Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Munich Central Station, 80335 Munich, Bavaria Germany

Meet your guide at the Radius Tours office in Arnulfstrasse, opposite tracks 32-34 in Munich's Central Station. Your day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle starts with an approximate 2-hour train journey from Munich through the German countryside.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Schloss Neuschwanstein, Neuschwansteinstrasse 20, 87645 Hohenschwangau, Bavaria Germany

Schloss Neuschwanstein, often known as Germany’s "Cinderella castle," was actually the inspiration for a different Disney story, the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ castle at Disneyland.
The entrance fee to the castle is not included (you can pay on the day), but by booking this tour in advance, you’ll receive skip-the-line access to Neuschwanstein so you won’t waste time standing in the ticket queue.

Once inside the enchanting structure, take a tour with a guide, who shares fascinating stories about the reclusive Bavarian king who commissioned a new residence in the 19th century. Thought to be mad, King Ludwig II desired a fantasy castle built in the mountains, an obsessive feat that was still incomplete when he died. Visit the best vantage points for views and photo ops of the castle’s towers, interiors and surrounding scenery such as the lake, gorge and equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle.

Duration: 5 hours

It was super easy to find our tour operator and take the train the Neushwanstein. Aileen was extremely well informed on the history of the castle and even provided pictures of the people and places she was discussing. Great tour.

What a fantastic day. We were fortunate enough to have blue skies, snow on the ground and leaves on the trees surrounding the spectacular Neuschwanstein Castle. Our tour guide Melanie was great. It was her first tour for Neuschwanstein Castle but she was informative and engaging. There is plenty of time to do your own thing before heading up to the Castle. The tour guides organised the tickets and once you've completed the castle tour, you again have plenty of free time before having to be back down the bottom to meet the bus. A walk to the viewing bridge is a must. Provides a wonderful view of the castle. Highly recommended.

Let me start out by saying our tour guide Stevo was fantastic! He was very well informed and answered all of the questions. He seriously had knew world history.
The Trip was easy and lovely. It gave us a taste of German countryside. The Castle itself is wonderful. All in all the tour was very very nice.

The weather was a bit cold and damp, but this is still a wonderful tour. Due to the recent rains, there were trains that got delayed or canceled, so I am glad we booked through La Vacanza Travel -- had we tried to navigate the train cancellations on our own, it could have been disastrous. Tour guide, Timmy, was phenomenal. He was well-versed in the history of King Ludwig and the castle and quite adept had managing train changes and an unpleasant person who happened to be on our train. If you take this tour, opt for the carriage ride up to the castle as it is a long, steep walk (this is paid in cash at the bottom of the hill upon arrival in Neuschwanstein - I think it was 7 Euros per person). You can still get exercise by walking from the castle to the bridge that gives the best vantage point for photos.
