UH-OH! AT THE MOMENT, THERE ARE NO TOURS AVAILABLE FOR MUNICH
High demand, seasonal availability and unexpected closures can be the reason. We're working on getting it up and running. Meanwhile, you can search for other activities on our website. We don’t want you to leave disappointed!
The best time for a Bavarian Castles tour is during late spring and early fall. The crowds are far smaller than during the peak season of summer; and, if you want those idyllic, fairytale photos of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof, then the shoulder seasons offer the best chance for a clear day during your Bavarian Castles vacation. Surprisingly enough, Bavaria receives more precipitation during the summer than any other season. So, if you plan your Bavarian Castles sightseeing tour for the summer, you should be aware that there’s a fair possibility that you’ll need to bring an umbrella. Winters are quite cold and Neuschwanstein is in the Alps after all; so, you can expect a fair amount of snow. With that said, the view of a snow-covered castle definitely has its own appeal. Plus, the tourist crowds are at their annual low-point. Keep in mind that Neuschwanstein does see a significant uptick in footfall during the winter holidays, however.
Getting to Neuschawanstein from Munich is rather easy, but it’s a multi-step process. You’ll need to catch one of the hourly trains to Füssen from Munich Hauptbahnhof Station. The ride to Füssen takes about 2.5 hours. Then, once you’ve reached Füssen, you’ll need to take a short, 10-minute bus ride to Neuschwanstein. You can either hop on Bus 73 towards Steingaden/Garmisch-Partenkirchen or Bus 78 towards Schwangau. Finally, after hopping off the bus, you’ll have to figure out how to make the climb to Neuschwanstein Castle. Your three options are to take a 40-minute, uphill walk, climb aboard a horse-drawn carriage, or hop on a private bus and pay a little over 3 dollars for a round-trip ticket. To get to Linderhof Palace, you’ll need to take a 2-hour train ride from Munich to Oberammergau. Then, hop aboard Bus 9622 to Linderhof.
Short on cash? No problem! You can visit all three of Ludwig II of Bavaria’s castles for free. Just keep in mind that you’ll have to pay to actually go inside.
