In central Füssen, you’ll board your air-conditioned coach and enjoy the scenic drive south to Hohenschwangau, where a shuttle bus to the impressive bridge of Marienbrücke awaits you. During the drive, you’ll absorb spectacular views of Pöllat Gorge and catch your initial glimpse of Neuschwanstein Castle.
Listen to history-rich commentary from your guide as you approach the fantastical fortress, built for the eccentric King Ludwig II in 1869. Bypass long entrance lines with your skip-the-line ticket and start exploring the castle’s opulent chambers.
Marvel at the decadent Byzantine Throne Room, peek into the richly decorated bedroom of King Ludwig and admire murals depicting composer Richard Wagner in Minstrel’s Hall. When your tour concludes, enjoy some time to explore the castle’s grounds independently — be sure to capture photographs in front of the landmark or revitalize with snacks in the town center at your own expense.
Then, greet your guide at a prearranged location and relax during the journey back to Füssen, where the tour concludes.
