27 Jun Single-Day Trip: Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau (private tour)
This private, full-day royal castle tour will show you two of the palaces built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Starting from Munich, escape to the Bavarian foothills of Füssen to see Neuschwanstein Castle, famous inspiration for Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” castle and without doubt one of the most frequently photographed sights in Germany. Save time and skip the line to enjoy a walking tour of this popular fairy tale abode. Explore the rooms where King Ludwig II and his royal family resided, marvel at extravagant decorations and exquisite halls, and enter the Hall of the Holy Grail, in which King Ludwig II united his nostalgia for the Middle Ages with the latest technology of the time. From the castle windows, enjoy breathtaking views of the Alpine surroundings. In addition, see Hohenschwangau Castle, King Ludwig’s childhood home.
Afterwards, enjoy a stroll around Hohenschwangau’s scenic Lake Alpsee or stop at nearby Linderhof Castle which was modeled on the Palace of Versailles. Your expert guide will take the time to customize the tour itinerary to suit your interests, and will provide fascinating details on the palaces and on King Ludwig II.
