Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Linderhof, Germany

Departing Munich, visit the smallest of three royal castles, Linderhof, which was built by King Ludwig II during the 19th century as a hunting lodge. Built in French Rococo style, the castle has a Moorish pavilion which can be visited during your one hour stay. You have the option to join a guided tour of the interior of Linderhof.

After departing Linderhof, you will have a short shopping stop in Oberammergau, world-famous for its woodcarvers, richly painted houses (Luftl-paintings) and Passion Play.

On the approach to Neuschwanstein, it will quickly become clear as to why this magnificent neo-Romanesque style castle is the most well known castle in the world. It appears through the mist like something out of a fairytale, and you will not be surprised to hear that the man who conceived its design - King Ludwig II, was considered quite eccentric. If it all seems very familiar, it may be because the castle was the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

You will stop in Hohenschwangau, a small town at the feet of the castle, where you'll have 4 hours at disposal for lunch and to explore the grounds of Neuschwanstein. You'll also have the option of joining a guided tour of the interior of the castles if you wish.

My family of 5 had an enjoyable day tour and the tour guide a lady was very efficient and good with her commentaries throughout the journey. We learnt a lot about King Ludwig II and his family history and could associate it with the castles that we saw. The castles were magnificent. It's so beautiful in the hills of Bavaria. Journey is a bit long but worth it.
