From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

1. From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip

Spend a day in picturesque Bavaria, enjoying a drive on the Romantic Road in the Bavarian Alps. On the way to the fairy tale 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 it 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.

What people are saying about Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Absolutely amazing. My sons (aged 23 and 22) and I booked this tour, and we loved it. We stopped at two beautiful churches, which were so interesting to visit, and made the ride from Munich seem very short. After visiting the breathtaking castle and it’s views, we had a late lunch in a village and we’ had some time to walk around and enjoy the shops. Mario, our guide, was also a joy. If you have the chance, this is a must.

Mario was amazing! Super friendly and provided a ton of interesting information. The day moved at a great pace with plenty of stops for restrooms, food, and site seeing. Mario and his team were able to obtain tickets for the castle for our group even when the castle's website was sold out for the day. The tour was great. Well-paced, tour available in many languages.

Arnem (tour guide) did a fantastic job adding to the tour due to COVID closures that precluded visits to secondary attractions. For a company like this to make the most out of the situation to accommodate its guests makes it a world class company for any traveler.

Excellent trip. Very informative, friendly and helpful guide. We really enjoyed the day with Mario and getting to see the various sites we would never have seen otherwise. Would definitely recommend as a day trip away from the city.

We had the most wonderful daytrip with our super friendly and caring guide! And also it is very comfortable to have trip only with 1 family during these days.
