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 14 euros (per adult ) is payable direct in the tour office where you check in for the tour. 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 bus or 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.

Neuschwanstein Castle was the highlight of our trip! It was a dream come true for me...something that has been on my bucket list for years. Dan and Thomas were our tour guides and they were awesome! We split into 2 groups of 20 which was a perfect number for each group. They were extremely knowledgeable with the history of the castle. I am a very slow walker and I told them before we hiked up the steep hill. They gave the option of taking the carriage, but I opted to walk later regretting it. They took numerous stops along the way and filled everyone in on more history as we all caught or breath. The last bit was the hardest for me, but Dan always made sure I was not forgotten even when I had to lag behind a little. We tipped him at the end of the tour but most people walked away and didn't even thank them. Please, please be considerate of your guides and at least thank them if not give them a little tip. I would highly recommend this trip and this company. If I ever get the chance to go again, I would use this company and request these 2 tour guides. Thank you so much!

A very good trip. Worth the price. Our guide Annie was excellent. Just be aware of the rather long walk up to the castle.

Amazing experience to visit this place. Again, the guide was wonderful. The train journey, the bus and then up to the castle. the castle is interesting, but definitely more magical to see from a distance. All in all, a very exciting visit.
