Day 03: Munich – Full day to Neuschwanstein and Linderhof
Another day in Munich and what is in store for you today is to take a full day excursion to discover the world famous castles Neuschwanstein and Linderhof, out of Munich. Hidden in the seclusion of the mountains King Ludwig II built two of his dream castles: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof.

You have an approx. 4 hours time to visit Neuschwanstein and for Lunch (meals are not included). Entrance fee for the castle to be paid on the spot.
Day 04: Munich – Trip to Zugspitze
Visit the Top of Germany – Zugspitze. From Munich, it’s only 1 1/2 hours by train & about 1 hour 45 mins by road to the Bavarian Alps, in particular, the former Winter Olympic town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which is beautiful and lively in its own right. But the real reason to come here is to get to the top of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest peak at 2,964 m. Get off the train and take a short walk to the Bayerische Zugspitzbahn station (this is a private transportation system, so rail passes don’t work). Get a Zugspitze round trip ticket and take the first train to. There you’ll have to choose whether to continue to the top via cable car or train.
The cable car is steep, spectacular, quick, and it takes you, right to the top. The train is a bit more roundabout–literally, as part of the route is a spiral tunnel inside the mountain–as it takes you to station just below the peak where you can linger or board a cable car for the last piece of the trip. The views are truly awesome and words don’t do them justice. You can apparently see five different countries on a clear day. Also, if you get time why not take a stroll around the Eibsee lake nearby after you’ve taken the hair raising cable car back down from the summit. A full day is recommended for an experience this wonderful mountain & its surroundings.
Full day to Lake Chiemsee
Today you can opt to visit the beautiful lake Chiemsee. And visit the famous Herrenchiemsee Castle and Museum. From Munich, you take the train to Prien which is about 1.5hrs by train and then take a 10 minutes boat ride to the island on which the castle is located. Lake Chiemsee is Bavaria’s biggest lake, also known as the Bavarian Sea. The Herreninsel, Fraueninsel and Krautinsel islands lie close together in the calm waters. This composition, with its colours and lighting, almost looks too perfect. At 2.4 square kilometres, Herrenchiemsee is the largest of the islands and is famous for the castle built there by Bavaria’s fairytale King Ludwig II to surpass Versailles. You can take a scenic walk or carriage ride through the park you reach the impressive palace take a local tour and discover what happens if a king runs out of money halfway through. There’s a charming little Romanesque church affiliated to a small convent on Fraueninsel and some of the best Bavarian restaurants.
Overnight in Munich
