We left Munich at 9:00 am, got there by 11:00 and were already directed to the second overflow parking area. The number plates of the cars represented everything but German cars. This is tourist attraction #1 in Germany and it shows. The line to purchase the tickets to get into the castle was 90 minutes long (BEFORE YOU COULD EVEN GET A TICKET!!!). Once we got to the front of the line (about 12:30 PM) we got the earliest tour on offer for 4:25 PM (3 HOURS LATER!!!). The wait to take the carriage up the hill was another 60 minutes. If you thing going to the theme parks in Orlando in the summer is madness, this is worse. To top it off, only a dozen rooms in the castle were ever finished and the place is completely artificial, having been built at a time when castles were just as out of date as today. Buy a postcard in Munich and pretend you went and use your time to take the cable car up the mountain instead and do some hiking there. Your time will be better spent.
