Itinerary

 

This tour departs from Füssen at 9:00 a.m. and at 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays, May through October.

 

NEUSCHWANSTEIN is Germany's most famous castle, and probably the most famous in the world.

It is perched atop Swan Rock at the base of the Alps' Mount Tegelberg, overlooking the village of Hohenschwangau.

Neuschwanstein was built by King Ludwuig II of Bavaria, and is the most imaginatiove of three castles he built.

Neuschwanstein was constructed in the period from 1869 to 1876, and incorporated the latest technologies of the day, including central heating and electricity.

Traditional view

 

When we arrive at Hohenschwangau we change to a shuttle to go up to Marienbrücke (Mary's Bridge) sitting high above the Poellat Gorge.  From here you can take the best pictures of Neuschwanstein possible without a helicopter.

From there we walk downhill for our inside guided tour, conducted in English by a Neuschwanstein expert.

Neuschwanstein was designed for Ludwig by Christian Jank, a theatrical set designer, though Ludwig himself is said to have played an extremely active role.

Main entrance

 

Marvel at the architecture, opulence, and stunning views. The castle is lavishly decorated in traditional religious and imperial themes and, especially, with images of scenes from Richard Wagner's operas.  Singers' Hall occupies all of the fourth floor of the castle.

After the guided tour you have free time to explore the historic kitchen on the ground floor and the grounds.  You can shop for souvenirs or grab a snack.

We take a horse carriage to ride back down to Hohenschwangau, and then return to Füssen by about 12:30 p.m..
