What You Can Expect

Small-Group Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castle Luxury Coach Day Trip from Munich

Visit Linderhof Castle during your day trip

You’ll be picked up from central Munich in the morning for your day trip to two gems of the Bavarian Alps: Neuschwanstein Castle and Linderhof Palace. On your scenic 1.5-hour drive, your expert guide provides commentary about the history and significance of the Bavaria region and its attractions. Your luxury coach offers comfortable seats, panoramic windows, Wi-Fi and a restroom, ensuring optimal comfort throughout your journey. Enjoy a complimentary snack box on board, with additional snacks and drinks available for purchase.

Your first stop is Linderhof Palace, a small palace built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Though inspired by France’s Versailles Palace, Linderhof’s interior is actually rather private and humble, as you’ll see on your 1-hour guided tour, but head to the surrounding gardens and you’ll discover why they’re considered among the most beautiful in the world, combining elements of Baroque, Italian Renaissance and English styles.

Leaving Linderhof behind, head next to Oberammergau, where you’ll have about 30 minutes of free time to walk around. Wander the lanes of this quaint village and see beautiful examples of the traditional art of woodcarving.

Continue driving along famous Romantic Road to the foot of majestic Neuschwanstein Castle. Before hiking up the hill for your guided tour of the castle, you can either have lunch (own expense) or set out for Mary's Bridge (Marienbrücke), the best spot for postcard views of the castle.

The most famous of three royal palaces built for King Louis II of Bavaria, Neuschwanstein sits on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau. Take a guided tour of the 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace to learn about its peculiar past: it was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive, crazed king, but it was opened to the public after his death in 1886.

Today Neuschwanstein is an architectural icon; in fact, it inspired Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and closely resembles Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland!

After your tour of the castle, relax on the drive back to Munich.

Excellent tour, only about 18 people on our tour. Plenty of free time to do and see what you would like to see and do. The bus is truly a luxury bus, with stagged seating, so plenty of personal space.. Highly recommend this tour to see the castles

This tour was awesome! We did it the second day we arrived in Europe. The castles were amazing, not to mention the view of the countryside and other towns on the way back to Munich. I would recommend this trip to every one. Just enough people in our group to make it enjoyable. The guide was great and very knowledgeable.

Loved this!! So glad we did the small group tour- the extra money was well worth it! From the moment we stepped on the bus and handed a 'snack box' with more than enough snacks for a day, as well as a fresh banana and a coffee- from the buses own coffee machine!!- it felt like a great decision. The guide was informative, and it was one of the best days on our European holiday. Would highly recommend :
