  • Visit here around end of july 2022. Beautiful palace and gardens, 25 min walk or 15 min horse drawn carriage ride from boat. Museum for Ludwig II inside the palace. Also a nice restaurant. I love the castle and it’s worth visiting. Even just walking around outside in the park is amazing. The walk from the ferry dock was not strenuous but on a warm day could leave one sweating. There is an ice cream stand near the end of the trail for those needing a cool indulgence. The palace is rich with history, you will enjoy it with a guided tour. The cafe offers varieties of drinks with limited food selection. The fountains in front of the palace and sculptures in and around the palace are impressive and you can stand and admire for longer time.
