The famous Neuschwanstein castle sits picturesquely at the foot of the Bavarian Alps about a 1:45 drive from Munich. Built by “Mad” King Ludwig II, this fairy tale castle is the most popular day trip around Munich, and for good reason: the backdrop of lakes and the Alps are seemingly out of a story book.
We believe the best way to explore Neuschwanstein is to take in the countryside at the same time. This is sure to be one of the most enjoyable days of your vacation!
