Nice castle on the island in the midlle of the lake. Great boat ride, amazing views. Iz s unfinished caste, wannabe Versailles look a like. Interesting toor in the castle!! 20 min walk from boat to castle is refreshing and so peacefull.
Take a quick tour through the castle and compare the completed rooms with the "incomplete" section and be amazed at the level of detail and craftsmanship in this castle. The hall of mirrors is breathtaking.
This is not in several of the guide books but so worth the visit. We thought it the best of all of Bavarian castles- not crowded, pleasant boat ride and stroll to castle. Versailles hall of mirrors was outstanding without the lines!
Eat your heart out, Versailles. Ludwig's castle beats Louis's castle hands down. Greeted at the till by a German sourpuss though. As if out to prove that "German service industry" is a contradiction in terms. However, the English-language tour guide, Lauren, more than makes up...More
If you ever want to see an exact copy of the Verseille castle and also one that was never finished, this is the castle for you. Super interesting to see a castle just built in admiration of the sun king and also seeing an unfinished...More
We stopped here on our way to Salzburg and pleasantly enjoyed the visit. We did the tour of the castle which we found intriguing. We'd been to Versailles Palace so this comparison was interesting to us. The boat trip to the island was enjoyable on...More
Wow, was a thought in many of the rooms of this castle/schloss. We already visited Neuschwanstein and Linderhof and this one is great too. What a life he had. As a familiy we only payed 18 Euro, 9 per adult. So this was really worth...More

Having just returned today from trip, tours in various languages seem to go quite frequently. It seems to be well organised and signs showing what time each tour leaves and in what language. Buy your ticket for tour when you get off the ferry and either walk (about 10-15 mins) or take the horse and carriage (€3.50 I think). A beautiful setting and lovely ferry ride over. We left from Stock near Preu which only took about 20 mins. There is lots of parking in the area where you get the ferry. Enjoy.
