  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city


What You Can Expect

This glorious folly was built in the 19th century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by myth and who himself became a legend. The shimmering white towers of the castle among the clouds are instantly recognizable to many and is the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, and is also famous as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Castle. To visit it is to step inside a fairy tale.

Your guide will tell the engaging story of King Ludwig's renowned and tragic reign, of his turbulent times, and of the obsession that drove him to build his fantasy castle in the mountains and ultimately destroyed him. Take an exclusive internal tour of the king's private chambers with a specialist castle guide.

Entrance fees to the Neuschwanstein Castle are not included. A supplement of 12 euros (per person) is payable direct. This guided tour includes advance booking so you can skip long lines and gain quick access to the Neuschwanstein Castle. Don't waste time waiting in lines on vacation!

The journey to Neuschwanstein takes approximately 2 hours by train. Germany's rail system is world renown and this journey to the Alps is no exception. Offering spectacular views, trains are clean, comfortable and equipped with washrooms. Feel free to walk around and chat to your fellow travellers as well as your guide, who can answer any questions about Munich and Bavaria.

Absolutely loved this tour with our guide, Chris! He was so knowledgeable, intelligent, and funny, yet professional and respectful to everyone. One can see how he's passionate about his work and respects German history and culture. I was traveling solo, but the group was big about 15 to 20 people from what I recall. We definitely all had seats on the roundtrip trains, though, so not one problem. Very comfortable and scenic trip. And it wasn't tiring at all because we opted for the bus to take us up to the castle. Don't bother walking that! You can save that energy for the walk downhill, which is quite a stretch. Trust me, bc I was the one in the tour group who almost delayed everyone not once, but twice haha. Chris and the group laughed with me so it's all good : So happy I took this tour because honestly Chris really made it fun and worthwhile. Definitely opt him as a guide!

The castle was beautiful like a dream. The inside was very majestic and there was opportunity to take nice pictures of the castle.

Suzanne was an amazing tour guide. She was especially kind to me (being 6 months pregnant) and also to an elderly woman on our tour; she was continously searching for ways to ensure everyone was well taken care of. Lovely tour, the hike was not nearly as bad as reviews made it seem!!!

Great memorable trip. The weather is important to be able to see the fabulous views. Roland was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Organisationally the short bus trip back down had unpredictable timing leaving us worried. Recommend the bus up but suggest walking back down.
