Munich to Fussen back to Oberammergau to Munich

We will be in Munich in July if we take the train to Fussen 2hrs 5mins and extra 15 mins to the Neuschvanstein Castle, how long do you think we need to see the castle before we head to Oberammergau 1hr 25mins on the bus before leaving for Munich at 5.14pm.

Would be grateful to know if this is fisable

Happy travelling.

If you plan on touring the castle, best leave Munich before 0900. Once you get to the castle, you'll need to stand in que for a ticket (maybe 45 minutes). If you don't see an English tour that starts before 1300, I would say don't do it.

You can book Neuschwanstein tickets for the tours of the interior at www.hohenschwangau.de . Note that you have to pick up the tickets at the ticket office in Hohenschwangau at least an hour before your tour. I think that it is a good idea to have reserved tickets: you have a tour in the language of your choice when YOU want to do it; you don't have to stand in long ticket lines; and also you are ensured of having a tour that day whereas the tours could possibly be all sold out by the time you get up to the window to purchase your tickets.

You can leave from Munich for Fuessen before 9AM on a weekday using the Bavaria day train ticket if you buy a regular ticket from Munich to where the train will be after 9AM. On weekends, you can also travel before 9AM with this ticket.

Fantastic !! Great info and prompt as usual with your reply. We will do as you say. We travelled through Europe last year ( Italy France etc) and we did it all with the help of you guys on trip advisor, we had no hiccups, it was great.

Thanks to you again from OZ
