Overview

Located two hours from Munich, the enchanting old-world town of Füssen lies at the foot hills of the Alps, framed by one of the most breathtaking natural settings in the world. Towering far above the village, seemingly sculpted out of the very mountains, is the fabulous and ethereal Neuschwanstein Castle. It was built in the 19th century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man obsessed with myth and who himself became a legend.

It is the inspiration behind Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, and is famous the world over as the ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Castle’. Learn from your guide the complete story of the castle in all its humour, romance and tragedy. This is one German excursion you will remember for time to come!

Itinerary

  • The tour starts in the morning from Munich Central Train Station opposite platform 32. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you will take a two hour guided train journey south of Munich to the town of Fussen, located at the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Proceed to the Neuschwanstein Castle, towering far above the village. It was built in the 19th century by the famed “mad” King Ludwig II, a man obsessed with myth and who himself became a legend. Your tour includes a return train journey to and from the Alps with stops at various vantage points around the grounds of the castle in the foothills of the mountains. Enjoy views of the lake, the Marienbrücke bridge suspended above the castle and various other panoramic viewpoints. The guide will give you a presentation on the story behind the castle. You can also visit the castle from the inside (optional, involves an additional cost of 17€, for adults). The internal tour of the castle is conducted by a separate castle guide. Reserve in advance with your group and save yourself the agony of standing in a long queue! At the end of a splendid castle tour, you will return back to Munich Central Train Station by train.
