Mysterious king, palatial castles: this day trip takes you to two of the castles of King Ludwig II – a legend of his time and ours.
"I want to remain an eternal mystery to myself and others", declared King Ludwig II – and he did just that. The monarch was a myth even during his own lifetime. A reclusive dreamer who never wanted his castles and palaces to be shared with others. Well, that's one wish we aren't able to grant him – on this tour you'll see not one but two of his incredible refuges.
You'll start with Linderhof Palace, before stopping off for photos and a little retail therapy in Oberammergau, known for its passion plays, wood carvings and Lüftlmalerei fresco paintings. After later arriving in Hohenschwangau and stopping for lunch, we'll go on to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. Take in this masterpiece, which Ludwig II had constructed atop huge, jagged rocks in the middle of beautiful, though secluded, mountain scenery.
Enjoy the journey on the tour bus and let your imagination run wild with all the information provided on the mysterious world of King Ludwig II. After visiting these two architectural masterpieces, you can sink back into your comfortable seat on the tour bus and go over the day's many impressions while being driven back in Munich.
