Sightseeing Neuschwanstein Castle Tour
The Bavarian capital of Munich is one of the few German cities to offer a wide variety of attractions. Munich is not only a holiday destination, but also the starting point for excursions to its surrounding areas. The Bavarian region at the foothills of the Alps is rich in culture and history. The nearby lakes Ammersee, Starnberger See and Staffelsee are one of the sceneries in the area that are especially nice for excursions.
A journey back into the Bavarian history leads you on a day-trip to the municipality of Schwangau near the town of Füssen in the district of Ostallgäu in the Bavarian Alpine region.
There in the village of Hohenschwangau you can find the Neuschwanstein Castle, one of Germany’s most popular tourist attractions visited by tourists from all over the world.
