Full description

Spend a day in picturesque Bavaria with this van tour from Munich. Spend the day enjoying a drive on the Romantic Road in the Bavarian Alps. On the way to the 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 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 purchase an optional cheese and sausage platter with freshly baked bread. Enjoy the spectacular, 360-degree mountain views from the farm.

Mario was an incredible tour guide! We saw two historic churches, the cheese and meats for lunch were delicious alongside what was probably one of the best cakes I’ve ever had in my life — the whole tour was fun and informative, we never felt rushed, and the castle was of course really impressive. Going by van also meant we beat all of the crowds - Mario had a lot of great advice along the way - and we had a really nice day!

Mario was a fantastic tour guide and this tour was perfect for our group! We specifically were wanting to see the Church of Wies and Neuschwanstein and this was the only tour we could find that did that. I loved that the tour was a small group so we could ask all the questions we wanted of our knowledgeable guide. Mario kept us on schedule without making us feel rushed at all. The stops at the church in Rotenburg and the cheese farm were ones I wouldn’t have known to make myself and our family loved them! Be sure to try some of the local pie/cake at the cheese farm for dessert! The apple pie is to die for. Thank you for a great tour, Mario!

It was the perfect day out. Picked up in a very comfortable van, 1st class guide Arman who was so informative and interesting, the Bavarian villages and a cheese farm made it an unforgettable day. The highlight of course Neuschwanstrin Castle. It would have to be the most beautiful castle in the world. Every moment was special.
