Best views of Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenscwangau

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Germany/Bavaria/Austria with his sister this fall. My husband and I did the whole tour of Neuschwanstein and found the most breathtaking moments when you saw it from the outside, the inside tour we found a little under-whelming.

So are there other vantage points to see it from? Someone mentioned the Alpsee, the small lake to the south of the two castles. Apparently there is a walk around the shore of the lake with some lovely views back across the water to the both Castles?

And what about Hohenscwangau, is it worth an inside tour?
