Hohenschwangau

4.2
Castles · History Museums · Beaches
A picturesque village nestled in a green valley on the shores of a lake, Hohenschwangau receives nearly two million visitors every year. Hohenschwangau tourism thrives thanks to two fairytale-like 19th-century castles, both built for Bavarian kings. Dotted with guesthouses, hotels, restaurants, and souvenir shops, the village serves as a gateway to these former royal palaces, one of which is said to have inspired Walt Disney. Sightseeing in Hohenschwangau often includes a visit to a museum housed in an old hotel. Whether you decide to hike up to the castles or take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride, you will get to enjoy the sweeping views of the lakeside village and its Alpine surroundings. Plan your vacation with our Germany trip website and discover the best things to do in Hohenschwangau.

Where to stay in Hohenschwangau

Hohenschwangau offers limited lodging options, including four-star and three-star hotels, cozy pensions, apartments, and campsites. The nearby town of Fussen boasts a greater number of choices for overnight stay, but Hohenschwangau has the advantage of being closer to the area's two star attractions, the castles, while farther away from the tourist crowds.
