Neuschwanstein and the Second Reich with a Private Guide and Private Transportation


The majestic Castle Neuschwanstein in the Bavarian Alps is one of the most visited sites in Germany with more than 2 million tourists every year. With my assistance you will be able to enjoy a hassle-free day without queuing and rushing. On the way to Neuschwanstein we will have time to talk about the eccentric „Fairy Tale King" Ludwig II, the builder of this imposing landmark, his complicated life in Bavaria at the start of the „Second Reich" and his life-long friendship with the composer Richard Wagner. Hiking to the Marienbrücke bridge that you see on the pictures is optional.

Itinerary

The drive from Munich to Neuschwanstein on the "Romantic Road" takes approximately 1. 5 hours. After our arrival in the village of Hohenschwangau underneath the Neuschwanstein castle there is usually time for lunch in an idyllic restaurant at the Alpsee lake before we hike up the hill to the castle. Alternatively we can take a bus, but please note that some walking is inevitable on this tour. Inside the castle you will get a 30 minute tour by a different guide, since the Bavarian Royal Castles Association only allows their own guides to lead tours through the interior of Neuschwanstein. On the way back to Munich we will drive through Austria on a very scenic mountain road, and we will also stop at the baroque monastery of Ettal.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful tour to Neuschwanstein Castle. It was very helpful having Stefan navigate us there and tell us all the history of the place and Ludwig II. No guides can take you inside the castle - it is a quick and sadly profuncyory group tour by an official docent, so having Stefan be able to tell us about the castle in more detail and take us around the grounds was much needed. Thanks Stefan!
