  • We were stunned to see the only of Ludwig’s castles we had missed in previous years. Well worth the trip. Fun ride on the ferry to the island and we took the guided tour of the buildings. Very conveni...  more »
  • a great castle with beautiful grounds. A great guide with exciting and interesting details about the King and the edification. Amazing facilities and, however, then the shell. Must be seen. A trip worth.

  • He was the last of the castles of Ludwig we visited. Copy of Versailles (missing the side wings though) and homage to the Sun King, the Hall of mirrors is astounding. Very nice also the Museum, Lake you cross by boat to reach the island on which stands the Castle and the forest that follow. Interesting to see the unfinished, the mechanism under the dining table and pool. I want to make a great compliment to our guide, who has managed to involve the kids in our group of Italians. Even here, as in other Castle of Ludwig, the entrance is set in beautifully, with an accuracy of absolute time! To see!

  • Without doubt, this is one of the three best King Ludwig's castles had been built in Bayern, in which date back to late 18th century. Even though the interior part had not been completely decoration, but it still worth for a visit.
  • Let me just save your the time. It’s a copy of Versailles, and you have to do a tour, which lasts about (for us at least) 15 maybe 20 minutes and every room was basically, “this is an exact copy of Versailles.” Not to mention you can only walk through a few, even though around 50 rooms were finished. All of the fountains were not only not running but completely covered, and when I asked why nobody could give me a good answer. When we went to buy our tickets, the woman at the wondow did not believe that my boyfriend could speak English and tried to put us on a german only tour (I can’t speak german.) To make things even better the guy driving the boat on the way over was clearly DRUNK and making his own schedule different from those online and in the panflit on the boat. Parking is also 4€ as well as every time you have to go to the bathroom it’s .30-.50€ because you’re on and island and can’t go anywhere else. You are not allowed to take photos at any part of the castle or to bring your backpack in unless you want to pay for a locker or leave it hanging at your own risk. I would not in any way recommend going at any time other than the height of tourist season otherwise you won’t even see the gardens for the same price. It was a huge waste of money to deal with incompitant people and a rundown illy tended to castle.
  • Very beautiful inside the palace. Worth to see.
  • My first time to visit there, the PALACE is definitely amazing 😍
  • Ludwig II left the palace unfinished as his building projects emptied state treasure, and he only stayed ten days here before his sudden death. His story is as fascinating as the place. The guided tour is really worth doing.
