AKZENT Hotel Müller Hohenschwangau: "Dining with a castle view: Neuschwanstein's Best" Schloss Neuschwanstein Hotel Tip by jbarker
Schloss Neuschwanstein Hotels: 5 reviews and 8 photos
Our internist recommended this hotel at the foot of the mountain where the two Ludwig castles are located. It celebrated its 100th birthday in 2010. We stayed at this delightful, full service hotel in October 2009. We qualified for the special package, "Indian Summer in the corner of the castles" (available from October 18 to November 14). Arriving well after 2000 hours, we were politely taken to our room and invited to the dining room for a meal. We were tired from a full day of train travel in a light rain and evening snow, so we selected large dinner salads. We could have opted for a three course meal. The next morning, after an enormous breakfast buffet, our tickets for the morning carriage ride and entrance to Neuschwanstein Castle were ready. We also received our tickets for Schloss Hohenschwangau. "Indian Summer" includes a "Menu of the month" one evening, and an exclusive candlelight dinner with a bottle of wine another evening (of one's choice), and the tickets mentioned above. Since we wanted to visit nearby towns, the hotel arranged a car rental for us and not only took us to the rental dealer but also provided transportation to our train after our final night. The staff is superb, friendly and efficient. We have never stayed in such a fine and enjoyable hotel. It was a splurge for us at 572 Euros for 4 nights (but remember the wonderful dinners and breakfasts and tickets to the castles and carriage ride), but we considered it a bargain. Also, it was "doctor's orders."
Unique Qualities: Meals are taken in the opulent dining room with a view of Neuschwanstein above. The nearby reflective lake Alpsee is beautiful and invites a walk on the circuitous route. It also provides an excellent photo position for Schloss Hohenschwanstein. Adequate shopping is available adjacent to the hotel, across the street, and in downtown Füssen, which is about 2 miles away.
