From the comfort of your air-conditioned coach, you'll leave Frankfurt and travel approximately 161 miles (260 km) south to the 700-year-old town of Fussen. The closest to the fairytale German castle of Schloss Neuschwanstein, this pretty little town is frequently referred to as the romantic soul of Bavaria, situated at the southernmost tip of Germany's Romantic Road.
Of all the castles in Germany, Neuschwanstein Castle is deservedly the most popular, and should count as the must-see attraction for your German vacation. It was built in classic Neo-Gothic Revival style, and the breathtaking grandeur of the castle's exterior has undoubtedly contributed towards its fame; it was the inspiration for the castle in Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty. On arrival, you'll enjoy a Neuschwanstein Castle guided tour, where you will take in the ornate splendor of the castle's interior. Your expert guide will provide fascinating commentary as you walk, describing the shy king who used Neuschwanstein Castle as his personal refuge during his turbulent reign.
After your Neuschwanstein tour, you'll have time to sightsee at leisure. Take a relaxing stroll around the beautifully maintained grounds, shop for souvenirs or simply enjoy the spectacular photo opportunities against the backdrop of the Bavarian mountains. Enroute back to Frankfurt, your guide will provide you with an indulgent lunchbox - well needed after your unforgettable day of Neuschwanstein sightseeing.
