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.

This was the highlight of my trip to Munich! Our tour guide ( I can’t remember his name but he was from New Zealand) was such a great storyteller and also did a fantastic job of giving our group the different options of getting to the castle. It is true that you can go to the castle on your own but I highly recommend taking a tour so you get the full story of King Ludwig II because the tour you get inside the castle is very lackluster they only explain the contents of the castle. We were taken on the bus and was very comfy!

The one thing I’ll say is because of some of the reviews I ended up wearing shoes for hiking instead of warmth and regretted it. Even the steep option wasn’t all that steep (to me) and was paved enough that you could do it in any shoe. I wound up very cold (it’s November) and thinking of my warm UGG boots I should’ve worn instead.

There is a reason why the tour has so many good reviews, I highly recommend it!

We were a Group of 4. We enjoyed our Guide Hiem. He was terrific! The castle tour and train trip were fabulous! Great find!

Dan the man was a great guide. Full of facts that he delivered in a fun, engaging way. The bus ride from Munich is through some lovely countryside. The town itself is small, but charming, with a beautiful lake.You have the option of taking a bus or horse drawn carriage up to the castle (at your own expense.) The castle is on a mountain top so the walk up is STEEP, about 2 miles, and takes 45-55 minutes. Dan does not rush the group and stops along the way to provide some commentary. If you are a Disney fan, know that this castle was Walt Disney's inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty castle at Disneyland. Well worth the visit.

First I'd like to thank to tour company. we had a schedule issue and they were great working to find ways to get us back to Munich before the group would. The train ride back was fun.

The tour started on a very nice bus as there were more people than a train ride would handle well.

Our host shared fun and interesting information along the way making the drive enjoyable.

The day was overcast but the views were still wonderful. The hiking trails and more make this a nice area to spend an entire day.

One thing to be aware of (not the tour company's fault) is the shops and food near the castle are ridiculously expensive and you basically have no choice. Bring some snacks and drinks before leaving Munich.

If you end up traveling by train instead of bus, the train station at the castle end has a great little bistro, delicious pastries and sandwiches, and there is a quick-mart all at very reasonable prices.

We skipped the interior tour and based on feedback from those that went in, we were glad we spent more time walking the grounds and being able to see both castles. Yes, the caste he grew up in as a boy is just a short walk and easy to visit on the same trip.

Stevo and Jax were great guides! We really didn't expect to get much information on ride from Munich to Neuschwanstein but we were pleasantly surprised with their knowledge about Munich and the Castle, and the Castle area. Our only comment/concern is this is advertised as a small group day trip. The group or 50 and we had 2 guides to 25 for each. Still not a small group. We enjoyed ourselves and would go back use this company again.
