Full description

Travel to the magnificent castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Enjoy a delicious lunch in Hohenschwangau and take a small detour through the picturesque town of Oberammergau. Choose to buy your castle tickets on the bus on the day or to buy them in advance as part of the day trip.

Board an air-conditioned bus and set off to discover the castles of Bavaria. First, visit the fairy-tale Linderhof Palace, the only castle that Ludwig II lived to see completed. Explore the castle and its grounds with your guide. Then, head to the quaint town of Oberammergau for photos and shopping.

Next, stop at Hohenschwangau Castle, Ludwig's childhood home, for lunch (not included) before moving on to Neuschwanstein Castle, nestled in the foothills of the Alps. Admire one of the most impressive sights in Germany and immerse yourself in the fairy-tale world of Ludwig II for the afternoon.

Hana E was our guide and was absolutely charming - she provided us with a lot of information about Ludwig II (who we knew nothing about before the tour) but in such a way as to leave us wanting to find out more afterwards. The interior of Linderhof was incredible, while we would have enjoyed browsing in the shops in Oberammergau if it hadn't been for the fact that it was a Sunday and they were closed. Only minor quibble was being steered towards the pricy hotel for lunch but there was nothing to stop us from making our own arrangements. A long day but well worth it!

Gerda, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly! She did a great job leading the tour. All the places were really beautiful and we got everywhere on time thanks to the good and careful driving of Gordon, our bus driver! I love that we had so much time at Neuschwanstein and Schwangau.

Altogether it was a nice experience with great tour guide and comfortable transportation. The sights very were nice and had all info to understand what we were about to see. I would recommend it to anyone as it is the perfect day trip from Munich. The only slight disappointment is the fact that the castle cannot be discovered from all viewpoints during the winter season and this info was not available before. But apart from this highly recommended trip.
