  • If at all possible, reserve your tickets in advance. The lines at the ticket office can be long. The castle tour is amazing! It is a monument to extravagance in the most beautiful setting. We had an audio tour in English that was very informative. I wish the group size was slightly smaller, but then I understand that fewer people would gain admittance. The entry procedure is very efficient. You have a ticket with a printed time and when the time shows on the board, you scan your ticket and enter.

  • Magnificent and Beautiful Fairytale Castle! The view from the bottom of the hill and the bridge will get you the best pictures of the castle that inspired Disney. There is a 20 minute hike to the top of the hill for good walkers and a little bit longer for those with a slight stroll pace. The tickets to tour the castle are sold at the bottom of the hill; groups rates give you better prices. Once you have caught your breath at the base of the castle, there is a lovely restaurant/hotel that prepares traditional German fare. But be sure to save your appetite for the fried quarks that the vendor sells outside of the restaurant. After you have filled your belly, head up to the castle and join the queue for the tour. I am not going to give away what's inside, but it is worth the tour. After touring, gingerly walk down the hill and stop at one of the shops on the way to your car.

  • The castle is really impressive from the outside. It is amazing to see the castle in the middle of the landscape. The castle was never finished, so the interior can be disappointing if you do not know the history. No pictures are allowed inside the castle. It is highly recommended to book the ticket in advance. The tour is very organized and if you are late you might just loose it. There is a small coffee place inside available for a quick bite.

  • You will either need to drive or take a bus to this location. There is a very large parking lot next to the lake, which is a great view and great for pictures as well. At the bottom of the hill there are a couple of cafes and gift stores. You can reach the main castle at the top by either walking or purchasing a ticket for a one way horse ride. It is a walkable distance if you are in a decent physical condition. At the castle, you can purchase another ticket (at the bottom) to enter and take tours. Be aware that more carriage rides end around 4pm as well as the closing of the castle.

  • As expected, this castle is beautiful! It was definitely a place I wanted to visit, but I certainly plan to return to it. I was amazed by how well everything was preserved and utilized. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and was kind enough to answer questions from the group. She was also very patient with the children in the group. I would most certainly recommend this castle if you are in the area!
