    Perfect the organisation assists starting with us great Teutonic parking (about 5 euros for half day) located near the station of romantic Railway (a must for enthusiasts) that connects the station of Prien DB at the pier. Little line at the ticket counter and short wait to board the boat in twenty minutes leads to the Herreninsel; then another twenty minutes to walk to the Castle and the Nice Park, very well taken care of. Wanting to join the guided tour in Italian (40 minutes) we resign ourselves to a wait of almost two hours; accessing views is excellently run with an airport-style. The Interior has exclusively documentary and historical value, since among all this French-like art style not bad loser if it sees so. A lot of sympathy for the unhappy sovereign immersed in his dreams a bit (a lot) crazy. Comes out with a bit of melancholy.

    Although the day was gloomy, visiting this castle we loved. Many congratulations to the young guide who escorted us, explaining the history of the castle with a lot of passion and making himself available to satisfy our curiosity. The island then is a true spectacle ... We have purchased a card costs 44 euros per couple that is 14 days; with this card you can visit some 40 imperial palaces including the castles of Ludwig. It's just convenient.

  • Very nice destination to explore. Visit not only the palace, but also take a walk around the island.
  • Take a boat and visit this splendid caprice of a mad (?) king!
  • Very good from outside... Amazing from inside. Do take the information tour ! It is worth it ! Photography not allowed inside...
  • Take a boat out to the castle on the island. The tour is good (no photos allowed) and the grounds are nice to walk around.
  • Nice castle even if it's not done. The ticket includes a guided tour, so it's worth the money. The courtyard is very big, has very interesting fountains and a great view of the lake.
