Neuschwanstein Castle is a stunning nineteenth century castle built for King Ludwig II. is just a few miles from Fussen, Bavaria in Germany. Truly fairy-tale in its design and splendour, this castle was the inspiration for Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
Motorhome parking is well sign posted and costs 9.50 euro for the day. Note however that overnight stays are not allowed.
From the car parking area, allow about a sixty minute stroll to reach the castle. The walk is pleasant though, albeit uphill and you will pass by the Hohenschwangau Castle, where King Ludwig II spent his youth.
There were some information posters about a shuttle bus from the parking area to the castle, but we did not see any buses operating. There were however horse-drawn carriages, noting that it seemed you could haggle for prices!
The castle area was very busy with tourists and although the weather prevented a more pleasant background, the climb to reach the castle was well worth it.
