For me is this castle the most beautiful one in Europe! Its location is simply perfect and the scenery is amazing. If you want to have a look inside, be prepared for long queues.

This is definitely a tourist trap. Tons of gift shops, cafes and pay per use bathrooms. But the views are stunning. Did not go through the castle tour but It was worth the walk up to the castle just for the views. The bridge view...More

This castle is absolutely amazing. It is a whole day trip from Munich, but beautiful and worth the time. However, I urge you not to use Munich Direct Tours. On our way to the castle, we had to transfer trains. Our guide told us this,...More

Unfortunately this beautiful attraction was extremely poorly managed the day we were there. There had been some overnight snow so the usual shuttle buses and taxis were not operating. The only option, after buying tickets was to take the horse carriages or walk up to...More

If I remember correctly it is mostly paved with a bit of stone. It is all very walkable, though the path is steep up the mountain. We used the shuttle most of the way up, then walked the last section. We walked all the way... More
