It really does take your breath away. Winding though sky scraping mountains, through dense forest and limitless natural beauty, suddenly this fairytale castle juts above the trees and drops your jaw. It is in such an impossible location both in its beauty and remoteness that you have to ask yourself how it ever came to be. Neuschwanstein Castle in Fussen Germany is one of the places that just beg to be visited, quietly asking you to feel it for yourself.
Built by ‘shy’ King Ludwig II to recluse from the public, this majestic limestone castle is now visited by 1.4 million visitors per year. It is a remnant of a way of life long gone; an opportunity to step back in time for a moment and experience history now.
“I could not be more satisfied with my first Backroads trip. This is excellence worth paying for.” Patricia Smith
Backroads has tailored an incredible 6 day journey from Salzburg to Munich through the Kaiser mountains. See the stunning hills that inspired Maria to sing in the Sound of Music, boat across Germany’s deepest and cleanest lake and feel the spray of the country’s highest waterfall. Walk quietly along the rocky ridge that borders Germany and Austria and take Gondolas straight from the valley floor to the upper reaches of the Tyrolean Alps where the air you breathe redefines crispness. Savor a Michelin-starred German meal then explore the incredible grounds of Neuschwanstein Castle. It will all feel like a dream capped perfectly with a visit to the festive biergartens in Munich.
