Itinerary

Make your way to central Munich to meet your guide and group. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out through the Bavarian countryside to Linderhof Castle.

Enjoy around an hour to admire the magnificent French Rococo style façade. If you wish, join a guided tour (optional) and discover the opulent interiors.

Continue to Oberammergau, a medieval village on Bavaria’s Romantic Road. Take photos of the village’s murals, half-timbered buildings, and colorful houses, or browse the souvenir shops for handicrafts.

Finally, visit Neuschwanstein Castle, stopping to enjoy views of the neo-Romanesque style castle, which inspired Disney Sleeping Beauty. You will be dropped at Hohenschwangau village at the bottom of Neuschwanstein mountain. Spend up to four hours of free time to join a guided castle tour (optional), walk to viewpoints, or have lunch.

Castle entrance fees are not included in the tour price.

Your tour ends at your Munich departure point.

enjoyed our trip to see the castles

Great tour. Ulrich was a very pleasant guide with lots of information to share. We opted not to pay to see the inside of the castles. Both castles are beautiful and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. The bus was comfortable.

On the tour you have paid for entry to the 2 prescribed castles. You would need to pay for and get on your own to the other castle in the time allotted.
