Visiting Bavaria’s magical Neuschwanstein Castle by train makes it an even more memorable experience. On this tour, relax on the ride from Munich to Fussen, where you’ll have the option to walk or catch a carriage ride up to the castle. Save valuable vacation time by getting skip-the-line access, and learn about the site’s fascinating history with an included guided tour. Note: Coach travel replaces train during certain months.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with a roughly 2-hour train ride from Munich through the German countryside to Fussen. Note that the train is seasonal, offered during January through April and mid-October through November, and you’ll be traveling by coach otherwise. When you arrive, walk 20 minutes up the hill to the castle or opt for a carriage ride.

The price of the tour doesn’t include your castle entrance fee, but you can pay it directly to the tour company on the day of your visit. And by booking in advance, you’ll receive skip-the-line access.

Visit the castle interiors and towers, and get the photo ops and views of surrounding attractions including a lake, waterfall gorge, and Hohenschwangau Castle. Listen while your guide tells stories about the tragic reign of the “mad” 19th-century Bavarian king who commissioned the building of the castle.

Finish the day with a return ride back to Munich.

Inkompetent guide

Contrary to the former information we drove by train from Munich. The Organisation and information in the train was okay. As we got to the train station near Füßen we were supposed to be getting into a reserved bus, which wasn’t there. Our guide didn’t...More

Castle visit

The Organization zog the tour was excellent and so was our tour Guide Ali. The bus ride was very comfortable and the bus driver was amazing how he manoeuvred the bus on the Autobahn in poring rain .

Sorry, I am not familiar with cancelling policy, you need to check your voucher. However, castle entrance fee is 14 euro additional which you pay when you check in. So at least you don't have to worry about that part
