  • Rail Tour
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city


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.

This is definitely the must do when in Germany . The castle is great but the scenery is mesmerizing ., and the best part of the tour was our tour guides Chris and Danny . They really brought the story behind the castle alive and made it all the more relevant .

My husband were originally going to do the trip on our own, but there were no more castle tickets available online. We booked this tour instead and were able to tour the castle! There wasn’t too much time in the city, but we still were able to grab a quick bite and wander around a little. The tour guide Ali was very knowledgeable and seeing the castle was fantastic.

We had a great day trip, about 1 hour 40 mins coach drive . Jax ,our guide, really made the visit with his knowledge of the castle plus some helpful tips for first time visitors re places to eat/visit in Munich on way back.Need trainers for hill walk to castle, but easy, well paced., could push a buggy easily.Worth picking up a roll for lunch before trip so can look round more. The castle is well worth going in to see but our castle guide rushed us round so couldn't stop to really look well, kept going on about the next group behind us.She seemed very disinterested but still worth doing as is amazing inside. Jax suggested trying the sweet dumpling/doughnut type delicacy at the stand outside the castle -they were superb!! You must try them! The glauwein was good too! Beautiful lake nearby which Jax showed us. Had a great time, thanks Jax!

Everything inside and outside of the castle is amazing. We were very luck to have a very good weather, blue skies and snow scene, very beautiful. The castle is equally mesmerising, definitely worth the 4 hours journey to and fro from Munich HBF.
