After taking a look at the castles, we decided to hop on the Tegelberg cable car and see what it was all about. First, the cable car ride is incredible. The views when you step off are breathtaking! We watched people paraglide and hang gliding for a while and hiked around. Crisp mountain air and little pockets of snow. We... More

Good place for photos. Go up if the visibility is good, we had amazing sunshine. Its pricey, 15€ each tickets, kids DO... More

The views of Neuschwanstein Castle and the surrounding area as we ascended the mountain were breathtaking. When we reached the cable car station... More

Although a pleasant day, by the time the cable car was near the top the low cloud obliterated the view. Nevertheless we made the most of it and walked around before going into the café/restaurant.

Our trip was lucky with weather so everything was wonderful. There are some nice restaurant at the top. The trekking path is very nice and yield great rewards of wonderful views. Fussen tourist card will get you some discount for the cable car.

When I visited Hohenschwangau on August 8th, my initial plan was to do the Castles in the Morning and then take the Cable Car to the Top. Little did I know that the Visits would take me into the early Afternoon, and then having had Lunch it got relatively late, so I skipped out on the Mountain Top, preferring a... More
