Escape into a fairytale kingdom on this magical 9 hour day tour!
Travelling from Salzburg, passing breathtaking alpine scenery, your private royal castle tour takes you to both residences of King Ludwig II. – Hohenschwangau as well as Neuschwanstein!
Stroll through the neo gothic palace of Hohenschwangau, former summer and hunting residence of the royal Bavarian family, admiring the starry sky ceiling and murals in the oriental room furnished by Ludwig II’s father Maximilian II with exotic travel souvenirs.
Then head to the close by Neuschwanstein Castle, the famous fairytale castle built by the legendary King Ludwig after his ascension to the throne. This dream palace in Gothic Revival style has a most dramatic setting on top of a rocky ridge surrounded by the majestic Alps and pristine Bavarian Forests inspiring Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. Due to its stunning location and unusual architecture it is considered as one of the most picturesque castles in the World attracting more than a million visitors a year.
From the parking lot you either walk about 15 min up to the castle or take the horse carriage (please note: price not included, long waiting time during high season). Touring the castle lasts about 40 minutes. On our return trip there is a stop at the Wieskirche, a beautiful pilgrimage church and UNESCO Heritage Site.
We operate our tours either in a minivan (up to 8 passengers) or Mercedes limousine (up to 3 passengers) and are happy to arrange your private tour according to personal interests and individual needs.
