Meet & Greet

Departure to Neuschwanstein Castle

09:30

Wieskirche or Rottenbuch

The drive to Neuschwanstein takes us through the picturesque Bavarian pre-alpine landscape and past two of the most beautiful Rococo churches in Bavaria. If time permits, we will make a short stop at one of them.

10:40

Schwangau / Neuschwanstein Castle

As soon as we've arrived in Schwangau, the first thing I will do is pick up the tickets (at least 1.5 hours before tour start). There is a special skip-the-line-entrance for official tour guides so that we don't have to queue. Afterwards there are 2 options to get to the castle entrance:

a) Bus ride to Mary's Bridge (10 min.) with the best view of the castle - then a walk to the castle (approx. 15 min.)

b) Ascent to the castle (approx. 25 min.) - optionally further ascent to the Mary's Bridge (15 min.) and back to the castle

Then I will take you to the guided tour (35 minutes and 10 more minutes on your own) and collect you at the exit. The way back to the parking is a walk of about 20 minutes downhill.

Onward journey to Linderhof Palace (ca. 50 minutes)

14:30

Linderhof Palace

Linderhof Palace is the smallest palace of King Ludwig II, but at the same time the only one that was completed. Picturesquely embedded in the Graswang Valley, Ludwig took refuge here in the dream world of the French Baroque and the fairytale Orient, in stark contrast to Neuschwanstein, where the Middle Ages were the model. A neo-baroque jewel awaits you here in a fascinating landscape park.

Onward journey to Oberammergau (20 min.)

16:20

Oberammergau

Although Oberammergau is world famous for the Passion Play, much of its original charm has been retained. Get to know the history of the picturesque village and the Passion Play, the colorful fresco-painted facades and the famous wood carvers on a short tour.
