I admit it, I waited too late to buy tickets directly from the Neuschwanstein website. My only safe option was to buy skip-the-line tickets here. I found this listing to be confusing b/c the itinerary lists both Castle Neuschwanstein and Castle Hohenschwangau (2 hour stops at each). I called Viator to ask for clarification, and the agent contacted the tour operator and told me that BOTH castles were included on the tour. Turns out, only Neuschwantstein was included, but not the smaller Hohenschwangau. And while the description says that you can either take the bus or hike to the top of the mountain, I was not given that option and had to hike it up. The guide was kind enough to give me her water bottle b/c I was not prepared to hike up a mountain that day! She had to then catch up to the body of the tour group who were well ahead of me. So, to sum up: 1) This is ONLY for the Schloss Neuschwanstein. 2) Expect to have to hike it up the mountain. 3) Save yourself a lot of money by planning ahead and buying the tickets online at least 3 weeks in advance directly from the castle's website. 4) The tour guide was nice and spoke excellent English.
our tour guide (don't remember his name) was brilliant. very nice person, great knowledge and way of explaining the story of the Fussen, bavarian king & both castles. looked after us and made sure that we feel comfortable.
