Neuschwanstein Castle - a fairytale palace and inspiration for Disney’s world-famous Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Must Eat At:
Zur Blauen Traube (The Blue Grape) for authentic German cuisine. The restaurant is centrally located in a pedestrianised street just off the main square (Kramerstrasse) and includes outdoor seating.
Must Be There For:
Fisher Day (Fischertag) – an annual event to commemorate the centuries-old practice of clearing the local river of trout in order to drain off and clean the channel. Nowadays, all the local “fishers” gather on the first Saturday morning of the summer holidays to compete for the title of Fisher King, awarded to the person who catches the heaviest trout! The festival is accompanied by traditional ceremony and exuberant celebration.
