On arrival, enjoy the splendor of the village of Hohenschwangau, and continue to Neuschwanstein's neighboring castle. Hear about the famous legend of Lohengrin as you look over the Alpsee.
A short climb up to the Marienbrücke reveals picture-perfect views of the 19th-Century, neo-romantic masterpiece, as well as the gorge beneath. From the courtyard, listen as your guide tells the story of the budget-busting, problematic construction of Neuschwanstein Castle. Whether you choose to take the 45-minute tour inside the castle, or decide to invest the time and money in one of the quintessentially Bavarian beer gardens, while the guide describes the lavish castle interior, the tour will leave you wanting for nothing in the epic story of Neuschwanstein Castle and “Mad King Ludwig II.”
Hear about the life and passions of Ludwig and discover the story behind his mysterious death. You will also enjoy stunning views of the Bavarian countryside and Alps, the Marienbrücke Bridge, the Swan King, Hohenschwangau Castle, Pöllath Waterfall and Gorge, and much more. If the weather is particularly good, there will also be the chance to take a dip in the Alpsee lake, so bring your swimming things.
On the journey back to Munich, the tour will stop at magical Füssen, home to fascinating rulers and Kings throughout the centuries. As you explore this medieval town, your tour guide will tell you about its history of festivals and lavish celebrations.
