'm so happy with it.
Beautiful. Both castles were very nice. Big difference from medieval castles. Amazing sights. Very fun walk. If you don't want to walk, you can take a bus or horse carriage, the latter for a small fee. Guide was crazy. She felt Ludwig wasn't crazy. After hearing everything...he definitely was
Wonderful trip. Be prepared to walk, uphill, to get to Newschwanstein. 1 hour in Oberommegau was not quite long enough. If you wanted to shop, there wasn't much time to tour the town. It was a great trip and the second time I've used Viator. The staff is always helpful and busses are comfortable. Well worth the money.
A very well organised and most enjoyable day out. The guide was very informative and visits to the castles were excellent. Make sure you have good walking shoes for Neuschwanstein !!
Great tour! The guide was knowledgable and well organized. Great to see two houses and the little town we went to was sweet.
The bus was on time, the scenery from Munich to the castle was amazing. The guide describe every place we saw from Munich to the castle. She carefully summarized every aspect of the place we were seen, and similarly was carefully with the time we were expending in every place we went. At the end she summarized the important aspect of the trip and ask questions and explain in detail questions of the travelers. I highly recommend this excursion.
Great combination tour of two wonderful castles outside of Munich. Linderhof was my most favorite, though it was smaller, the gardens and grounds were gorgeous. Neuschwanstein was incredible in size and construction. The walk up the mountain can be quite strenuous so buy the bus ticket first or rent a carriage if you have difficulties walking. Our guide was very informative and gave great restaurant recommendations. Wonderful day trip away from Munich and one of the highlights of our mini European holiday.
Loved the castle. Lots of walking with lots of stairs. We enjoyed it!
Well organised tour, comfortable coach and guide was easy to understand.
It was really nice tour. The time was not sufficient for the tour but really enjoyed all the way. The tour guide was very helpful and inforamtive. It was raining most of the time and couldn't see the mountains, hence my advice is please avoid during the rainy day.
-Christine, our guide, did a great job. She was organized, knowledgeable, and very pleasant.
-Neuschwanstein Castle is truly a sight to behold and well worth the trip.
-While at Neuschwanstein, if you are fit and able to move quickly, make sure you get to the bridge before your tour of the castle. They view is amazing! Be warned, it is quite a workout and you have to hurry up the hill - don't stop for photos until you get there - as you can get the others on the way down.
-Linderhof is just OK. I'd prefer if they shortened that leg of the trip and gave you more time at Neuschwanstein.
--The timeline is very tight when you arrive at Neuschwanstein. The tour guide will steer you to eat at a specific restaurant (the name was Hotel ___ - I can't remember it off the top of my head, they park the bus right next to it) , but the service there was horrible and it took too long - we almost missed our chance to get to the bridge before our castle tour
