    Schloss Neuschwanstein
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Visit the popular Neuschwanstein Castle on this guided, 3 1/2-hour tour from Hohenschwangau. This “skip-the-line” ticket allows for quick access to the inside of the medieval masterpiece for a guided walking tour. Neuschwanstein Castle was one of three palaces built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria and would eventually become the inspiration for the castle in Disney’s movie Sleeping Beauty. After the tour, enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride down to the village of Hohenschwangau. Then take a leisurely stroll around scenic Lake Alpsee and enjoy the rest of your day.
