Overview
Visiting Bavaria’s magical Neuschwanstein Castle by train makes it an even more memorable experience. On this tour, relax on the ride from Munich to Fussen, where you’ll have the option to walk or catch a carriage ride up to the castle. Save valuable vacation time by getting skip-the-line access, and learn about the site’s fascinating history with an included guided tour. Note: Coach travel replaces train during certain months.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with a roughly 2-hour train ride from Munich through the German countryside to Fussen. Note that the train is seasonal, offered during January through April and mid-October through November, and you’ll be traveling by coach otherwise. When you arrive, walk 20 minutes up the hill to the castle or opt for a carriage ride.

The price of the tour doesn’t include your castle entrance fee, but you can pay it directly to the tour company on the day of your visit. And by booking in advance, you’ll receive skip-the-line access.

Visit the castle interiors and towers, and get the photo ops and views of surrounding attractions including a lake, waterfall gorge, and Hohenschwangau Castle. Listen while your guide tells stories about the tragic reign of the “mad” 19th-century Bavarian king who commissioned the building of the castle.

Finish the day with a return ride back to Munich.

A Must See Experience

It is a long steep walk to this castle. However able bodied well cared for draft horses take you there for a reasonable price. Don't miss this castle Disney World copied. You will not be disappointed!

We're very sorry for what happened. Clearly there was a breakdown in communication. We'll speak to the guide in question and do everything we can to ensure that nothing like this happens in future.

Awesome Tour!!!

A highlight of our trip to Germany. Our guide Jova at Radius Tours, was very informative in a captivating way. You will get so much more out of touring the castle if you take this guided tour. Be sure to ask for Jova tho.

There are A LOT of steps on this tour. Inside the castle you have to climb several flights of stairs, which even had me winded at times and I'm in pretty good shape. For this tour you are also walking like a mile up hill to... More
