2 castles in 1/2 day

Hi

I will visit Fussen in April. I will arrive there at 11:54 am by train and I don't know if I will have enough time to visit the Hohenschwangau castle and the Neuschwanstein castle. What do you think?

I will buy my tickets online to skip the lines and save some time.

Thanks!

You have enough time to visit both castles.

minimum times

1 h between the collection of the reserved tickets at the ticket center and the first tour at Hohenschwangau

0,5 h for the Hohenschwangau tour

1 h time to get to Neuschwanstein castle (the ticket center will book you automatically on the next possible tour for Neuschwanstein castle you can make it to)

0,5 h for the Neuschwanstein tour

.

Thus if you collect your tickets at 12:30 you will be earliest finished with Neuschwanstein Castle at 15:30. But even if the tour slots won't work out that perfectly you have enough time (up to 2 hours time buffer). And it is also no problem to return from Füssen to Munich later in the evening.

thanks Abalada!

I visited Neuschwanstein 3 years ago, but it was in an organized tour and I did not remember how many time took me. And my tour did not include Hohenschwangau. Because of this I had not idea about the necessary time to visit both castles.
