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.

Neuschwanstein and Rothenburg

We had an amazing trip to Rothenburg and Neuschwanstein castle with our tour guide Thomas. It was just my husband and myself and Thomas was a wealth of knowledge and a pure delight. Thomas showed us where the locals like to hang out and made sure we got time for the best photo ops. We enjoyed every part of our day and if you go, ask for Thomas. He was great!

This was a great trip. It is about 4 hours each way there. Our group was only three people, Myself, my wife, and one other. We had Sebastian as our driver and were in a Mercedes car. We were a little worried from the previous reviews about time and being rushed. We had plenty of time. We stopped at Rothenberg on the way to the castle. I liked this better than after. The castle has a long walk up a steep hill, not ADA friendly. There is a bus and horse option; however you still have about a 10 minute walk past where they can go. We are not ADA but thought this is good to know,

I was a single traveler looking to extend a business trip in Germany. I completely enjoyed this tour. Very knowledgeable guide on the castle and Rothenburg. I wanted a full day to see the countryside. I very much enjoyed my day and glad I booked this trip. Keep in mind it is all day, 8:30 am to 10 pm.

Tour guide issue

Our tour guide is Sebastian. He kept saying how great he was (e.g., he was the best tour guide, he was so intelligent, he did us flavors, he was so fit ...), but didn't give much tour guide (such as information of the attraction) at all. We were basically on our own to look for where to go at both Rothenburg and Neuschwanstein Castle. He changed our itinerary and schedule without explanation.

Rothenburg & Newuschwanstien

Guide was personable and friendly. Enjoyed the trip. Wish the timeline could have given us more time in Rothenburg. But know it couldn't be. Love the visit in a beautiful area of Germany. The Castle was too short of tour, I have been there before and wish we could have seen the ball room. The kitchen was a plus. Not your fault, the weather was hot, hot, hot. Had a good time.

Neuschwanstein Castle and Rothenburg Day Trip

Though a bit pricey and hectic (covering two attractions), the trip was overall excellent. The air conditioned car was very good and the guide cum driver, Thomas Heep, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Highly recommended if you are short of time and want to fit in the maximum on a day. Wish this company operated in the Black Forest area also where there is a dearth of such professional operators.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY AT ALL

Worst tour I have ever taken. First off, Million, our tour guide did not introduce himself to us (we had to ask halfway through the trip) and literally did not speak the entire time. It was a 4.5 hour car ride to the castle and he literally said NOTHING - no information about where we were going, history about places we were going to, or the schedule of the trip (not even how long the drive was.) It was terrible. We sat in the car for over 10 hours!!!! And we only got about ONE HOUR at the castle and ONE HOUR at Rothenburg. It was literally the biggest waste of my money. Places were cool but it was a shame you paid all that money to only stay there for an hour at each place. I would not call this a tour. Wish i could get my money back. Do yourself a favor, save some money and do not book this tour.

Great trip - Expensive but worth the $$$

Would recommend this trip and company. The driver/guide - Thomas Heep - is a walking encyclopedia of information who also drives very safely. Trip from Frankfurt is a bit long as it covers two locations but the driver/car combination made it seem short. The castle was magical while the town has a lot of character. Wish this company also operated in the Black Forest area as there is a dearth of good operators there.
