NeuschwansteinNeuschwanstein and the Fairytale King

An Extraordinary Excursion to the Fantastic Castles of King Ludwig II

Let us take you on a magical day to the Bavarian Alps and the most famous castle in the world, Neuschwanstein. Built by the tragic fairytale king Ludwig II of Bavaria, Neuschwanstein Castle has captured the hearts and minds of million of visitors over the years, including Walt Disney, who modeled his Cinderella castle after Ludwig’s very original design. On the way to the castle we drive the pretty way through the beautiful Bavarian countryside and fill you in on the fascinating  life story and mysterious death of this king.

Our classic tour also includes two other true highlights, Linderhof Palace and the charming village of Oberammergau.

bav-highlights-05-f-linderhof-43-300Linderhof is a relatively small but very secluded palace, and King Ludwig spent most of his time there. Indeed, it is the only building he was able to finish before his untimely demise. The alpine setting and picturesque Baroque gardens surrounding the palace make for a truly enchanting experience.

Oberammergau is a picture perfect Bavarian village, world famous for wood carvings and the Passion Play which is performed every 10 years (next in 2020).

On most days we also drive past the Plansee, a beautiful high alpine lake (see photos below).
