What city should we make our "base" at to see Neuschwanstein

We will be in Germany in June for 2 weeks. I might add, with our 2 kids ages 9 and 11.

Our hotel stays will be in Wetzlar, (near Frankfurt), Heidelburg, Lindau (on the Bodensee) Salzburg, Austria and Munich. I am not sure which city we should leave from to make the trip to Neuschwanstein? Lindau near the Bodensee or Munich?? We will be staying 2 nights at each hotel..... Any advice would be appreciated. Also, if there are other points of interest Castles, museums, etc. I would appreciate the input!

Thanks in Advance!!! SO EXCITED!!! :-)

by car?

Best would be to do Neuschwanstein Castle on the route from Lindau to Munich. A detour - but nothing against the backtracking when doing it as a day trip.

by train?

Do it as a day trip from Munich as from there you have the better train connections to Füssen.

Either way - reserve tickets for Neuschwanstein Castle in advance.

Dangerous request. There is no shortage on these.

From Heidelberg you can do a trip into the Neckar Valley with its 4 castles.

20 min. by S-Bahn or you can do a combined boat trip to Neckarsteinach and back by train.

Two museums interesting also for kids which can be done from Lindau

Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen

with a reproduction of a part of the LZ 129 one can enter
