Falkenstein Castle

The highest elevated castle in the country, Falkenstein Castle and its ruins are located at a height of 1277 meters (4190 feet) in the Bavarian Alps. Built during the 13th Century and destroyed by the 17th Century, the castle was then purchased by King Ludwig II In 1883. He set into motion an elaborate plan to rebuild the castle under the guidance of the architect Christian Jank but the project fell through upon the King's death three years later. Today, the castle ruins make for an exhilarating hiking excursion, with a museum featuring informative and interesting exhibits located in the vicinity.

Neuschwanstein Castle

Located on a mountainside overlooking the Hohenschwangau valley, the Neuschwanstein Castle is a dream-like structure in an idyllic setting. Construction of the castle began in 1869 but was not completed until 1892. King Ludwig II commissioned its construction so that he could stay in a beautiful castle when he wanted to escape the royal courts. However, the king did not live to see the castle's completion. Visitors can explore the castle's Byzantine, Romanesque, and Gothic-inspired interior, including the third and fourth floors, which were supposed to have been the king’s residences. These floors house opulent murals and spectacular wood carvings. Tours of the castle are available throughout the day. Visitors must visit the nearby Mary's Bridge, from where the view of the castle and its surroundings is stunning.

Alpsee

The Alpsee is situated in the quaint Bavarian mountainside, near the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles. This beautiful lake has a maximum depth of 62 meters (203.4 feet) and a short shoreline of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). It has become popular with tourists for its scenic Alpine and castle views, serene atmosphere, and pristine waters. The lake is an ideal spot for watching birds like wild swans floating calmly in the cold waters. Alpsee is also an idyllic lake to enjoy boating, and the surrounding area features exquisite trails that are waiting to be explored.

Tegelberg

Tegelberg rises steeply from the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. This imposing, but the starkly beautiful range is a popular destination for hikers, climbers, ski enthusiasts, paragliding enthusiasts and other tourists. Within driving distance from the Neuschwanstein Castle, the mountain also has a popular cable car facility and panoramic restaurant where diners can have an unforgettable meal.

Linderhof Palace

The Linderhof Palace, nestled in the western corner of Ettal, is the smallest castle to have been constructed by King Ludwig II. The tour of the palace gives visitors a glimpse into the opulent life that King Ludwig II led. From various chambers, dining rooms, grottos, and the King's favorite Hall of Mirrors, the ornate castle and its breathtaking expanse gives an up and close peek into the royal life. In winter when the castle is covered in snow, it resembles a spectacular, magical snow globe. While the castle is the smallest in size among all three palaces commissioned by King Ludwig II, it is also one of the most beautiful and exquisite royal complexes.

Eibsee

Eibsee is a mountain lake in the state of Bavaria that is easily accessed from Garmisch-Partenkirchen by bus and trains. The lake offers a scenic view of the surrounding Alpine peaks. The clear turquoise waters make for a beautiful boating destination. The lake is popular for featuring its beautiful trails that lead into the woods where one can discover the flora and fauna of the region. In addition to this, this spot is known for many winter sports activities.
