Castles · History Museums · Beaches
A picturesque village nestled in a green valley on the shores of a lake, Hohenschwangau receives nearly two million visitors every year. Hohenschwangau tourism thrives thanks to two fairytale-like 19th-century castles, both built for Bavarian kings. Dotted with guesthouses, hotels, restaurants, and souvenir shops, the village serves as a gateway to these former royal palaces, one of which is said to have inspired Walt Disney. Sightseeing in Hohenschwangau often includes a visit to a museum housed in an old hotel. Whether you decide to hike up to the castles or take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride, you will get to enjoy the sweeping views of the lakeside village and its Alpine surroundings.
