  • 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.

This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Aiden was fantastic, he was informative and entertaining. We also had plenty of time to see the castle and the lake. This is a place you must see.

We really enjoyed our day tour to Neuschwanstein Castle! Our guide, Aidan, was great and made the group tour fun and informative. From logistics of train transfers to meeting locations, he was organized and on top of everything, which made the whole day go smoothly. Additionally, he provided entertaining stories about the history of the castle and helped us get the most out of our experience there. I learned a lot about Bavarian history and have already done some additional research on my own. It's such an interesting and fascinating region! The castle is incredible and well worth the full day trek from Munich. It was one of our favorite parts of our trip! Aidan was also helpful with providing restaurant recommendations and general info about Munich, which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend Radius Tours and the Neuschwanstein Castle day trip!

This was such a great tour! Our guide, Aidan, really made it for us - he was very personable and made it a point to socialize with everyone. He was full of great information that we would not have known if we'd gone to the castle alone. He told us a ton of cool history about King Ludwig II and the area. Travel between the train and bus was seamless, the town, lake, and castle were beautiful. There was a nice but steep walk up to the castle, with a cute shop to buy fresh donuts halfway up the hill. The castle tour itself only took about 20 minutes, but the real joy was seeing the beautiful views from the bridges and mountains.
