Know Before You Go
Most people take the train from Munich; once you arrive at the station, a bus or taxi can be taken to Hohenschwangau where the castle's ticketing office is located. You're given a block of time for your tour, so you may need to kill some time first in the small town at the base of the castle. From there, you can either hike to the top or pay for a horse-drawn carriage ride up the mountain. If you plan on doing the former, comfortable footwear is recommended.
Because of it's popularity, it is strongly advised that you purchase your tickets in advanced, especially if you are short on time or visiting during high season. Luggage, large rucksacks, and strollers are not allowed. There are no lockers at the castle, storing these items prior to your visit is recommended. The castle does provide services for persons with limited mobility. You can find all the necessary information by visiting the website.
