We took the short (steeper) walk up to Hohenschwangau and arrived to the courtyard area. With a bit of time before our tour was scheduled to start we walked around the courtyard. We visited on a foggy day, so were unable to see the alps or Neuschwanstein. Be sure to check your ticket and be on time for your tour, otherwise, you might miss it.
Our guide was well spoken and led us through the various rooms of the palace. She was knowledgeable and it was interesting to learn about where King Ludwig II spent his childhood. We found a lot of the "modern" conveniences of the castle to be really neat.
After the tour we took the long walk down. For those that are interested, there is an option to take a horse and carriage ride.
*if you stayed in the area the night before be sure to show your hotel voucher when you purchase your ticket for a discounted price.
