Yep, it's the one that inspired Disney. Interesting place and history. I found the hike to above the castle to be even more interesting.

Very impressive castle complex, the view from the bridge is amazing, but anyway i suggest to cross over the bridge and climb up the hill, there are not a lot of tourists and incredible view!

Stunning castle. Beautiful walk up to the entrance. Short tour and relatively noisy. But worth the walk and the noise. This is a must see for all Disney fans!

It is a very long walk to the top, mostly due to the elevation, but it is worth it. They do offer carriage rides to the top for a 5 euro per person fee, which if you are not in reasonable shape or if you...More

If you are in Munich, or any place near Munich, Neuschwanstein Castle is definitely a must-see place... The castle's architecture is astonishing, but what makes it more perfect, is its location and the nature that surrounds it. DEFINITELY go to the bridge opposite to the...More

Ticket is indeed only to visit interior of the castle. You can either walk up and take the bus or horse carriage w/o purchasing the castle ticket. The are is paradise for hikers and views of the castle are amazing. Enjoy it !

Take icebreakers base layer and a top layer or something similar and then warm jackets. Layers are best as you can always take off. And if you aren't walking up and standing in line it can get cold.
