Full description
Spend a day in picturesque Bavaria, enjoying a drive on the Romantic Road in the Bavarian Alps. On the way to the fairy tale castle of Neuschwanstein you’ll pass through old, quaint Bavarian villages and scenic countryside. When you reach Neuschwanstein you’ll be taken on a guided tour of the castle, which was built in the 19th century in the Romanesque Revival style. The palace sits on a craggy hill commanding views of the village of Hohenschwangau below. From the Marienbridge you’ll have breathtaking views of the castle. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a royal retreat and in honor of Richard Wagner, the composer. After the death of Ludwig II, the palace was opened to the public in 1886, and now hosts more than 1.3 million visitors each year. Neuschwanstein has appeared in numerous movies and it was also used as a model for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland. You’ll walk through a lovely gorge featuring cascades and waterfalls. On the way back you’ll stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Church of Wieskirch built in the 17th century. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit a Bavarian cheese farm, where you can get a cheese and sausage platter with fresh baked bread. There are spectacular, 360-degree mountain view to enjoy here as well.

Mario was amazing! Super friendly and provided a ton of interesting information. The day moved at a great pace with plenty of stops for restrooms, food, and site seeing. Mario and his team were able to obtain tickets for the castle for our group even when the castle's website was sold out for the day. The tour was great. Well-paced, tour available in many languages.

Two days before the activity, we contacted the company Pure Bavária by email, which promptly replied confirming the time and place for the meeting. We had a great trip, as planned we stopped to visit a beautiful church on the way to and on the way back, we had lunch at the farm. Great cheeses and wine. To my surprise Armin speaks Portuguese and knows part of Brazil well. An amazing experience.

Mario was awesome! We would definitely do this tour again. The 2 churches we stopped at were great and the farm was closed but he offered to take us to the cheese store and we were in heaven. They made us a meat and cheese plate served with wine...so good! The tour was as described and better than expected.
