King Ludwig's Castles

Jump to last reply

Hi! I hope to travel to the Germany/Austria/Czech Republic in September. I am travelling solo, I am a 32 year old male with interests in history, architecture, photography, sports, and hiking. My rough itinerary is to land in Munich, then travel to Berchtesgaden, Salzburg, Vienna, Prague, Nuremberg, Wurzburg, and Frankfort. While in Munich, I am debating how to best make a side trip to visit King Ludwig's castles (Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau, and Linderhof). I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice?

From what I have researched, it seems using public transportation is impractical, so it seems trains are ruled out. Going as part of a tour group doesn't really appeal to me, as I don't like being rushed through places, so I don't really want to try that. So my final conclusion was to try and rent a car. My question is, is it realistic to be able to visit all 3 castles in one day and return to Munich? Or am I trying to do to much? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
