Schloss Hohenschwangau

Hohenschwangau Castle Tour From Munich

Hohenschwangau Castle is a 12th-century castle that has a long history and was also partially used by King Ludwig II. I’m one of the few guides, who offers this special event.

Since over 5.000 people visit the region for its amazing castles you need reservations. I take care of the tickets giving you a skip-the-line, which is really necessary when visiting the region.
