My husband and I will want to do a day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle from Munich. Can anyone recommend the best tour companies to use (or alternatively, if you think those companies aren't worth it and it's best to go it alone?)?
I understand that if we were to do it alone, we would do a train to Fussen and a bus to Hohenschwangau, where we could buy tickets for the regular tour or pick them up if we reserved in advance (do you have to wait in a regular line to pick pre-reserved ones up?). Then there's a good walk up to the castle. Does anyone know how long the tour (official one if someone is just buying a ticket themselves) lasts?
