DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

Start: Memmingen Allgäu Airport, Memmingerberg

Destination: Hohenschwangau, Schwangau (Schlösser)

and select as means of transport "only local transport".

.

Best deal is to use a Bayern Ticket. EUR 29 for 2-5 persons traveling together. Covers the complete trip incl. bus from the airport to Memmingen station and from Füssen station to Hohenschwangau. DB timetable does however not know about bus fares - thus if you want to buy a Bayern Ticket online use

Start: Memmingen

Destination: Füssen

Bayern Ticket is valid

Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day

Sa,Su: from midnight till 3am next day

hello, thank you for you reply. :-) I have read from other post that it might take up to 2 hours to get to neuschwanstein castle. Is this true? Is it nearer to fly to Memmingen than Munich?

For the timesaver option I'd rent a car. Costs less than € 100 incl petrol. There are other places of interest in the area too and a car is better for exploring than public transport.

If you travel by car yes. By train you'll need more time due the less direct route.

Using the trains there is no big difference between Memmingen Airport and Munich Airport (Flughafen München on the map). The latter has it's own train station which makes up a bit for the longer distance. In both cases you have to travel via Buchloe to Füssen.

By car Memmingen is considerably closer time wise as you can use the autobahn A7 between both towns.

Is there any possibility to take a taxi directly from Menningen airport to hotel in Hohenschwangau? What would be the price for such trip?

Thanx

Before people get too excited about visiting Neuschwanstein Palace, the valley facing sides are under scaffolding. It should be less than an hour away by car from Memmingen driving.

Near to Memmingen is Ottobeuren ( www.ottobeuren.de ) and the abbey church there has one of the best interiors of any church in Germany, just jam-packed full of more beautiful Baroque religious items than can easily be comprehended.

There is no fixed taxi tariff that would be valid allover Germany, Each taxi company has its own, but as a rule of thumb you can calculate EUR 3.00 one-time fee plus EUR 1.70 per kilometer. Memmingen-Airport to Neuschwanstein are 85 kms, so you have a price of roughly 150 EUR. Moreover, long-distance drives are negotiable.
