Our favorite thing we did on our vacation!! I will say it is WAY more walking intensive than we anticipated; even the guide said the walk up to Neuschwanstein could be done in 20 minutes… perhaps if you are very fit you could scale the mountain in 20 minutes :) the walking includes 40 minutes up a very steep path (usually has option of a tram, but only one way), optional 15 minute very hilly walk to a bridge, + 15 minutes back, climbing 250 steps inside the castle (about 8 floors up, with most at once), then 40 minutes back down the mountain. That also doesn’t include Linderhof castle with a 10-15 minute hilly walk to get there and 10-15 mins back. You need to be able to walk a lot for this!! We are still sore:) However, I adored this tour, getting to stop in the small town on the way was so magical. It snowed at parts too which was so cool to experience without worrying about driving in the snow! There were drinks for purchase onboard, and the 30 euro tour ticket seemed required.

It’s a lot of driving but seeing the Neuschwanstein Castle was the number one thing I wanted to do while I was in Munich last week and it was totally worth it. The guide was great and we learned a lot about Bavarian culture and history. The one thing I would change is perhaps cutting the time at the castle by an hour or so. By the time I ate lunch, walked on the Marienbrücke, walked around, and went on the castle tour, I had a lot of extra time and would’ve rather gotten to Munich a little earlier since it was such a long day. Other than that, I loved this experience. Make sure to take pictures of the castle from Marienbrücke. It was absolutely stunning!

A very easy and stress-free way of viewing the Neuschwanstein and Linderhof castles! The buses in Munich are easy to find and are comfortable for the trip. You are able to purchase tickets for the Neuschwanstein and Linderhof on the bus on the way. The tickets at the time are timed entry. At Linderhof we took about a half hour tour of the palace and then had some extra time for the gardens. Then on to Neuschwanstein, before entry to the castle there is about an hour or two to walk around the town of Schwangau before heading up. The restaurants do get very busy, we had trouble getting a table at first. To get to the castle you can either walk about 15 minutes ups steep path, or there are horse-drawn carriages and buses to go up. Definitely leave yourself time to get up and back down, as there might be lines for the carriages and buses and the walk can be straining in the heat. Tour of the castle was great. The tour guide on the bus was very kind, but a bit difficult to hear.
