Neuschwanstein Castle

An Extraordinary  Excursion to the Magical Castle 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.

After the castle visit and lunch there are several possibilities for the afternoon, including Linderhof Palace, Oberammergau, Hohenschwangau Castle, medieval castle ruins and more. We have special programs for children, also. Please see the Tour Options section below for details.

Hohenschwangau Castle was (re-)built by Ludwig’s father and it is where young Ludwig spent his summers. Linderhof is a relatively small but very secluded palace, and King Ludwig spent most of his time here in the last decade before his untimely demise. The alpine setting and picturesque Baroque garden 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 (due to the pandemic the 2020 play was postponed to 2022).

For an adventurous afternoon, we can visit nearby medieval castle ruins with a beautiful view or a different castle ruin with a really long suspension bridge (see the Tour Options Gallery at the bottom of the page).
