Know More about this tour

This glorious folly was built in the 19th century by the famed "mad" King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by myth and who himself became a legend. The shimmering white towers of the castle among the clouds are instantly recognizable to many and is the inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, and is also famous as the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Castle. To visit it is to step inside a fairy tale.

Your guide will tell the engaging story of King Ludwig's renowned and tragic reign, of his turbulent times, and of the obsession that drove him to build his fantasy castle in the mountains and ultimately destroyed him. Take an exclusive internal tour of the king's private chambers with a specialist castle guide.

Entrance fees to the Neuschwanstein Castle are not included. A supplement of 14 euros (per adult ) is payable direct in the tour office where you check in for the tour. This guided tour includes advance booking so you can skip long lines and gain quick access to the Neuschwanstein Castle. Don't waste time waiting in lines on vacation!

    Excellent tour; well-organised, with an extremely knowledgable guide. However - it was quite a long day.

    This is the 2nd trip we went on with Radius tours and they were both really well organised. The other one was a trip to Salzburg. This trip to the castle was originally going to be by train (station really close to the Radius tours office) but I think there was some kind of scheduled problem with the trains that day so a coach had been organised instead. It was lovely to travel through the Bavarian countryside. The castle was amazing. Inside was like a fairy-tale. As a fan of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang I am so please I did not miss this experience.

    We learned so much about the castle and the “Mad King” who built it. Perfect English speaker who was very helpful and entertaining. It takes a full day for this tour.

    Just stunning. Well worth the trip from Munich. Tour was well organised. Train most of the way from/to Munich. Make sure you walk up to ‘the bridge’ lookout for the ‘postcard’ photo.

    Michelle and Charlie were Great Tour Guides! Must add this to your list for a day trip. Even though it was busy, it was manageable and worth taking this trip to this castle. The tour guides have tons of information on the history of this castle, the bus is clean and comfortable, tour guides speak great English and they are very informative with the schedule and details of the tour!
