It takes a bit to get to, either drive or get a bus to the car park and catch a shuttle bus or walk 20 minutes up the steep hill. (many people catch the bus up, and then walk down). Once you're there the walk...More

Parking is 2 euros, the bus is 3,30 euros/person and the castle is 12 euros/person. It was a good stop and the castle had awesome views. We managed to arrive on the royal stroll day which means we were able to walk around the grounds...More

The castle was beautiful and I'm glad we got to see it, but you had to park for a fee a ways from the castle and then take a bus up the hill for another cost before entering the castle grounds. You could walk up...More

Very beautiful castle. We were unfortunate in that it was a very humid, misty day so we couldn't enjoy any views going up the mountain or from the castle itself. We took an internal tour and our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The tour felt...More

It is totally worth a visit to see the castle from below and to see the view from the castle itself. This is not a place to spend a day, it doesn't take long to see the grounds and the inside tour just OK.

Being in Stuttgart for only a few days, we weren't able to get to Neuschwanstein. This was a beautiful castle with magnificent views of the surrounding area. The walk up is a little steep, but there is also a bus to take you up if...More

The castle is impressive by its amazing geographical position and the quality of preservation. The interior can be seen by booking guided visits. A historical gem for those who want to find more about the Hohenzollern family.

What a great castle! Loads to explore and the guided tour was well worth it. We tagged along with a school class being shown around. The guide did the tour in German but our handbook in English explained it all anyway. Expect to spend between...More

This castle sits atop a hill with grand 360 degree views over the country side. The home of Prussian royalty going back 100's of years. We took the afternoon English tour which was very interesting and informative. Great castle with good feature rooms. You park...More

There are plenty of taxis available and I have seen many buses going to a from the attractions. If you do not see a taxi at the train station, look for flyer or advertisements for them. They are usually very easy to find.

We have spent quite a few winters and falls in Germany. We love it and are from Chicago. The attractions are not all open, but a lot of them are and are not as busy. That's one reason we love it so much.
