    • Included meals: Dinner

    Included excursion, as we visit the village of Hohenschwangau and King Ludwig II’s famous Neuschwanstein castle (entrance included).

    Built in the 19th century, the fairy tale castle is dramatically perched on a hilltop. King Ludwig encouraged plans for this German Gothic castle but unfortunately died before the end of its construction. The panoramic views from each side of the castle are truly breathtaking. Please note: during the tour of Neuschwanstein Castle you will be required to climb 165 steps and descend 181.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

    Included Highlights

    • Neuschwanstein Castle

    Today’s included excursion takes us across the German border to Schloss Linderhof, a palace of stunning beauty with superb landscaped gardens. Known as the 'Royal Villa' of Ludwig II, the palace originated as a hunting lodge belonging to his father, Maximilian II – the 'Königshäuschen'.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

    Included Highlights

    • Linderhof Palace

    Today’s optional excursion takes us to Chiemsee, Bavaria’s largest lake, also known as ‘the Bavarian Sea’. We take a boat from the first class spa resort of Prien over to Herreninsel and to Herrenchiemsee, the largest and most expensive castle built by King Ludwig II.

    In 1873, Ludwig acquired Herreninsel as the location for his Royal Palace but the actual building work didn’t start until 1878. From plans drawn by Georg Dollmann, the palace was built as a ‘Temple of Versailles’ for King Louis XIV of France, whom the king greatly admired.

    Unfortunately, Ludwig never saw his Royal Palace finished and after his death in 1886, only the sections along the main axis, with their famous fountains and waterworks, were complete.

    Nowadays, a visit to the most famous part of the palace is the 98-metre long 'Hall of Mirrors' and a visit to the royal bed chamber, in which no one ever slept, is also a must.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner
