The area is breathtaking and the fact that we get to see something like that still standing is amazing! The only bad thing about the experience was the line for tour tickets, which you absolutely need to go into the castle for the tour. I knew it was possible to book the tour in advance, but since we were staying in Munich and taking the train out, I wasn't sure when exactly we would get there or how long it would take to get to the castle for the tour, so I opted to get tickets there. The wait for the ticket was honestly longer than the tour itself, but we were still glad we did it. If you do not buy tickets/tour times in advance, be prepared to stand in line for a long time and wait. If you have control over your arrival time, save yourself some time and get right to the tour and reserve your slot in advance. This will also give you time to walk around the area at the base of the castles, as well as Fussen.
