Yet another of the eccentric King Ludwig II's magnificently odd architectural creations.

Visited this castle last week whilst we toured Europe in our camper van. The castle was beautiful but had scaffolding up at the front at the time which did detract from its beauty. You cannot drive all the way up to the castle but can...More

After dreaming this visit for years we drove all the way to Neuschwanstain. The castle is breathtaking, the main hall, the bedroom and the kitchen which particularly impressed me because is somehow so modern. I was pregnant at the time, we could get a secondary...More

Even though Ludwig was a reclusive and selfish man, his fantasies resulted in some beautiful castles. This is quite impressive and fun to tour. It is very well organized with audio headsets and crowd control. Be prepared for a lot of walking. I suggest sneakers...More

The tour is short, as the castle interior was only partially completed. The guide is informative, however and the portions that are completed are beautiful. Tours are let in as groups and you are given a starting time on your ticket which you present to...More

I highly recommend it as a day trip from Munich, on a guided tour so you can hear the story of Ludvig II and the existence of the castle. To get in you need to pay 13€. Wait for the number on your ticket to...More

Neuschwanstein Castle deserves to be on your bucket list. Judging by the number of fellow tourists it must be on quite a few. We were not disappointed and the experience surpassed our expectations. We booked our ticket in advance which we had to collect and...More

First tip I would have would be to book online before coming. This will save you in a couple of ways. First, I booked online to tour both of the castles and the Museum of Kings. The booking agent got back to us and saw...More

We went to Neuschwanstein in April and like all other tourists we got suckered into booking a tour. The tour of the castle is simply underwhelming, yet overpriced. Photography is prohibited and if it were permitted, the lighting is so poor, the pictures would be...More

I got her via a day tour and highly recommend. If you do solely this castle, you will be disappointed. You have to pay to park, pay to enter, pay for transportation up (unless you want to walk uphill). The views are great and the...More

Hi there, the distance from Baden Baden is only 3hr. More than 5 1/2 from Cologne. Each city will have its own transportation. If you can get to Fussen, you can get the ride up to the castle from there. Great place to... More
Hi, how do I go about booking online? I can't seem to find the scheduled guide departure times on the website. All that's asked on the reservation form is the preferred date and time of the tour- how would I know what time the (English) tour is?! It just says pickup time is 60mins before entrance time (of the tour)? Or is the tour timings only available to be reserved when I collect my tickets? Thanks

They'll respond back to you with your time and date as close to your desired time as possible. They will send you an email. We had a potential transportation issue and requested a change, which was made by them.
