The beautiful old town of Füssen, a short two hour journey from Munich, lies at the gateway to the Bavarian Alps. Just outside town, the picturesque old royal district of Hohenschwangau is framed with mountains, forests and lakes. Here, Hohenschwangau Castle can be found, the boyhood home of the future King Ludwig II. Above it, soaring to the sky from its lofty seat in the mountains, his great creation: Neuschwanstein Castle. Neuschwanstein is the most iconic sight in Bavaria and Germany.
Ludwig, the most famous of the Bavarian kings, dotted the Bavarian countryside with spectacular royal building projects such as Linderhof Palace. But none outshine Neuschwanstein Castle. From the outside, Neuschwanstein looks like an impossible vision. All around are spectacular views of the Bavarian Alps, forests, lakes, the town of Füssen in the distance, and a stunning aerial view of Hohenschwangau Castle. Visit the castle interior and marvel at the sumptuously decorated rooms dedicted to the artistic glorification of medieval German Romance and the operas of Richard Wagner, such as in the elaborate and imposing Throne Hall, and you feel you have wandered into a movie.

We have been organising day trips to Neuschwanstein for many years, and are experts in giving you your perfect day in Neuschwanstein Castle. And we know it’s not just about Neuschwanstein.
