Are advance reservations necessary for a visit to the castles in two weeks-last week of March,2008? During our upcoming Germany vacation, we will be driving from Rothenburg to Reutte on March 27 to spend one night. We are not sure if will have time to tour the castles on our way in the afternoon or the next morning, so would like to be able to decide that day. Or are we safer to make a decision now and reserve ticket times as we do not want to miss it?

Not necessary in your case. If you stay there (Reutte) you're not under the time pressure like e.g. tourists which do this as day trip from Munich.

I usually like to keep things very flexible, but I think that for Neuschwanstein I would definitely have reservations. You never know when specific English tours might be full, so you are in charge of your destiny, instead of others. I probably would spend the full day visiting other things between Rothenburg and Reutte, there's plenty to see whether you take the Romantic Road or not. Then see Neuschwanstein first thing by taking the first English tour in the morning, which with advanced reservations you will have no problem. Tickets must be picked up at the ticket counter at the latest 1 hour before the tour. You can probably get by without advanced reservations, but why chance having to wait for the next available English tour.
