What You Can Expect

Neuschwanstein Castle Small-Group Day Tour from Munich

Neuschwanstein Castle Small-Group Day Tour from Munich

Your day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle starts with the approximate 2-hour train journey from Munich through the German countryside. The entrance fee to the castle is not included (you can pay on the day), but by booking this tour in advance, you’ll receive skip-the-line access to Neuschwanstein so you won’t waste time standing in the ticket queue.

Once inside the enchanting structure, take a tour with a guide, who shares fascinating stories about the reclusive Bavarian king who commissioned a new residence in the 19th century. Thought to be mad, King Ludwig II desired a fantasy castle built in the mountains, an obsessive feat that was still incomplete when he died. Visit the best vantage points for views and photo ops of the castle’s towers, interiors and surrounding scenery such as the lake, gorge and equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle.

Your tour ends with the 2-hour ride back to Munich. Offering great views, the trains are clean, comfortable and equipped with washrooms. You may walk around to talk with your fellow travelers and your guide, who can answer any questions you may have about Munich and Bavaria.

Great trip! Our guide, Patrick, shared with us his passion for history and by the time we got to the castle we knew all the important facts and more about the site, the king and family, the Bavière and surroundings. Very interesting. Thank you Patrick! MJ Gautreau. Québec Canada

While you could do this trip yourself, it was nice to have a guide to get us there and tell us a bit of a story along the way. Hein was an excellent guide and we enjoyed the trip a lot.

Dani was a great guide! She had an engaging way with her group and went out of her way to make sure we had the best experience--including insights on which donut stand to visit on the way up to the castle! She shared the history of the castle and gave us important information about King Ludwig. The snowy landscape and the beautiful Alps made us want to stay there forever!

Dani was fantastic - couldn't have been more helpful. The area the castle is in, Fussen, would b amazing to stay in for a night or two. The great thing about this tour is that tickets to the castle itself are organised for you. Only 1600 visitors on day we went Dec 20, sometimes 6000!
