  • From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

    Located 2 hours from Munich, the enchanting old-world town of Füssen lies in the foot hills 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.

  • Munich: City Tour & FC Bayern Munich Soccer Arena Tour

    5. Munich: City Tour & FC Bayern Munich Soccer Arena Tour

    On this football tour, see the most important sights of Munich and visit the training-grounds of FC Bayern München and the most modern stadium in Europe, the Allianz Arena. First, embark on a bus tour through the city of Munich, where you learn about the most important sights of the city. Afterwards, you will visit the home of one of the most popular football clubs in the world. The Allianz Arena, the temple of football in the north of Munich, is the third home of the long-standing football club Bayern München – after the Grünwalder and Olympic Stadiums – and certainly the most spectacular. After the stadium tour, enjoy the opportunity to immerse yourself in the FC Bayern Museum, an exhibition exploring the history of the championship record-holders. Discover cups, players and curiosities dating back over 110 years to the foundation of the club.

    The really good: The guide at the Arena was excellent. The poor: Security wouldn't let us into the practice grounds so we spent most of that half hour negotiating with him. Finally we were let in five at a time. Pretty poor. Bus said it would leave at 1.30pm which it promptly did in a very German manner. However the tour had just ended and many of us didn't have time to catch the bus so had to Uber back into the city.
