The Neuschwanstein Castle

Duration: 4 hours
Overview: The Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most visited castles in Germany and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. The castle is in Bavaria, near the town of Fussen. It was built in the 19th century by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as the "Fairytale King". Neuschwanstein literally means "New Swan Castle" a reference to "the Swan Knight" one of the Wagner's characters. The fairytale look of the Neuschwanstein castle inspired Walt Disney to create the Magic Kingdom.


Duration: At your own pace
Overview: On top of the world: Mount Zugspitze At 2,962 metres, the Zugspitze is Germany's highest peak and a fabulous destination for nature lovers, sun walkers, worshippers and skiers. Starting at Lake Eibsee, the Zugspitzbahn cog railway chugs its way through the mountains for twelve kilometers. The mountain railways of Bayerische Zugspitzbahn whisk you up to a superlative mountain experience! Enjoy the complete mountain experience in comfort: Take the cog wheel train from Zugspitze station Garmisch-Partenkirchen to the idyllic Lake Eibsee. The ascent with the Eibsee cable car offers spectacular views down to the lake, before new horizons open up with a powerful panorama at the Zugspitze Peak. The Zugspitze Glacier at 2,600 meters is then accessed using the glacier lifts, before the rack and pinion railway comfortably transports you through the Zugspitze Tunnel and back to your original starting point. A well rounded trip!
