We booked the kings package that included both castles. Very interesting & beautiful castles. Be sure to also do Marienbrucke over Pollat gorge. (amazing view of Neuschwanstein) Easy walk up to Hohenschwangau.

We were not expecting much at this castle, but were pleasantly surprised at its warmth and history. The murals painted on the walls were impressive.

Buy the combo tickets to see this castle as well as Neuschwanstein! Make sure you have comfortable shoes as you enjoy the walk up to the castle! The views are incredible!

You start by climbing many stairs, so may be a bit winded, but by the time you reach the top you know it was worth the climb. From the art work on the walls to the furniture to the stories of King Ludwig 11, you...More

Millions visit Neuschwanstein every year, and most of them overlook this far more historical castle, even if the architecture is less grandiose, it is absolutely worth your time. The tour here is longer, much more informative, and with the right guide, quite funny. Plus, because...More

The interiors of the castles are NOT stroller friendly. It is possible to take a stroller on some of the paths to the castles; other paths have stairs. You can definitely do both castles the same day; the ticket office in... More
