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.

A brilliant tour! A very long day but worth it to see an amazing castle. Worth outlining that if it is snowing or likely to be, wear some decent shoes some of our group didn't as if the bus isnt running you'll have a 30 minute walk to the castle totally worth it! Our guide Petra had a great grasp of English and had a great insight into the history of the monarchy and the castle and provided pictures and information whilst on the train journey to Fussen. Well recommended tour.

This castle is a Do Not Miss! We went Dec 30th and it was no small-group tour, but because of the holiday I guess it's understandable. While on the train our guide British but forgot his name was super in going up and down speaking to everyone and beginning the story of the castle.
You get on a bus from the train and take a short ride through the really charming town and get off at the foothills of the castle.
Then you walk and walk and walk going up a very winding but beautiful road to the top. We stopped at a cute restaurant half way up and had a brat which was delish!
The tour of the castle is given by a castle guide, not Viator's guide. It was still great.
It's a fantastic story and a really fun day trip.
Great gift shops too.

Austin from Radius Tours was the best tour guide we've ever had. We'd even consider flying him all over the world to lead us on other tours. I highly recommend requesting him. He may the tour funny, and interesting. The castle itself was amazing, too!

After three weeks of seeing many many castles, this trip was worth it. Our tour guide Kevin was great, keeping us amused along the way. The train trip was around two hours each way but the scenery was worth it in December and the doughnuts!
