Welcome to the Neuschwanstein walking tour.

Neuschwanstein Castle, is one of the greatest castles in Europe – and one of the world’s foremost tourist attractions. The “fairy-tale” king, Ludwig II of Bavaria, built this dazzling Neuschwanstein palace to withdraw from public life after losing his power in the Austro-Prussian war. It’s believed that he built his new castle as the centerpiece for an imagined kingdom—one in which he was the true king.

Construction began in 1869 on top of castle ruins and workers labored day and night for almost 17 years to complete enough of the home for Ludwig II to move in. Theatrical designers and artisans worked alongside architects to create the palatial home with state-of-the-art technology. Despite its enormous size and original plan to have 200 rooms, it was built for only one person to live in.
