Visiting Germany's Royal Castles from Munich

Visiting Germany's Royal Castles from Munich
Visit Bavaria’s royal castles and you’ll get a serious dose of German history and fairytale architecture, courtesy of their maker, King Ludwig of Bavaria. See below to discover the most ornate palaces in the region and learn how best to see them.

The inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Neuschwanstein was built by King Ludwig II in the 19th century. Capture the architectural grandeur and picturesque mountain scenery on a visit to this UNESCO-listed site.
How to Visit: Choose between small-group and private tours, many of which combine a visit to Neuschwanstein with stops at other German castles, such as Linderhof and Hohenschwangau. Opt for a multi-day trip to explore more of Bavaria, or spend the day in the quaint village of Oberammergau before returning to Munich.

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Alpsee and Schwansee lakes near the Austrian border, the magnificent Hohenschwangau Castle was the childhood home of King Ludwig II.
How to Visit: For the royal treatment, choose a full-day tour that visits multiple Bavarian castles, including Hohenschwangau, Linderhof, and Neuschwanstein. 

Thought to be modeled after the Palace of Versailles in France, Linderhof Palace is the smallest of the three palaces built by the king and the only one that he lived to see completed.
How to Visit: Keep Munich as your home base by booking a single-day tour to Linderhof (many of which combine a visit to this palace with stops at other castles), or choose a multi-day trip to see more of Bavaria.

One of King Ludwig II’s homes on Herreninsel Island, Herrenchiemsee showcases the king’s legacy. It is also thought to be modeled after the Palace of Versailles.
How to Visit: Herrenchiemsee Palace is most often visited from Munich by train. A guided trip through the palace, combined with a walking tour of the palace’s gardens and a boat tour of the surrounding islands, is a great way to spend a full day.
