What you'll do

Let's walk with me along scenic routes, where you will enjoy the alpine expanses, learn the history of these places, hear the legends of the Nibelungs and tales of glorious knights. The huge castle of Neuschwanstein, as if descended from the pages of a fairy tale, rises on a rocky cliff. Its magnificently cleaned halls amaze with its scale and scope. It is incredibly beautiful, creating an unusual atmosphere that is difficult to convey in words. Linderhof Castle, located in a high valley - the only castle that was completed before the death of the king. Ludwig was delighted with the beauty of French Versailles, and this small palace, surrounded by a magnificent park, is not inferior to it. Baroque-style building and parterres, renaissance-style terraces, cascades of fountains and waterfalls, a lush garden, many unusual locations, such as the Moorish pavilion, Moroccan house, Khundig hut, Venus grotto. The scope of Herrenkimsee Castle is much larger than Linderhof. It is located on an island in the middle of Lake Chiemsee. This island belonged to the monks for centuries and was a symbol of silence, solitude, which the king so sought. To get acquainted with these masterpieces of castle architecture, we need to devote a whole day. But worry not! We will make a couple breaks to have a rest and a lunch with the best local dishes!

Mans

I am a historic living in the city of Straubing. I was performing excursions for individual travelers and small groups in Bavaria for 5 last years already. Now I conduct excursions in Schwangau, Nuremberg, Regensburg, to show my visitors the Bavarian castles Neuschwanstein, Linderhof, Hohenschwangau, Herrenkimsee. During my tour I introduce not only the history, architecture, main attractions, but also the culture, life and modern life of ordinary people. My relatives and friends are native Czechs, Germans, Swiss. My experience and communication with them allowed me to prepare an interesting “baggage” background for my new friends! Feeling the country, seeing as much as possible, learning about local traditions, tasting national dishes and drinks, plunging into communication with the local people is the motto of my tour!

What's included

Food

Where you'll be

The beautiful, multifaceted Bavaria surprises its guests not only with a variety of foamy drinks, unusual dishes, magical landscapes, but also with beautiful castles, most of which were erected near Munich on the initiative of Ludwig II - the “Mad King”, known for his craving for everything beautiful, unusual. Join me in this scenic tour to explore this breathtaking region!
