    What To Expect

    Additional Info

    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
    • Wheelchair accessible
    • Stroller accessible
    • Infant seats available
    • No heart problems or other serious medical conditions
    • Are you able to walk slightly uphill from the car park to Neuschwanstein castle - approx. 1,5 km/1mile in an hour's time? If not, we have to calculate additional (waiting-) time for the horse-hybrid carriage or the Shuttle bus (not operating during snow and ice) – Anyway, an approx. 450 meters/0.28 miles uphill walk (up to 15 % slope) or an approx. 500 meters/0.3 miles downhill walk (up to 19 % gradient) from the respective terminal to the entrance of the castle have to be managed in any case! We can accompany you so that you can reach your castle tour in time.
    • In Neuschwanstein castle there are 346 stairs alltogether (up and down) to be managed. If this is too much for you, and if you have an appropriate medical certificate of disability or restriction of mobility or similar (must be scanned and posted to us in advance), we can book an exclusive lift service only for you with a maximum of one companion, accompanied by a castle-staff. The elevator service is without additional costs, but (because of fire regulations) the number of tours with that service is very limited and must be reconfirmed by the castle authorities. PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 THE ELEVATOR IS NOT OPERATING!!!
    • To Hohenschwangau castle there is a carriage service (not in winter season) almost from door-to-door. You have to climb stairs up to the 3rd floor and back (no elevator).
    • In Linderhof castle you have to walk only approx. two times 10 minutes (relatively flat) and in the 30 minutes tour of the castle you have to climb stairs to the first floor.
    • Each castle can be reached also with strollers, but they are not allowed during the tour of the interiors.
    • If you want to reach Neuschwanstein castle by the "breathtaking" hike through the spectacular Gorge (approx. 45 to 60 minutes) on a well-developed path (not suitable for strollers, 1/4 of the distance are stairs), suitable footwear is required (for example hiking boots). In case of unsuitable weather or during maintenance work, the path through the gorge remains closed!

    Awesome day trip, would definitely recommend!
    Ethan_H, Dec 2021
    Our family had a wonderful time with our guide, Armin. He took us to Neuschwannstein, with a few scenic stops along the way to and from the castle. Armin was very friendly and gave us some great information about Munich, King Ludwig, and the town of Oberammergau, which we visited as well. He even made us dinner reservations after our trip. Armin is a fantastic guide with a great personality. We appreciate all he did for us and would definitely recommend him to others.
    Rich experience
