Wander through the scenic German countryside on your way to the legendary extravagance of the German castles Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Known for their elaborate construction and world-famous architecture, these two extraordinary structures were dreamed up by Germany's own Ludwig II, also known as the Swan King.
Find out why many believe Neuschwanstein inspired Disney's storybook castles and get ready to feel like you're living a real-life fairy tale. Hidden in the seclusion of the mountains, German King Ludwig II built two of his dream castles: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Both testify to the vision of Bavaria's fairytale King.
Departing from Munich, you'll first visit Linderhof Castle, a French rococo-style castle inspired by Versailles itself and surrounded by immaculately manicured gardens. A quick shopping and photo stop in the charming village Oberammergau will recharge your batteries for the second half of your day. You'll arrive at idyllic Neuschwanstein Castle around 13:00, where you're free to enjoy approximately 4 hours to explore the castle.

Do not be put off by the fact that there may be lots of tourists here. It is an absolute 'must see' if you are anywhere nearby. Take the pony and carriage ride up the hill for amusement value or if you are infirm. We bought coffee and cake from the cafe right by the pick -up point for the pony rides. IThe ride cost 6 euros per person one way. Our tour guide, Monika, was excellent and very knowledgable, but not over burdening us with information either. The guide at Linderhof was superb. Be prepared to be moved through both buildings quite quickly. This is becasue they have such a vast number of visitors each day. If you linger, you will lose your signal for your audio tour. We were lucky with the weather and it snowed while we were there. The views are just stunning, but bring good shoes if you plan to walk up and down the hill to Neuschwanstein. It is possible to visit under your own steam, but doing a guided tour took away a lot of the angst and made for a very trouble-free trip. We had timed tickets for Neuschwanstein. There s a bit of time for shopping in the visitor centres at both Neuschwanstein and Linderhof and the stop-over at Oberammergau allows time for a quick browse in the local shops. The one recommended by our guide was a bit naff, so we visited Kathe Wohlfahrt (the centre of all Christmas kitsch) but also a good source of genuine German products.Would thoroughly recommend this tour.

"Our guide Anna was awesome! She was very friendly and informative and helpful. She gave us info on Munich and Germany on our way to the castles, and she kept the hour or so ride very enjoyable. The bus we were on was comfortable and clean. I would Absolutely do this again!!!!"
