What to Expect
Begin your tour with a train or bus ride from Munich through the German countryside to Fussen. Note that the train is seasonal, offered during January through April and mid-October through November, otherwise you travel by coach. When you arrive, walk up the hill to the castle or opt for a carriage ride. The price of the tour doesn’t include your castle entrance fee, but you can pay it directly to the tour company on the day of your visit. And by booking in advance, you receive skip-the-line access. Visit the castle interiors and towers, and get the photo ops and views of surrounding attractions including a lake, waterfall gorge, and Hohenschwangau Castle. Listen while your guide tells stories about the tragic reign of the “mad” 19th-century Bavarian king who commissioned the building of the castle. Finish the day with a return ride back to Munich.

It was one of the best train/walking tours that I have ever done. We met up with Susanne and the group at Munich main train station. The plan for the whole day was explained thoroughly at the beginning, so you know what to expect. She's very caring and intermittently checked

Thanks Linda for your review! Happy to hear that you had a great time with our guide Jeff! Sorry to hear that you had a rough time getting to the castle, but the castle is pretty much in winter only accesible by train, which can take quite some time, but we very much hope it was worth it!

Had an amazing trip to Neuschwanstein with Radius. For some reason a large group never turned up, meaning that we had a small group of 7. Our guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable about both the castle and about King Ludwig II. I think we had a unicorn of a day with
