Experience the best of Bavaria on this guided, full-day sightseeing tour from Füssen. Explore and tour two of King Ludwig II’s palaces — Linderhof Castle, inspired by the king’s visits to the Palace of Versailles in France, and his palace of retreat, Neuschwanstein Castle, one of Germany’s most popular attractions. Then visit the picturesque villages of Hohenschwangau and Oberammergau, stopping at famous Bavarian attractions like Wieskirche, an oval rococo pilgrimage church on the Romantic Road. Transportation and all entrance fees are included.
  • Day trip from Füssen to Neuschwanstein Castle and Linderhof Castle
  • Travel through the scenic Bavarian countryside and stop to admire the views from Marienbrücke
  • Explore Neuschwanstein Castle with an expert guide and learn of King Ludwig II
  • Visit the Bavarian villages of Hohenschwangau and Oberammergau
  • Take a tour of Linderhof Castle, visiting sites like the Hall of Mirrors and Venus Grotto
This Bavarian sightseeing adventure begins at Füssen station. Meet and greet the tour guide and hop on board the luxury coach. It’s a quick 10-minute drive to Neuschwanstein Castle. Along the way, stop at Marienbrücke, a 19th-century crossing that overlooks the Pöllat Gorge, for a breathtaking view of the castle.
Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace nestled on top of a rugged hill high above the village of Hohenschwangau, near Füssen, in southwest Bavaria. This stunning fairy tale palace was the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle and it’s one of the most popular of all the castles or palaces in Europe, drawing 1.4 million visitors each year. 
Enjoy a walking tour of this medieval masterpiece. Explore rooms like Minstrel’s Hall, the Byzantine Throne Room and many more. Learn about the castle’s architect, King Ludwig II, and explore the terraces, grounds and gardens outside as well.
After touring the castle, travel to the nearby village of Hohenschwangau to enjoy some free time. Find a restaurant for lunch (own expense) or take a leisurely stroll around scenic Lake Alpsee.
Back in the coach, begin the 1-hour journey to Linderhof Castle in Ettal. Along the way, travel along the Romantic Road and stop to see the popular Wies Church and the village of Oberammergau, where the famous Passion Play is held once every 10 years.
Finally, enjoy a self-guided tour at Linderhof Castle. Linderhof was inspired by King Ludwig’s visits to the Palace of Versailles in France. It is the smallest of the three palaces built by the king and the only one which he lived to see completed. Even so, the palace and surrounding park together are one of the most artistic and stylistically complex ensembles of the 19th century — and a sight to behold.
The tour ends with a return trip to Füssen.

Great tour. Amir, our tour guide was very informative and even took us to Garmisch-Partenkirchen The Church in the Meadow which was not included in the tour.

Our trip to see all three castles was everything we hoped! We even stopped in Oberammergau, the place that has the Passion Play for a visit and gelato. Thank you European Castles Tours. Fredrico you were the best guide. It was wonderful!

We had a wonderful experience. There were only three couples plus our excellent guide Astrid; so it was like a private tour. Astrid was very knowledgeable, being from the area, and was most helpful, offering advice regarding the rest of our trip plans. I would love to go on another of her guided tours one day. Highly recommend this guided tour. We got in and out of the castles quickly and avoided the confusion of getting tickets, parking, etc. Also, the carriage ride was a pleasant experience. It was also nice having a stop at the beautiful church and having shopping time in Oberammergau. Although I am 60 years old and not in the best of shape, there was not too much walking for me. Just very brief stretches of challenging walk or stair climbing. All in all, a very good day.

Peter was a fantastic guide. He helped us cut through all the effort and downside to seeing these big heavily toured sites, and made us feel like we were the only ones there! His low key manner, humor, and excellent knowledge made him the perfect companion for a full day tour. Highly recommend using a tour guide at this location...and especially this one!

This was my 4th trip to Germany since 1987, but the first time I went on any kind of tour. I have to say that I wish I had done a tour before, especially one with Peter and Franz, the tour guides. They were great!

My wife and I were traveling with my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. We thought our Viator Tour was right at the top of our visit.

If I could make one suggestion, it would be nice to have some identifying tag for the members of the tour. The guides had to search for members of the tour several times during the day.

Vielen dank for a great tour!

Our guide Peter was very knowledgable, very flexible and took very good care of us. When the weather was not cooperating, he added on a wonderful mountain tour to make sure that we got the most out of our trip. I wished we had packed him when we went to Salzburg!
