Schwangau Travel Guide: 58 reviews and 243 photos

The main reason for coming to Schwangau is to visit King Ludwig's two castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. The two are absolutely fantastic, with the scenery around them breathtaking. The town is a little out of the way, but well worth the trip once you get there! I would highly recommend it.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Breathtaking views and wonderful castles
  • Cons:A little out of the way and a little pricey
  • In a nutshell:King Ludwig at his crazy best!

    great page - we did walk up to the castle, quite a climb but most definitely worth it.

    Cool page and excellent photo of the castle!
    I do not see any difference in the two pictures from the castle at the "must see" thread.
