We did a 3 Castle Tour, with "Daetz-Service" where we stoppt at Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau and Linderhof. Linderhof and its Park and Grotto where amazing. So beautiful and the historic details just where stunning. A absolute must see.

This is a very interesting palace. When doing the tour one learns so much about King Ludwig II and the character that he was. The walk to the palace is through a charming forest. This small palace is interesting inside but heavily decorated. Worth a visit. Beautiful photo opportunities outside the palace.

This castle is beautiful. The garden outside is simply gorgeous along with the fountains. Outside you can take all the pictures you want. While the inside was cool and translators spoken good English, I found the outside more appealing. You are not allowed to take pictures inside the castle.

The grounds are marvelous. The house tour is short enough that children who really are interested in ornate houses are fine. There are tours in English.

I think I went to every palace or castle in the Munich area, and I liked this one the best. Why? It's small - about 10 rooms - but each room is an ornate, extravagant work of art, filled with gold, ivory and gems. It makes the interior of Neushwanstein look very plain in comparison. Also, the 1-hour drive from... More

We were in Schwangau and ready to sightsee at 9am, we had seen the other castles so in 45 mins by car we were buying tickets to this castle. 2€ carpark entry, and 7.50€ per adult. A short walk to the castle which is very small. All was going ok, until we had to do the guided tour! PLEASE NOOOOOO,!... More

It is not a very big palace but very interesting with all the gold. Our tour was in German, but there are books in English. Note that you can only enter with a tour. Sadly the cave is closed and we were told it will take 5 years for renovation to be completed. We will also go back in summer... More

Ludwig II really lived in this castle. The castle is full of his own things and really lost of gold decorations on the walls and ceiling. Interior impresses with roaylty and beauty. It is better to visit it in summer period than in winter as the garden around cant show its fountains and flowers in winter (((

We visited Linderhof on our way to the more famous palace nearby, both were totally worth it. They were maybe an hour apart on the way from Munich. The grounds at Linderhof were expansive, but mostly boarded up in the offseason. If you're traveling in the summer set aside some time to see the fountains, flowers, and man-made waterfalls. Inside... More

Llinderoff it's the smallest but the most beautiful of the three "castles" built by Ludwig II of Bavaria. It has marvelous rooms, specifically the king chambers, and a wonderful scenic garden with cascades, staircases, rose gardens, the extravagant wagnerian grotto, exotic pavilions. This alpine region has several touristic attractions around the "schloss" like the charming village of Ettal and it's... More
