Munich & Neuschwanstein
Days: 4 | From: $2,795
Day 1: Arrive in Munich
Your Guardian Angel meets and accompanies you to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore on your own.
Day 2: Historic Old Town
Join your local guide for a walking tour of the compact Old Town, with its famous Hofbräuhaus. See the Karlsplatz fountain and the Frauenkirche, as well as the Marienplatz with the new Rathaus (city hall). During an afternoon at leisure, you may want to watch the surfers and stroll along to the Eisbach, a small river that forms a standing wave.
Day 3: A Fairy Tale Castle
Set out into the Bavarian countryside to King Ludwig II’s Neuschwanstein Castle, used by Walt Disney as the model for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland. Its construction almost brought Bavaria to bankruptcy, and Ludwig’s early death in the lake is rumored to be closely connected with this. Take time to walk to the Marienbrucke (Mary’s Bridge) for the best views of the stunning, fairy tale castle. Afterward, see Ludwig II’s country retreat at Linderhof; its Rococo styling is similar to Versailles’.
Day 4: Depart Munich
Privately transfer to the Munich airport.
