See the sprawling valley from the foot of the castle walls and learn about its history from your guide along a walking tour of the grounds. Located 2 hours from Munich, the enchanting old-world town of Füssen lies in the foothills of the Alps, framed by one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the world. Towering far above the village, seemingly sculpted out of the very mountains that rise magnificently to the heavens, is a sight made from the stuff of dreams: the fabulous and ethereal Neuschwanstein Castle. This glorious folly was built in the 19th-Century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by mythology and who himself became a legend. The shimmering white towers of the castle among the clouds are instantly recognizable to many who haven’t ever heard the name Neuschwanstein. It is the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle and is famous the world over as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang castle. To visit it is to step inside a fairy tale. On this full-day tour from Munich, your guide will take you by train or bus and accompany you uphill to the castle’s lofty perch, where it sits gleaming above a spectacular panorama of mountains, lakes, and valleys.

Get postcard-perfect views of the equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle, the waterfall gorge, and the stunning Marienbrücke Bridge, suspended high above it all. While you are marveling at the beauty, your guide will tell you the engaging story of King Ludwig’s renowned and tragic reign, his turbulent times, and of the obsession that drove him to build his fantasy castle in the mountains that ultimately destroyed him. If you choose to purchase a ticket on the day, skip the long lines for the separate internal tour of the king’s private chambers by a specialist castle guide. The tour is the most practical way to admire this amazing fantasy world.

We had an amazing time. Our guide was excellent! We learned about where to eat, drink, sightsee, and have coffee! We had about 3 hours to explore Salzburg and then moved on to the bext destination. I definitely think 3 hours is more than enough to explore Salzburg.

Wonderful bus ride. Makes a short side trip thru the village of Oberammergau. Royal castles are quite impressive. Make sure you allow time to walk on the Marion Bruce to take photos. Snacks, water, and beer available with the Premium Tour.

Our guide, Aileen was very informative about the history and stories of the castle and the family. She also answered many questions concerning Munich. She also talked to each personally.

Amazing day. We got lucky with the weather. Experience of the two castles were surreal. Our guide was amazing!

Aileen was a wonderful guide and made the whole visit very easy and meaningful.
