Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Cover the highlights of Bavaria in two different countries—all for the same price—on this double-duty day trip.
Board the coach in central Frankfurt for a 4-hour journey south to Füssen. Travel along the famous Romantic Road to one of Germany’s most popular attractions, Neuschwanstein Castle. 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 and it’s one of the most popular of all the castles or palaces in Europe, drawing 1.4 million visitors each year. 

Skip the typically long lines to get inside and enjoy a narrated walking tour of this medieval masterpiece (multilingual audio guide available). Explore rooms like Minstrel’s Hall, the Byzantine Throne Room and many more. Learn about the castle’s architect, King Ludwig II of Bavaria, and explore the terraces, grounds and gardens outside as well.

After the tour, shop for souvenirs, grab lunch (own expense) and take photos against the stunning backdrop of the Bavarian mountains.

Then it’s a 3-hour drive north to the picturesque town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Join a walking tour and follow the guide through the town’s winding, cobbled lanes. See the half-timbered houses, the Renaissance Town Hall and the almost fairy tale appearance of the majestic town gates that welcome Rothenburg’s many visitors from near and far.

The tour ends with a return trip to Frankfurt.

If you have a chance to book a private trip for 2, please do it!! Nothing like being driven on the Autobahn in a Mercedes.

I was in Frankfurt for business and decided to take this tour at the end of my stay. It is so worth the cost and is an amazing day! Our tour guide, Thomas, was extremely knowledgable and eager to share Germany with us. We had a group of 5 in a mini-bus. Rothenburg is so worth seeing and exploring - I wish we had more time there but we had to move on to make our tour at the castle. Approaching the castle was fantastic with a view of the Alps. Unfortunately, we experienced some heavy rain the moment we arrived. But there wasn't much to do but continue forth with our plans. So though we were cold and wet and had limited ability to take photos outdoors, this was a fantastic visit.

If you do this tour - bring snacks and water Thomas did have a sandwich for us but you need to be ready if that is not a common practice and wear sturdy shoes ! and if there is any chance of rain, bring proper attire and/or an umbrella. There is a lot of walking no matter how you cut it - the bus can only take you so far on the castle grounds. It's a long day so be prepared.

Great itinerary although Rothenburg is a lovely well-preserved medieval city deserving more than an hour stop-over! The way to Neuschwanstein was way too long from Frankfurt - over 4-hour drive one-way, the drive on a German highway was a bit scary since no speed limit in some places hence up to 160 jumper hour at times!, but we had an experienced driver and guide. The walk up to the castle itself was a bit unexpected 30 min one way or so, so you better be ready for it !!

My sister, niece and I were just in Frankfurt a couple of weeks ago and the Neuschwanstein Castle was the top of our must see list! It is a bit of a drive but the time went by so fast thanks to our wonderful tour guide Jack! We stopped on the way to the beautiful Rothenburg at the Christmas Market for some shopping and pictures of the amazing architecture. On to Neuschwantein Castle which is like seeing a picture out of a fairy tale book. It is quite amazing and the village and location of the castle are equally beautiful. Since we were there in the winter there was some snow and a hike from the bottom of the drive to the top. They do have some horse drawn carriage rides to take you to the top but we walked. The actual tour of the castle isn't as long as we expected but it was well worth seeing. The whole tour would not have been near as enjoyable had we not had a wonderful guide. Jack is so knowledgeable and entertaining the trip went went by in a flash! If you are going to take this tour I highly recommend that you ask for Jack to be your guide.

This trip is not worth the cost.

We did not have the best experience. We had trouble getting to the office due to a mix up with the train. I called the office they told us to stay at the station we were at and the driver would come and get us. We were told to be at the front of the station WHICH we did. After 30 minutes I called the office again and they said the driver could not find us. I told them where we were. The driver Peterwas very upset and rude to us and it was very uncomfortable. We got to the vehicle and he was not very friendly and did not tell us much on the drive. He also did not have us introduce ourselves or the other people introduce themselves. I understand we were late however the office told us to stay where we were and we were at the place they told us to be. I also felt it was unprofessional to have the driver using his phone when he was driving. He was looking down at his phone frequently, which I think is not safe. We also were cold and he did ask if the temperature was ok we said no and he did not know how to turn to warmer it got colder and we had to help him get it turned correctly. The castle was awesome!! One of the ladies guestioned about Rothenberg and made it clean she wanted to be able to see the city and shop, we were told do not worry you will and have supper. We DID NOT get to rothenberg in time to have supper and only 2 stores were open this was very disappointing when it made it sound like we would have time in Rothenberg to do those things. For the amount of money it cost I feel we paid too much for what we got. It said we would not have to stand and waitin line we would get to go ahead of the line and we did not!! I feel we should get a refund. I have been in many Vivator trips and they have been very good! I talked my friend into doing this tour, we could of drove ourselves and bought the castle ticket and we would of been able to spend time in Rothenberg earlier and enjoyed the town.

This was a fantastic tour and I highly recommend it! Peter our tour guide was so professional and knowledgable about all the places we visited and he knew everything about everything and he was so informative. The German countryside is beautiful and our journey along the autobahn although very busy at the time was still well worth the ride! Our first stop in Rothenberg was lovely and it really is a beautiful town. We spent about an hour there which was fine by me as it still allowed us enough time to walk around and explore the town. The architecture and the well kept buildings are a must see! The castle was well maintained and the architecture and style of the building and everything with in is really quite amazing! I wanted to see a castle and Im glad I saw this castle! The tour was well worth it, it was a long day but all very manageable! The tour was well organised and again I cannot reiterate the professionalism and knowledge of our tour guide Peter! If he is guiding your tour you will be treated well! I would happily do another tour with him!

This was an amazing day spent visiting these two MUST SEE locations!. Peter, our guide, was phenomenal and shared all his knowledge about the locations and where to get the best pictures! While it was a long day, it was a wonderful day. Many thanks to Peter!

It was a fantastic trip, in a private car. Our driver, Peter, was outstanding. He was informative, well versed on the area, and attentive to all comforts of a long tour.
