Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich

Bavaria is famous for its fairy-tale castles, built by King Ludwig II, the “Mad King,” and this tour from Munich visits two of the most beautiful. Enjoy a stop and optional tour of Linderhof Castle; marvel at Neuschwanstein Castle, known as the “Sleeping Beauty” castle with a stop and optional tour; wander Hohenschwangau village; and admire the bold murals and medieval houses of Oberammergau.

What to Expect

Make your way to central Munich to meet your guide and group. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out through the Bavarian countryside to Linderhof Castle.

Enjoy around an hour to admire the magnificent French Rococo style façade. If you wish, join a guided tour (optional) and discover the opulent interiors.

Continue to Oberammergau, a medieval village on Bavaria’s Romantic Road. Take photos of the village’s murals, half-timbered buildings, and colorful houses, or browse the souvenir shops for handicrafts.

Finally, visit Neuschwanstein Castle, stopping to enjoy views of the neo-Romanesque style castle, which inspired Disney Sleeping Beauty. You will be dropped at Hohenschwangau village at the bottom of Neuschwanstein mountain. Spend up to four hours of free time to join a guided castle tour (optional), walk to viewpoints, or have lunch.

Castle entrance fees are not included in the tour price.

Your tour ends at your Munich departure point.

Too crowded and tour was brief. Guide was uninspired. The view was spectacular but not sure worth fighting the crowds.

A magical place inspired by legends. Vibrant views, richly decorated interiors, lots of swans, breathtaking surroundings. If you are going there with an infant, remember that you can not enter with a stroller. Fortunately, they have special toilets with changing tables. It's a good idea...More
