Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city

Departing Munich, visit the smallest of three royal castles, Linderhof, which was built by King Ludwig II during the 19th century as a hunting lodge. Built in French Rococo style, the castle has a Moorish pavilion which can be visited during your one hour stay. You have the option to join a guided tour of the interior of Linderhof.

After departing Linderhof, you will have a short shopping stop in Oberammergau, world-famous for its woodcarvers, richly painted houses (Luftl-paintings) and Passion Play.

On the approach to Neuschwanstein, it will quickly become clear as to why this magnificent neo-Romanesque style castle is the most well known castle in the world. It appears through the mist like something out of a fairytale, and you will not be surprised to hear that the man who conceived its design - King Ludwig II, was considered quite eccentric. If it all seems very familiar, it may be because the castle was the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

You will stop in Hohenschwangau, a small town at the feet of the castle, where you'll have 4 hours at disposal for lunch and to explore the grounds of Neuschwanstein. You'll also have the option of joining a guided tour of the interior of the castles if you wish.

It was fabulous! The tour guide was so good, She had the schedule down to the minute, had an interesting commentary during the journey, friendly, made the trip fun. The bus driver was awesome also, smooth ride, great trip. The layout of the tour was just what we had hoped for. We loved the castles and the countryside that we traveled through.

The whole tour was fantastic but Mother Nature had other plans-heavy fog that blocked any views. Our guide was great, informative and personable. Would do it all over again. Well run! We rate the tour as a five star. Definitely worth it.
