The enchanting old-world town of Fussen lies in the foot hills of the Alps, framed by one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the world. Traveling by rail on small group guided tour from Munich, you'll tour the ethereal Neuschwanstein Castle, be taken to the best vantage points; the lake, the postcard-perfect aerial view of the equally beautiful Hohenschwangau Castle and to the waterfall gorge.

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Rail Tour
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city

This glorious folly was built in the 19th century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by myth and who himself became a legend. The shimmering white towers of the castle among the clouds are instantly recognizable to many and is the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, and is also famous as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Castle. To visit it is to step inside a fairy tale.

Your guide will tell the engaging story of King Ludwig's renowned and tragic reign, of his turbulent times, and of the obsession that drove him to build his fantasy castle in the mountains and ultimately destroyed him. Take an exclusive internal tour of the king's private chambers with a specialist castle guide.

Entrance fees to the Neuschwanstein Castle are not included. A supplement of 12 euros (per person) is payable direct. This guided tour includes advance booking so you can skip long lines and gain quick access to the Neuschwanstein Castle. Don't waste time waiting in lines on vacation!

The journey to Neuschwanstein takes approximately 2 hours by train. Germany's rail system is world renown and this journey to the Alps is no exception. Offering spectacular views, trains are clean, comfortable and equipped with washrooms. Feel free to walk around and chat to your fellow travellers as well as your guide, who can answer any questions about Munich and Bavaria.

Traveler Reviews

This tour made the visit to Neuschwanstein very easy! Our guide Keith was very knowledgable with a great sense of humor although you are given a separate guide to tour the castle. Highly recommend this tour.

This trip includes a train from Munich to Füssen, a bus from Füssen to Schwangau, head-of-the-line tickets at the castle, and a knowledgeable tour guide. It's pretty much a full day, but I would definitely recommend it. The guide on my tour, Austin, was the sort of tour guide who loves his work, is interested in what he's showing you, and loves sharing knowledge with others. He not only provided background information on the life of King Ludwig II, but he also explained everything we saw and gave us the historical context necessary to understand the genius and tragedy of the so-called Mad King. On the way back, he went around to each person on the tour group and answered any questions we had and gave us recommendations on dinner and lodgings in Munich.
