We are a group of mixed ages( 2 elders, young couple and kids) travelling from Fussen to the castle in July. We will be prebuying the tickets for the earliest tour in the day( 8 or 9am), since after the castle visit we plan to go onto Innsbruck.
Question 1: . Are there clear directions to go from Fussen centre to the castle and where can we park once we reach the spot?
Question 2: I have read that there is a quite a walk to the castle itself. How long would it take since i would like to plan earlier so that we have ample time to get to the castle before the tour? Would it make sense to take the coach ride since we have elders in the group(they are fit but steep walks are a no no). I believe there are carriage rides as well waits until it gets full so want to know on this and how far is the parking from the castle itself?
Question 3: Is there an elevator in the castle as i read it in some posts as im worried the elders might not be able to take the tour if there are 160 odd steps to climb within the castle?
Question 4: Do we drive to the Marienbruck bridge or walk again?
Question 5: How many hours should we allow, to drive + park + go to castle + inside tour + go to bridge and return all at an medium pace?
Question 6 : Incase the elders dont come into the castle and only half the group goes in, is there any waiting area, rest room, restuarant around close by where they can wait comfortably?
Sorry too many questions and thanks for reading them. I dont want to ping repeatedly with single q's in different posts.
