Very enjoyable day trip, very well organized, left at around 9:00 am from near the Hofbrauhaus, returned about 7:15 pm. The tour guide, Brad Daynes, is knowledgeable and keeps the tour moving along at a good pace. First there is an easy bike ride to a nearby lake (the most strenuous part of the ride is the last five minutes on the way back), with optional swimming. Lunch follows, then optional activities (summer luge run, tandem paragliding if weather is good), and a spectacular show of close-up magic by Brad. After the magic show there is a 45 minute hike uphill along a creek to reach the castle and Mary's bridge (overlooks the castle). At the castle, no waiting in line for the tour since Brad has procured timed tickets in advance. The castle tour, given by official tour guides, takes no more than 30 minutes. The castle is worth the visit, with spectacular chandeliers and woodwork. In all, the trip was really enjoyable, with beautiful scenery and fun activities. Brad and the Bus Bavaria team (the same people who run Mike's Bike Tours) made the trip memorable, enjoyable, easy, and fun. A note on the weather: we left Munich in the rain; had little rain during the bike ride before lunch; after lunch, the skies cleared and we had a beautiful afternoon.
