The enchanting old-world town of Fussen lies in the foot hills of the Alps, framed by one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the world. Traveling with your small group guided tour from Munich, you'll tour the ethereal Neuschwanstein Castle, be taken to the best vantage points; the lake, the postcard-perfect aerial view of the equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle and to the waterfall gorge.

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.

Was a fantastic way to see Neuschwanstein Castle and the surrounds. Our guide Stephanie was very good. Would highly recommend even to the seasoned traveller.

I recently went on this tour to Neuschwanstein castle and it was the highlight of my trip to Munich! I snowed in the morning before our arrival, so when we got there it was covered in snow, and so beautiful. Our guides, Anna and Veronica, kept us interested on the bus ride with history and facts about the castle and the villages we passed through on the drive. Anna led my half of the group up the path to the castle; even with the cold and snow she was good natured and knew so much about the history of the castle and the area. It was really interesting to hear the whole backstory of King Ludwig and then connect that story to all of the details on the inside of the castle. The actual tour inside the castle is pretty short, so I was really pleased with the in depth history and details we got from Anna on our walk up to the castle. On our return ride to Munich Anna walked up and down the bus asking people if they needed any suggestions for the evening or the rest of their trip. She recommended us to a great restaurant for dinner. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great day trip out of Munich, and I can't say enough how great Anna and Veronica were as our guides!

I don't think I have been to a more scenic place, the hills, lake, castles and snow are insanely picturesque. Our tour guide was Dan "the bearded man", a friendly fella, who made a lot of effort to get to know the guests on his tour. Really into his history he gave a lot of good information about the location and German culture. Visit this place.

The one downside was that the tour was a 1hr 45 minute journey by bus, with no toilet. Which I thought was a bit short sighted considering there were kids on the tour. Something the tour operators should try to improve on. Nevertheless, a thoroughly enjoyable day, a highlight of our entire holiday.

Enjoyed the full day trip. The walk up to the castle was ok - if you are with kids better take the bus. The castle interior was exceptional - I haven't seen such a well preserved rooms - I have been to Paris and St. Petersburng! Our guide Sarah was great and answered all our questions :)

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!
