It was really a highlight to see this castle of Ludwig. He has spent there a lot of time finishing the grotta. It was really a perfect detour and a must-see in this area. The only finished castle and made us understand this king a bit better. Really a dream world and a highlight of our trip. It is definitely... More

Small Alpine castle of Ludwig II, known as Mad King Ludwig. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in southern Germany and worth the trip. It is a moderate to long walk from parking up to the castle. Ludwig had some grand tastes indeed. I haven't seen this much gold leaf and ostentation design in any castle we've... More

Nice day trip from Munich. Prettiest of all King Ludwig ll castles and his favorite. Tour is 30 minutes. Beautiful location near the Alps. Visited via day trip thru Gray Line tours from Munich which included a stop in Oberammergau and afternoon at Neuschwanstein Castle.

Maybe you feel you saw Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Palaces so why bother with this little one? Well you would be wrong! It's totally worth a visit. The exterior is beautiful. The interior is unexplainable and since no photographs are allowed it will remain so! The gardens which are mirrored after Versailles would be lovely to see in summer. King Ludwig... More

The smallest of King Ludwig II castles, this is packed with ornate and fascinating details like the piano/harmonica musical instrument, the tri-mirror in the rooms that give unique perspectives, the dining table that moves down to the kitchen then up with food, and the endless mirror hall. Very much worth the visit.

Small palace with very good tour from the guide. Unfortunately you can't take photos inside of all the beautiful intricate rooms. Lovely gardens but in winter the fountains are not operational and are covered up for the frost as are sone of the plants. Probably a much prettier place in summer time although no doubt much busier too

Beautiful place. We caught a nice clear day for November. Gardens and fountains were all closed. Tour was good but pretty short. Off season so some areas closed and maintenance being done so that took away from the enjoyment to a certain extent. Still worth the trip by far.

I first saw this castle as a 14 year old and it has never left my memories. I have always wanted to return and this was the year. It does not disappoint. The castle is small, but the scale of the decorations and King Ludwig II's imagination are epic. There are only nine rooms but they are an amazing and... More
