Superb. Beautiful and interesting. Combine it with the nearby (and related) castle Hohenschwangau and a stroll around the tourist town Fuessen.
Visiting the castles is a full day trip out of Munich. There is no way around it.
The tourist infrastructure is managed poorly. When we left around 5:30 pm, there were no taxis whatsoever. And buses only came every thirty minutes in subfreezing weather, even though there was a mob of tourists waiting. People couldn’t fit into the buses and were left behind in the cold, hoping they’d be one of the lucky ones to squeeze into the next bus. I don’t want to diminish the castles and scenery but many of us left with a sour taste in our mouth.
The mandatory tours sucked. They were too crowded and rushed, and the tour guides didn’t project well or speak English well. We felt like the people running the operation nearly ruined our experience.over 4 years ago
