A 19th-century palace, Schloss Hohenschwangau served as the childhood home of King Ludwig II. The castle was built on the site of a ruined fortress and quickly became a favorite hunting residence for the royal family. The interior of the palace contains numerous grand halls. They've largely been left in the state the royals would have enjoyed, with ornate period furniture and lavish wall murals. Many sections of the castle are open to visitors, but you need to make prior arrangements for a guided tour. You can arrive for your tour in royal style: A horse carriage starts at the ticket office in the village below the palace. Check online for tour options.

Το επισκεφθήκαμε σε πολύ καλό καιρό. Αλλα μπήκαμε μέσα με ξεναγό που μας εξήγησε τόσα πολλά και είχα τόσα πολλά αντικείμενα που ήταν πολύτιμα. more »The visited in very good weather. But we went in with tour guide explained to us so much and had so many objects that were valuable.

Is an additional trip to the castle of Neuschwanstein, but would serve easy for a main attraction. The castle is very beautiful and has a great view!
Even though Neuschwastein Castle is more famous, it's older sibling is also stunning! It sit beautifully atop a hill, just an easy walk from the ticket office. Views from the castle are amazing! Castle itself is amazing and full of riches! As you wait for your tour to start look for the other entrance and or the kitchen display at the basement of the coffee shop. There's also a little church on the way to the castle, not to be missed. Always take the audio tour guide as the tour guide is just to lead from one room to the other. Pay attention to the fine details of the paintings and of the ornaments, furniture and especially of the gifts given from royalties to the Bavarian King and his family. Don't hesitate to go also at the small sister sitting so graciously atop the rock across the road.
We enjoyed this tour more than Neuschwanstein - it was more relaxed and the access is much easier. We took the live English tour, and the guide was fluent and interesting. She also tried to interact with the tour group, too, which helped make it more personable. We still would have liked more time to enjoy the castle, but it was a satisfying experience. Apart from the tour, the grounds around the castle are fairly accessible and you can wander around at your own pace. There are nice walking trails just outside the castle walls, too.
Amazing castle, really well worth a visit. Expect to do a lot of walking to make your way around the caste and nearby town. Make sure you buy your ticket before making your way up to the castle, and you will have to visit during your booked 'slot' which is controlled via an automatic gate. The tour will be given by a real person who will answer questions but be aware that they will be working to a tight schedule. Tours are in English and German as far as I know (there may be other languages too), and the language of the tour will be stated when you book it. The most tours are in German and you will want to be able to understand the tour guide as you will have to stay with you group and move at their speed. There are also no written descriptions of anything within the castle. Photography is forbidden within the castle but you can take photos out of the windows.
This is an iconic site for Germany. One of the most famous castles in the world, seen on many ads. Parking is paid and is about a 20-minute walking distance from the castle itself, down in the valley. If you are not up to climbing the hill on your own, there are horse carriage wagons that can take you up where cars are not allowed. There is a stunning viewing plaza in front of the building, where a view of the whole valley can be enjoyed unobstructed. On the other side of the plaza runs the wild river with its infamous waterfall, which was the main reason the castle was built there by Ludwig II. Walking behind and around, a well asphalted pathway takes you to the short but high above the river bridge from where the castle exposes its charming backside. To get inside and wonder through its chambers, you need to buy a ticket. And you won't be sorry for doing that.
The castle look awesome from the foothills! Didn't get to go near the castle as it wasn't included in our tour itinerary. Might worth a visit if you want a different view of Neuschwanstein Castle.
