Could this be the world’s most magnificent castle? We think so! The glorious Schloss Neuschwanstein is the sparkling crown jewel of every Distinctly Deutschland Itinerary. 

Enthroned on a glorious spot in the Bavarian Alps Neuschwanstein is the ultimate fairy-tale palace. Built only 150 years ago by the much loved ‘Mad King’ Ludwig II, Neuschwanstein is full of architectural wonders. Surrender to your imagination and create your own romantic legends as you stride the royal chambers and marvel at its squiggly interiors. And, if it looks familiar it might just be because its mountain-top location, steep towers and quirky turrets inspired Walt Disney’s instantly recognizable Sleeping Beauty castle.

Your DD private guide will also take you for a tour of the surrounding hills for even better views of the extravagant castle’s turrets as you listen to the tales of the fabled King Ludwig, whose other stunning palaces, including Hohenschwangau and Linderhof should also be added to your route.

After a long day’s exploring, settle in front of a roaring fire in your luxurious Alpine lodge with a warm mug of mulled wine, before enjoying a mouth-watering candlelit Bavarian dinner. A great day’s perfect fairy-tale ending.
