by Gray Line Munich Duration 10h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is A$87

Step into the pages of a Bavarian storybook as you venture to the fairytale castles of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Palace. Discover the magic of these royal estates, dreamed up by reclusive King Ludwig II, as you admire the architecture that inspired Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Hop on board a comfortable, air-conditioned bus in Munich and set off into the German countryside. Arrive at Linderhof Palace, a spectacular Rococo estate set amid manicured formal gardens and fountains. Inspired by Versailles, this gem-like castle features its own Hall of Mirrors. Hear about King Ludwig's visions of grandeur, and why this castle was the only one the “Swan King” ever saw completed.

Continue on to the town of Oberammergau, a jewel-box village perched in the Bavarian Alps. Stop to shop, stroll, and grab a bite to eat if you'd like before the drive to Neuschwanstein Castle. This incredible Romanesque Revival palace balances high atop a rugged hill, on the former ruins of 2 mediaeval castles. Spend a full 4 hours at the castle, where King Ludwig imagined himself living out his luxurious version of a Middle Ages lifestyle, before beginning the journey back to Munich.

4.5 out of 5

I was disappointed that we didn’t get to spend more than 1/2 hour in Oberammergau. There was hardly any time to do anything. I think it should be an hour. Also it was in print that the tickets to the castles was 23 euros, but it was 25 euros.

Full day, packed to see three spots. Just enough time to see the tours and that’s all. Schedule was very tight. Guide was informative and knowledgeable. Great that other guests were punctual too.

I have to say this was a pretty amazing experience overall! The guides on the buss were AMAZING and I feel like I got the best of my trip having done this as part of it. A heads up for the castle and palace stops, there is no photography (flash or not) allowed in either stop. The only reason it wasn’t a 5 star review was the posting for it is a bit confusing. It mentions that a guided tour of the castle and palace are included, but then in the exclusion it mentions admission fees. Once on the bus you have to pay an additional cash fee for admission to both buildings. I would still say it’s totally worth it but unexpected. Overall it was a wonderful day and I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
