Spend the day in a fairy tale during this full-day tour of the Bavarian heartland from Munich. Travel to the mountaintop Neuschwanstein Castle (Walt Disney's inspiration for 'Sleeping Beauty'), and take a tour of the popular attraction. Visit Linderhof Castle, one of the palaces built by "Mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria, and the picturesque village of Oberammergau. Hotel pickup, private transport, lunch, all entry fees, and a return train ticket to Munich are all included in the cost of the tour (based on a maximum group size of 8).
At 7:15am, be picked up at your Munich hotel by a comfortable minivan that seats up to eight people. Hop in, with just your private group, and drive for about an hour to the base of the Bavarian Alps. Spend an hour at Linderhof Castle, the smallest of the three palaces built by "Mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria, exploring the grounds and the romantic gardens with their water fountain.
After a short drive, arrive at the lovely village of Oberammergau, and enjoy some free time for lunch, sightseeing, or shopping. In the afternoon, drive past the picturesque Alpsee on your way to visit the popular castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Bypass any crowds outside with your skip-the-line tickets, and enjoy a guided tour of the castles. Around 15:30pm, board a train from the village of Fuessen back to Munich to conclude the tour.
