Yet another of the eccentric King Ludwig II's magnificently odd architectural creations.

I was disappointed. First, the experience is diluted by the waiting, walking, lining up, and shuffling too rapidly from room to room. Second, only part of the castle was completed. Finally, it is a study in obsession that say more about German Myth and the...More

This is an unique castle. I have never seen such an impressive construction, an amazing castle raising over the rocks, between beautiful mountains. The interior is exotic, looks like a fairy tale. The king Ludwig II when building the castle was inspired by Wagner's music...More

Visited this castle last week whilst we toured Europe in our camper van. The castle was beautiful but had scaffolding up at the front at the time which did detract from its beauty. You cannot drive all the way up to the castle but can...More

Even though Ludwig was a reclusive and selfish man, his fantasies resulted in some beautiful castles. This is quite impressive and fun to tour. It is very well organized with audio headsets and crowd control. Be prepared for a lot of walking. I suggest sneakers...More

The tour is short, as the castle interior was only partially completed. The guide is informative, however and the portions that are completed are beautiful. Tours are let in as groups and you are given a starting time on your ticket which you present to...More

I highly recommend it as a day trip from Munich, on a guided tour so you can hear the story of Ludvig II and the existence of the castle. To get in you need to pay 13€. Wait for the number on your ticket to...More

Is the small hotel at the base of Neuschwanstein Castle still there? I stayed there seven years ago but do not remember the name... We are going back to Germany in early September and starting to book our hotels.

Hi there, the distance from Baden Baden is only 3hr. More than 5 1/2 from Cologne. Each city will have its own transportation. If you can get to Fussen, you can get the ride up to the castle from there. Great place to... More
