Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Day Tour from Munich
From US$64,62

Bavaria is famous for its fairy-tale castles, built by King Ludwig II, the “Mad King,” and this tour from Munich visits two of the most beautiful. Enjoy a stop and optional tour of Linderhof Castle; marvel at Neuschwanstein Castle, known as the “Sleeping Beauty” castle with a stop and optional tour; wander Hohenschwangau village; and admire the bold murals and medieval houses of Oberammergau.

What to Expect

Make your way to central Munich to meet your guide and group. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out through the Bavarian countryside to Linderhof Castle.

Enjoy around an hour to admire the magnificent French Rococo style façade. If you wish, join a guided tour (optional) and discover the opulent interiors.

Continue to Oberammergau, a medieval village on Bavaria’s Romantic Road. Take photos of the village’s murals, half-timbered buildings, and colorful houses, or browse the souvenir shops for handicrafts.

Finally, visit Neuschwanstein Castle, stopping to enjoy views of the neo-Romanesque style castle, which inspired Disney Sleeping Beauty. You will be dropped at Hohenschwangau village at the bottom of Neuschwanstein mountain. Spend up to four hours of free time to join a guided castle tour (optional), walk to viewpoints, or have lunch.

Castle entrance fees are not included in the tour price.

Your tour ends at your Munich departure point.

Totally worth it & very nice tour guide

It was a pleasant experience overall. I do agree with other travellers who mentioned that the Neuschwanstein Castle looks better from the bridge than up close. Also to be fair the guided tour inside was only of about 30 minutes and through very selected (...More

Not Impressed

Your best bet is to see the bridge & enjoy the fantastic view of Neuschwanstein before your tour of the castle, as it's a further 15 mins walk up from the castle and 15 mins down. Otherwise you will be rushed for time.
