Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city

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.

I think this is the easiest way to visit the two castels of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof on a day trip from Munich. I would have loved 10 minutes more for the Linderhof gardens but the time we had to visit Neuschwanstein and the surrounding area was enough.

Excellent tour. Excellent bus driver. Marcus, our tour guide was excellent and extremely well informed about the history of the castles as well as German history. Interspersed with humor it was very enjoyable. Could have been more time for lunch before or after climbing up to Neuschwanstein Castle, but hard to fit it all in. Probably a half hour less at Linderhof.

This was even more majestic a view in person than any photo could provide. The tour was fun and engaging. I would have liked a little more time and ability to tour through neuschwanstein a little more. It was a very controlled tour and there is much more of the castle you can’t see due to the restrictions. However, I would still recommend the tour!

Our tour guide, Christine, was excellent. The ride was comfortable. After about a two hour ride, you get to Linderhof castle. Then you visit the historic town of Oberammergau. I highy recommend to buy your souvenirs here. Then you head of to Neuschwanstein castle. Here you grab a quick lunch then head on to a 45 minute walk (incline) towards the castle. You can catch a horse driven carriage to take you two-thirds of the distance for 7 euros, but you still have to walk the rest of the way. Prepare an extra 25 euros cash for entrance tickets for the castle. This is not included in the tour price.

fantastic. The interior is as beautiful as exterior. Highly recommended.

View from the window of Neuschwanstein

This is the only look of this lake you see on the tour, because the guide puts heavy pressure for you not to take the bus to the Marien Bridge. It is from the bridge that you see most of the pictures of this castle and the lake.
