Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

Neuschwanstein Castle the nineteenth-century palace is located in such an unbelievable location and it is one of the most visited castles in Germany. I was mesmerized by the amazing view of this castle located on a hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria. The journey to the castle was easy and taking a train to Füssen is one of the options. Once arrived at Füssen train station, there will be buses that would take visitors to the village of Hohenschwangau with the name of the stop known as ‘Hohenschwangau Neuschwanstein Castles’.

Upon arrival at the village, there were several options to reach the top of the castle hill. Visitors could either take a steep 30-40 minutes (around 1.5 km) walk from the ticket centre to the castle, by shuttle bus or a horse-drawn carriage which is a much more expensive option than the shuttle bus. Nevertheless, the bus is one of the fastest options. Other than the somewhat disappointing gloomy and drizzling weather during my visit, it was a great experience to see the real castle and the surrounding of it. However, the entrance to the castle is only by guided tour and it was a relatively short one that lasted approximately 30 minutes. Due to the short and rushed tour, I did not enjoy much exploring the interior of the castle. I am sure tourist that had travelled all the way just for this castle would wish to see more of it.

    1. Yes! It is lovely except the interior tour of the castle was rather dull.

  2. The castle looks amazing with all the fog though! It gives it a completely mysterious atmosphere.
