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 option. At Füssen train station, there will be buses that would take you to the village of Hohenschwangau with the name of the stop known as ‘Hohenschwangau Neuschwanstein Castles’.
Upon arrival at the village, there are several options to reach the top of the castle hill. You could either take a steep 30-40 minutes (around 1.5 km) walk from the ticket centre to the castle, shuttle bus or a horse-drawn carriage which is a much more expensive option than taking the bus. I took the bus instead because it is also one of the fastest option. 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 would really love to see more of it especially I have travelled all the way there just for the castle!
