We had a guided tour via Grayline thus, we had a guided tour inside the palace. It wasn't a huge one but the interior decorations is just amazing. The courtyard is really beautiful too with the mountains in the background.

The only way to see the inside of this small, but magnificent castle (one of Ludwig's castles) is to take the guided tour. Tours are offered in various languages, so please be sure to ask when purchasing your tickets. Although the castle tour is short,...More

Spent afternoon in palace and grounds, enjoyed immensely. Palace smaller than I expected, but in very good condition and fully furnished. Guided tour very informative. Grounds nice for walk, other smaller, interesting buildings to see. Well worth visit.

Start your tour here on your day to see the castles in this region. It's less crowded in the morning compared to Neuschwanstein. Take time to enjoy the gardens. The interior tour is beautiful but brief. A good start for young kids.

The castle and the accompanying tour do a fantastic job of explaining the life and personality of King Ludwig II. The decor inside is simply stunning, and it's hard to believe that the kings of that era lived like that. This is a good stop...More

While this palace(more a mansion?) Was small it packed in a big punch! Each room is packed to the brim with things to look at and admire. It shows how obsessed the king was with French culture as it is styled just like Versailles with...More

The castle is small. Honestly I enjoyed the gardens more than the inside. The tour is nice and tells you the history behind this castle that was built for a single man.

The grounds and Palace are simply beautiful. The drive here was fabulous as well. I learned a lot about Mad King Ludwig!

Relatively small castle, compared to Neuschwanstein castle, but more beautiful. The inside of the castle is truly worth going. Make sure to spend some time in the outside for the water fountain in the center to start (its not continuous). The rive from Neuschwanstein to...More
