Hi all, please tell me the best way to get to Neuschwanstain castle from Munich? Does any public transport go from Munich and back or should I buy a tour? Thank in advance for your responce.
you can get there by train and have plenty of time to visit both castles and the small town. I prepaid a tour which was great as it is a long ride and you don´t have to worry about stops. We had a great guide that explained where to find the best items in the small town, where and what to eat, he also talked about the history of the royal family and both castles as we walked up to neuschwanistein (a bit of a hike) but they also have horses or cars to get there. The castle sells specific entry times as the tours inside the castle are strictly guided so it was nice that the time depended on someone else to get us there on time, he also explained how to get to the bridge which is where you have the most amazing views of the castle (that´s anothe hike) Either decision that you take, be prepared for a workout! Hope you have an amazing time, it is so beautiful you will not want to leave!
