beautiful castle and visit well organized . Possibility, in the same day to visit this Castle and the other (Hohenschwangau Castle) very close to the Neuschwanstein Castle. Suggestion: to arrive early in the morning to the ticket office to avoid to wait longer in line.

We spent the night in Fussen before visiting Neuschwanstein and I recommend doing the same. This way you can get to the castle before the crowds arrive from Munich. Make sure you book your ticket time ahead of time online as soon as you know...More
