From $51.89
See Neuschwanstein Castle on a relaxed day trip by train from Munich. After traveling with a guide for an easy journey, choose to explore the castle on a tour or take a hike to view the fairy-tale fortress from nearby foothills. It’s a customizable experience, perfect for families or friends who might want different things out of their Neuschwanstein visit.
What to Expect
Head to Munich’s central station to meet your guide and board your train to Hohenschwangau, the pretty Bavarian village near Neuschwanstein Castle.

On the journey, hear stories about the castles of Bavaria, mad King Ludwig, and the swan knight Lohengrin, a legend linked to the region. When you arrive in Hohenschwangau, head to nearby Marienbrücke for impressive views of the fortress that provided inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle.

Opt to visit Neuschwanstein itself and marvel at its ornate interiors on a tour, or hike in the neighboring foothills, soaking up sweeping castle vistas as you go. Note that entrance fees are payable at your own expense.

After the tour or hike, return to Munich by train with your guide.
