From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

1. From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

Discover one of Bavaria's most scenic landscapes on this tour from Munich by train and van. Marvel at the stature and delicate architecture of Neuschwanstein Castle standing proud atop a hill and surrounded by forested mountains. 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. It’s not just about the castle – it’s also about its wonderful location. You will go to the best vantage points and explore the lake. If time and weather permits, you can even enjoy a swim. 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.

The trip was wonderful. The castle is beautiful with breathtaking views. Our guide Michelle was wonderful. Only the bus did not have a good air-conditioning and it was very warm and uncomfortable inside . As it is a long journey I request the radius tours to look into the matter.

Our family thought today was wonderful. we were engaged by Michelle's easy going story telling in the bus ride there and back. The organisation was excellent and we got to see everything we wanted. Thanks to our bus driver who did a superb job! The Coupar family.

Our guide Steven is a great guide, really nice, incredibly knowledgable and gave us a fantastic day in Neuschwanstein castle.

We were traveling with Amir. More passion, more knowledge, more feeling is not possible. Respect. Every euro was worth it.

The bed guide ever !!!! Top good imaginations!!!👍👍😊
