Guided Tours

If you like castles, take one of the guided tours where the bus driver takes you on a stop at the magnificent Neuschwanstein
Castle, built as a shrine to Richard Wagner by Ludwig II, the craziest King of Bavaria that ever lived.  He also built two
other castles nearby worth looking at.  The Castle Linderhof is beautifully maintained inside and out, and contains a grotto
that was also based on the works of Richard Wagner.  The Castle Herrenscheimsee is sixty kilometers south of Munich.  Any
one of these castles is picture perfect and all of them are delightful stops on your tour.

Speaking of Munich, not one guided tour of Munich would be complete without a stop in this fantastic Bavarian city, famous
for its beer, its music and for Oktoberfest.  Visitors can shop inside the city and can take a rest at Munich’s most famous
beer establishment, the Hofbrauhaus.  Having seats for nearly a thousand people on several levels, woman rush by in
traditional Bavarian dress with mugs of beer big enough to satisfy the thirstiest of travelers.  It’s just one of those
places that you need to say you’ve “been there”.

There are hundreds of different places that guided tours of Germany can take you.  The example above is just one of the
wonderful tours and places this quaint country has to offer.
