[Translate to English:]

Come with us to the worldfamous Castle Neuschwanstein and  contemplate the amazing castel and the beautiful landscape:

Neuschwanstein, the most famous fairy-tale castle in the world, was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria (1845 - 1886). The romantic monarch and his loved ones lived out their dreams in this fairy-tale labyrinth. Although designed inside and out to look like it was built in the Middle Ages, the castle was equipped with the most modern technology of the era (first telephone in Bavaria, electric lighting, the most up-to-date kitchen utensils and sanitary facilities etc.) After the tour through the castle (english!), enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view of the Pöllat Gorge from the Marienbrücke (‘Marien Bridge’) and relax with a cup of coffee in the regal castle bistro. Travel is by train (Bayern-Ticket). Transport costs and entrance fees to the castles are included in the price of the trip.
