Culture & Adventure
The fairytale castle in the Bavarian Alps
Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most famous and popular tourist destinations in Germany. The castle was built in the 19th century for the Bavarian King Ludwig II and is an example of the romantic architecture of historicism. The construction of the castle began in 1869 and was never completed. Ludwig II died in 1886 at the age of only 40.
The castle can be visited every day. The visit is only possible as part of a guided tour. We recommend a ticket reservation!
