Great place to visit! A must see! Nevertheless it is better to plan your trip in advance. It can be a very crowded place. If you get your ticket in advance and be there in time you will have a fantastic day. It is a...More

It is not so much as the castle itself, exquisite as it is, but the location! Believe me. All the pictures you see while deciding if it is worth a visit are not photoshoped! lol

This is the top site in Germany so be prepared for crowds. If you are not going as a tour group I recommend getting your tickets early and being on time at the gate! You have 4 min. To enter with your group and then...More

Visited with 2 friends in March. You can walk up to the castle for free, I wouldn’t bother with any tours. There were far too many people on the guided tour and we were rushed around and given no time to look around (this would...More

Although you cannot take pictures inside the castle, it is definitely one of the better castles in Europe that I would recommend people to take the effort and see. The King of Bavaria Ludwig II was an avid fan of Wagner's works which can be...More

I came here on a tour on an atrociously wet day. With it being a tour we walked up to the castle. If I was here by myself in similar conditions I'm not sure I'd do that again. Horse and cart would do just fine....More
