The castle entrance charge is not included (you can pay on the day), but if you buy this tour in advance, you’ll have skip-the-line access to Neuschwanstein, which means you won’t lose time waiting in line.

Take a guided tour of the magnificent structure once inside, where you’ll learn fascinating facts about the reclusive Bavarian king who commissioned a new castle in the 19th century.

King Ludwig II was thought to be insane because he wanted to build a fantasy castle in the mountains, which he did obsessively and left unfinished when he died.
