There is hardly a building in the world that has been photographed as often as King Ludwig’s fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle! It often served as a template for fairy tales and Hollywood films. The “enchantingly beautiful view” of the castle, as King Ludwig called it, is a real treat.
Combine your basrrier-free excursion with a visit to the Rococo-style Wieskirche or a visit to Ettal Abbey and the “Royal Villa” as the Linderhof Palace is also called. Enjoy regional and seasonal delicacies in the royal beer garden in the Festspielhaus Füssen with probably the most beautiful view in the Allgäu!
