I just had to see this castle - famous for being the inspiration for Walt Disney's castle. It was just unfortunate that at that time, the front portion was being renovated. But it was a good experience nevertheless, The castle was really picturesque and beautiful....More

The castle is beautiful, the environment is enchanting. The views from the bridge are the best part of the visit. I would not pay for the castle tour. It is limited in what you get to see. The outside is much better than inside!

Picturesque and beautiful. If you have the time and are able, hike up and around the castle. It is worth it. Buy tickets ahead of time and enjoy a tour of the inside.

The castle and grounds never fails to impress. We wanted to see it during the fall and what a beautiful site. We always take the horse drawn carriage to the landing area. Well worth the 10.50 euro price for round trip.

We checked this castle out on our way from GPK to Munich. It’s stunning, gorgeous, and relatively young in European standards. However, the crowds were nuts. It took away from the charm, might as well go see the castle Disneyland made (inspired from this) and...More

Depends on the season you want to go. If it's spring or summer, you most probably won't get any tickets but if you're lucky, you might get some for a very late tour. If it's autumn or winter, you have a better chance of... More
