Visit to Castle Neuschwanstein

One of Bavaria's most storied gems is Neuschwanstein castle, Mad King Ludwig's vision quest that the King never got to see finished.

A visit to Neuschwanstein is a must for anyone traveling to Munich.


At the gateway to the Franconian Forest nature reserve lies Kulmbach, a former royal residence which has made a name for itself primarily through the art of beer brewing. Brewing and 'sampling' under one roof – that is what awaits you at the brewery museum. There is a fascinating and informative exhibition about all aspects of beer.

Plassenburg Castle

Above the Old Quarter of Kulmbach towers the Plassenburg Castle, one of the biggest Renaissance buildings in Germany.
