Traveler Tips

It's about a 30 minute walk up hill to get to the entrance of the castle so wear your hiking shoes!
Make sure you have comfortable walking shoes as there is a lot of walking even if you do take the bus up the mountain!
Have lunch first because you won't be able to later.

Lovely day trip would highly recommend
Jane_W, May 2022
Had a lovely day made more enjoyable by our excellent tour guide Marcus. Both castles were well worth seeing and the history was very interesting. Had a lovely lunch in the Mueller hotel in Hohenschwangau which has been recommended by Marcus- here we got to sample the delicious white asparagus. It was quite a steep walk up to Neuschwanstein castle so would recommend the shuttle bus.
Great tour

Elisabeth was our guide for the day and she was FANTASTIC! She had so much knowledge which she shared with us-this was great as you are engaged and listening-really wanting to hear the history of the palaces and region. I can’t recommend this tour enough-i would do it again!
Fantastic tour

Our tour guide Elizabeth and our driver Wolfgang are so sweet and kind. The tour is fantastic, I highly recommend this tour, beautiful scenery. Words can’t describe the beauty of the castle and the mystery of prince Ludwig II.

Ursula_B, May 2022
It was a perfect day for this visit. The weather was great and our tour guide Elisabeth and bus driver Wolfgang were very nice. Elisabeth gave us a lot of information on Linderhof and Neuschwanstein. This was my granddaughter’s first time to see these beautiful castles and she really enjoyed it. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Munich and wants to see Ludwig’s castles.
Two castles, long day
Frank_F, May 2022
It’s a long day. We left at 820 and returned at 1845. Linderhof castle is beautiful and more time should be spent there. Very little time to explore gardens. Neuschwanstein is a rushed through tour with not enough time and too many people crowded in. Our tour guide, Gerda, was excellent. The castle tours themselves are a local guide (Linderhof) excellent and an audio guide at Neuschwanstein.
Very thankful to the tour...

Great experience
Alia_A, May 2022
The guide was informative and helpful, it was a wonderful trip! My only comment would be that it felt a bit rushed at times. I would’ve liked to have more leisurely time.
