Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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.
  • Skip driving for a round-trip train or coach ride from Munich
  • Option for a horse-drawn carriage ride up the hill to the castle
  • Save time spent waiting in the admission queue with skip-the-line access 
  • Mingle with your guide and other castle visitors during your train ride
  • Learn about the folly of “Mad” King Ludwig II during your guided tour
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.

Unfortunately, I forgot the names of our two tour guides. Both were great friendly guys with blonde hair. The guides took us to a few hidden spots to get the best views of the castle. Near the end, they gave us about 2 hours to explore the area and one of them mentioned a small
