This 10-hour adventure transports you from the bustling city to a world of enchantment, exploring two of the Mad King's fairy tale palaces.
Your guide will greet you at your Munich hotel or a prearranged meeting point and drive you through picturesque farmlands and into the German Alps. Get ready to capture stunning views during the roughly 2-hour drive. Upon arrival in Hohenschwangau, take time to explore the quaint shops, serene Alpsee lake, and the charming Hohenschwangau Castle grounds.
Climb up towards Neuschwanstein with breathtaking views along the way. A shuttle bus is available for those with mobility issues. Before entering the palace, visit Marienbrücke, a suspension bridge with breathtaking views of both the palace and the surrounding landscape. Enjoy a tour of the palace's lavish interior, with time for souvenir shopping and a break afterwards.
Next, visit Linderhof, the smallest and only completed palace of King Ludwig II, inspired by the Palace of Versailles. Take a short tour of the palace's interior and wander through its stunning gardens, considered one of the finest examples of historicist garden design. Your guide will share the story of King Ludwig II, his eccentricity, and the mystery surrounding his death.
After completing the tour, your guide will return you to Munich and accompany you back to your hotel or a prearranged drop-off point.
You will be picked up directly from your hotel or a prearranged meeting point. At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at your hotel or, if you wish to remain in the city, your guide can give you recommendations for further exploration.
