Hohenschwangau doesn't get as much attention as Neuschwanstein, but is really beautiful! We walked from Lake Alpsee to the castle and the scenery was breathtaking. The rooms are beautifully furnished, decorated with scenes from medieval legends. The interior courtyard with the fountain and flowers makes...More

The castle tour is wonderful, if a little short. English speaking tour guide and plenty of historical interest

We took the two castle tour and found overall Hohenschwangau was nicer! Certainly it lacks the beauty of Its younger sibling however the tour received is FAR less rushed and this castle feels lived in and less overboard in decor and extravagance. Our tour was...More

Funny tour guide, and surprisingly a lot more to see than Neuschwanstein! (I guess that makes sense, though, since Neuschwanstein was never finished in Ludwig's lifetime and no one ever lived in it.) Keep an eye out for the 100+ year old bread, and the...More

Interesting house but a brief, timed tour didn't really allow enough time to appreciate it all. It's a pity as the guide was excellent.

My friend has bad knees, so we knew that she couldn't handle the hike to Newschwannstein. We took the horse carriage up the drive (4.5 euros) and she was able to hike the small distance to this castle plus handle the stairs inside the castle....More

A fabulous castle to visit. The tour guide was excellent at explaining the history of the castle, and answering questions. Much quieter than nearby Neuschwanstein. Very underappreciated due to the fame of its neighbour. Worth visiting on its own. A lovely short walk up to...More

My favorite castle in Germany so far. Outside garden (free) has a view over the Alpsee lake and decorated beautifully. Inside wasn’t lavish or huge, because it was just the royal family vacation home, but I like the lived in atmosphere. Our guide was very...More

Also, keep in mind that the interior of this castle was never completed by King Ludwig II. Only the finished rooms (16 in total) are accessible
