Driving from Salzberg to Fussen July 4, 2013. Trying to decide if we should visit Neuschwanstein Castle late afternoon on Thursday the 4th or early morning Friday July 5th. Can anyone tell me how bad the crowds are late afternoon in the summer? Would it be better to reserve tickets for first tour on Friday morning or will some of the lines have died down if we wait and do a tour around 5pm on Thursday? Thanks for any insight!
