a day-trip from Munich with a private driver-guide through the beautiful Bavarian countryside


CURRENTLY THE CASTLE IS CLOSED DUE TO CORONA!!
If you visit Bavaria, you don't want to miss the probably most famous castle in the world! We will drive through the scenic Bavarian countryside, where Alpine mountains form the background. Our first stop will be Oberammergau with its artfully decorated houses and famous for the passion play and wood carving. After a stroll through this charming village we drive on to King Ludwig's fairy tale castle Neuschwanstein. Situated on a rocky hill we can either walk up the 900 ft. path or let a horse-carriage or bus take us there. Either way, the spectacular view and site will leave you awestruck. After a guided tour of the castle and many picture taking opportunities we can visit the pilgrimage church in the meadows: Wieskirche, one of the finest examples of Bavarian Rococo and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Please note: my tour price already includes the entrance and reservation fee to the palace

Itinerary

I will pick you up at your hotel in Munich. After a ride through the scenic Bavarian countryside we will have several stops, where I will show you idyllic villages, churches and of course Neuschwanstein castle. At the end of the day I will take you back to your hotel. A short lunch break is included

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION***The castle is currently being renovated. Some rooms may have scaffolding. As Neuschwanstein is one of the most visited sites in Germany sometimes tickets can be sold out even months in advance. Due to the Passion Play in Oberammergau in summer 2020 the tour might have to be adapted to meet the changed circumstances***

A Recent Review of this tour

Simone hits all the marks, which qualify her as a five-star guide: knowledgable, personal, punctual, friendly, and well-spoken (in multiple languages). In addition, Simone is a safe driver and possesses a delightful sense of humor. Simone superbly fulfilled the tour's agenda and allowed us to personalize the experience according to our interests. I would embark on any tour led by Simone and would also recommend the Neuschwanstein tour she provided us.
