1. From Munich: Neuschwanstein Castle Full-Day Trip by Van

Spend a day in picturesque Bavaria with this van tour from Munich. Spend the day enjoying a drive on the Romantic Road in the Bavarian Alps. On the way to the castle of Neuschwanstein, you’ll pass through old, quaint Bavarian villages and scenic countryside. When you reach Neuschwanstein you’ll be taken on a guided tour of the castle, which was built in the 19th century in the Romanesque Revival style. The palace sits on a craggy hill commanding views of the village of Hohenschwangau below. From the Marienbridge you’ll have breathtaking views of the castle. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a royal retreat and in honor of Richard Wagner, the composer. After the death of Ludwig II, the palace was opened to the public in 1886, and now hosts more than 1.3 million visitors each year. Neuschwanstein has appeared in numerous movies and was also used as a model for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland. You’ll walk through a lovely gorge featuring cascades and waterfalls. On the way back you’ll stop at the UNESCO World Heritage Church of Wieskirch built in the 17th century.

What people are saying about Schwangau

Had the best day with Mario. Turned out to be a private tour for the four of us. It was one of the highlights of the trip. Mario was very friendly and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed getting to see some of the smaller towns and off the beaten path things. Going to the cheese farm at the end was so amazing. The food was delicious and the views were amazing. Next time I'm in the area I'll be contacting Mario again.

Mario is an excellent guide. Well-travelled, friendly and passionate about showing us the sights of Neuschwanstein and the Bavarian countryside. We enjoyed the churches and towns along the trip immensely. The tour size is small as well and was just right.

The tour and schedule was perfect. Mario was great and very able to work with our situation. The stops in the outer towns were very nice and offered a different view of the region.

Mario was knowledgeable and fun! Great stops to break up the drive, interesting churches and amenities available. Excellent door to door service!

A very rewarding day, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.
