Around Munich

Jump to last reply

Hello!
I will be visiting Munich on next May.

1) One day i will be visiting the Neuschwanstein Castle, is it worth it the inside tour??
What other places/cities do you recommend to visit in the way from Munich to Neuschwanstein in case i decide no to visit de inside of the castle?

2) Another day i will be travelling from Munich to Innsbruck and probably visiting Zugspitse. What other places/cities do you recommend to visit on this way?

Thanks for you replies

    There are two castles at Schwangau. Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Neuschwanstein was only lived in for a short time before Ludwigs suspicious death. It is like visiting a movie set. I wouldn't skip it but the really interesting castle is Hohenschwangau on the opposite hill where Lidwig grew up. You can get a combo ticket at the bottom of the hill that will admit you to both.

    One way to drive from Munich to Neuschwanstein is to go toward Garmish on the autobahn then to turn off through Ettal. The monastary and Schlos Linderhof are good stops.. Then you go through Oberammergau (wood carvers and passion play.) then you can go by the beautiful rococo church, Wieskirche. A few more miles down the road you will be in Fussen (Schwangau) to see the castles.

    You can back-track from there to Garmish. Be sure to check the weather at the top nefore you go up the Zugspitze. About ten miles toward Innsbruk is Mittenwald (the violin maker's village). That is worth a stop.

    Obviously this is one of my favorite parts of the world and I envy you getting to go there. Have a great time.
