Stop At: Schloss Neuschwanstein, Neuschwansteinstrasse 20, 87645 Schwangau, Bavaria Germany

NEUSCHWANSTEIN Castle - dream destination for innumerable travelers from all over the world! No building in Germany is visited more often than Ludwigs most famous fairytale castle, whose construction was begun in 1869.

(Children younger than 18 years - if mentioned at time of booking - get each a reduction of € 13.00 from the guide)

Neuschwanstein was dedicated to Ludwig's favorite composer Richard Wagner; the neo-Romanesque façade is deceptive that the progress made enthusiastic king build it as a high-tech castle.

During the 35-minute castle tour, you will be shown all the King's completed living quarters. On the subsequent 15-minute walk to the exit, you will pass through one of the unfinished floors, after which you will see the unusually modern kitchen of the castle and the planned bathroom.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: Pilgrimage Church of Wies, Wies 12, 86989 Steingaden, Bavaria Germany

On the way between the two castles it would be a pity to pass one of the overwhelming baroque churches. Your guide will provide you with all the worth knowing information, for example about the very popular Wies-Church, or – what we not recommend less – one of the other nearby churches, which are still "secret tips", quiet and peaceful far away from the tourist masses.

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Bad Toelz, Bad Toelz, Upper Bavaria, Bavaria

After less than an hours drive we'll reach the charming Spa Town Bad Tölz, at Isar river. Once it provided Munich with lumber and beer.
Stroll through the historic main road (pedestrian Zone) or take - OPTIONAL - some rides on the nearby summer toboggan run (6.00 €/ride).

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Prien am Chiemsee, Prien am Chiemsee, Upper Bavaria, Bavaria

Before visiting the largest, most expensive and most magnificent castle of the Bavarian "fairytale king" Ludwig II., you can look forward to a 15-minute fun boat trip over Bavaria's largest lake (Prices 2022 for ferryboat round-trip: Adults 9.00 € / Children 6-15 years € 4.50) ... Here in Prien, the charming town with 10,000 inhabitants on the western shore of Lake Chiemsee, there is not only the largest harbour of the lake, but also the boat in which the king took over the island. In the summer months, the oldest steam tram in the world runs between the train station and the port!

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Herrenchiemsee Palace Park, 83209, Herreninsel, Bavaria Germany

Herrenchiemsee Palace is an almost exact replica of Versailles, the residence of the French king Louis XIV. who was very venerated by Ludwig. During the 35-minute guided tour through the interiors, with all the lavish splendour, you will hardly be able to imagine that the king lived here on only 10 days - and on top of that completely alone! (Prices 2022 Herrenchiemsee palace: Adults € 10.00 / Children under 18 years are free!) ... It takes 20 minutes to walk from the pier to the palace, or enjoy optional a horse-drawn carriage ride. Your ticket also includes admission to the most interesting Ludwig II Museum and the "Old Palace", where you can admire, among other things, magnificent baroque rooms of the former monastery. Visit also the kitchen, where the dishes were prepared for the king.

Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes
