Neuschwanstein Castle Tour

This remains our most popular day trip. Our fully-guided day trip from Munich to our Neuschwanstein Castle Tour visits this nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival white-turreted Schloß. The palace was commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to composer Richard Wagner.

Set in the midst of a forest of firs and pines, Neuschwanstein overlooks the gorge of Pöllat, Lake Forggen and the village of Hohenschwangau. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune. By means of extensive borrowing – 6.2 Million Marks – for construction, it left him in debt. What followed was his mysterious death in the shallow shore water of Starnbergersee (until 1962: Würmsee).

With more than 1.3 million visitors annually, the palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for many similar structures.

While in SW Bavaria, this is a also good time to visit:

Pilgrimage Church of the Wies, the UNESCO World Heritage Site; and/or
Schloss Linderhof, which was King Ludwig II primary residence; and/or
Oberammergau, a town famous for the Passion Play and for purchasing of Christmas decorations (e.g. Nativity Scene).
