Neuschwanstein Castle , Hohenschwangau Reviews

  • Top tier experience with long lasting memories. I recommend arriving early to beat the crowds. 8:30 am is sufficient. 1st tour is 9am but your ticket will be for 1 or 1.5 hrs after check in. Don't worry!, its perfect to ride bus to the top and go to the bridge for the attached pic. You can visit the other sites and make an entire day of this or settle for .5 day and still be satisfied!!! Enjoy!!!

  • Really beautiful place to go see! The walk up to the castle is not bad but can be hard for older people. They offer carriages but the wait can be long. The tour of the castle is definitely worth it as it is incredible inside. A little tough with a small child as they have to be carried and cannot really run around and touch things. If you do have a small child bring headphones, as this will allow you to carry your child and listen to the tour guide. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

  • This is a beautiful tourist attraction. The castle is kept in pristine condition. The area around the castle is enough reason to come here too. In any season the surrounding forest lake and streams are a marvel to behold. The tour itself is rather short, but worth the added expense of going into the castle as opposed to just touring the grounds. Vegetarians and vegans beware! Although there are quite a number of places to eat here (ranging from nice sit down restaurants to outdoor stands), the food is mainly local cuisine heavy on various dead animals and cheese. I packed a lunch from home and found a lovely spot to eat on the trail leading up to the castle. This site is definitely worth a visit and if you are in the area I highly recommend you drop by.

  • I think the castle has a beautiful exterior and an interesting story surrounding it regarding Ludwig II. With all that taken into consideration, the fact that only about 10% of the rooms were ever finished, and that it's a massive tourist spot that will require a full day trip, it's hard to say it was worth the visit. I'd highly recommend that you buy your tickets ahead of time even though there is a small fee. This will make the experience a ton better and might have changed my view of visiting it. If you are here, definitely don't skip the Hohenschwangau Castle. There's a ton of history and artifacts that make it a great stop (plus you're probably already there, so why not swing by).

  • The seemingly only public restroom around the ticket center was closed when we arrived to pick up our early tickets, but there are alternatives available if you ask nicely. Walking up to the castle is much faster than the 40min they announce at the info, so you can take it easy. The guided tours are quite short, too short for my taste - you don't have a lot of time to look at the rooms you visit in detail, which is a pity because the castle itself is really quite beautiful. So, our experience wasn't perfect, but well worth the visit!
