In an earlier posting, it was mentioned that if you have seen Linderhof that there might be better time spent elsewhere if the interior of Newschwanstein is skipped. We will also have seen Herrenchiemsee.
What do others think about skipping the interior tour? Guess it is possible to walk up to the castle gate without buying a tour ticket. Would want to get close, at least.
Also apparently there are buses and horse-drawn carriages to get you to within what is supposed to be a 10 minute walk to the castle. The castle website says it is a 30 minute walk uphill from the town. Don't think the climb will be a problem for us. Sounds like the carriage and buses only saves a little time and then only if there is no waiting for either. Thoughts?Edited: 4:30 pm, April 26, 2014
