Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This sightseeing tour of the Bavarian heartland and royal palace adventure begins in central Munich. Meet and greet the tour guide and hop on board an air-conditioned coach. It’s a 1.5-hour drive southwest to the village of Hohenschwangau.

To begin the tour, select from two possibilities. Take a guided bike tour through the lush meadows and forests surrounding Hohenschwangau, stopping for a refreshing swim in crisp, clear Lake Alpsee. The other option is to hike or take a cable car up Mount Tegelberg, or visit Hohenschwangau Castle, a majestic Gothic palace that was the childhood home of King Ludwig II of Bavaria.

Then, the highlight of the tour is a visit to Neuschwanstein Castle, a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace nestled on top of a rugged hill high above the village of Hohenschwangau, near Füssen, in southwest Bavaria. This stunning fairy-tale palace was the inspiration for Disney’s 'Sleeping Beauty' castle and it’s one of the most popular of all the castles or palaces in Europe, drawing 1.4 million visitors each year. 

Enjoy a walking tour of this medieval masterpiece. Explore rooms like Minstrel’s Hall, the Byzantine Throne Room, and many more. Learn about the castle’s architect, King Ludwig II, and explore the terraces, grounds, and gardens outside as well.

The tour ends with a return trip to central Munich.

What an amazing tour!! Cannot recommend enough. My two cents: take the optional bike tour instead of the second castle. The photos you will obtain from the bike ride will be well worth it. The tour guides were so smart, and funny, and made sure everyone was taken care of. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

Natalia was an OUTSTANDING guide! Highly knowledgeable, and very helpful. I opted to do the bike tour instead of the Hohenschwangau castle tour with the Neuschwanstein castle tour. That was very fun. Even got to witness a marriage proposal at the foot of the Alps! Made the decision to HIKE the distance up the mountain to the castle...in the rain! Definitely not for the out of shape...but, I finally made it up! No visit to Munich is complete without this tour. I learned a LOT about beautiful Bavaria, and enjoyed experiencing the Autobahn.

Beware that this trip is not as advertised. We picked this trip over others because we understood a bike ride would be involved - this was not the case. Although we were very disappointed, the day we did have was lovely. Our tour guide was brilliant and the sights are well worth a visit.

Craig and Ryan I hope I got their names right from Mike's Bikes Tours were amazing. Also, thank you to the wonderful bus driver who picked up travel goodies for us :- From the history lesson and the side bar's, these guys know what they're talking about. The bike ride was perfect activity after the bus ride. For those concerned about walking up the hill, it's doable for most everyone, it just might take some people a little longer than others. I had an amazing time. I just wish I had more time in Munich so I could have participated in the other tours offered by Mike's Bikes.

This tour was amazing. The guides were awesome. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is going to be Munich. The bike ride was breathtaking. The castles were really cool. The guys were able to explain German custom and the best place to get any souvenirs and food. Thank you to our two guides

This tour is great. Our tour guides were very fun, engaging, and knowledgeable. Our tour guide from the previous day said to definitely do the bike ride instead of seeing Hohenschwangau. My wife and I were planning on doing the bike ride anyways, but his recommendation was definitely correct. The view of the castles from the bike ride are exceptional!!! The restaurant that we had lunch at was very good as well. If you are in the Munich area this trip is a must do.
