Hohenschwangau Castle in Bavaria

Hohenschwangau Castle is also located in Schwangau like Neuschwanstein Castle. It is lesser known than the fairytale castle but definitely worth a visit. The castle was acquired by King Maximilian II in 1832 when it was badly damagd. He had it rebuilt and redecorated in neo-gothic style during the five following years.

Hohenschwangau Castle is located close to the Alpsee and is easy to reach by a short walk up the hill. It's also possible to take a horse carriage to reach it. Tickets for the castle can be bought at the ticket centre. You can buy a combined ticket with visits to Hohenschwangau Castle, Neuschwanstein Castle or the Museum of the Bavarian Kings.
