Which way is better to visit the 2 castles there , by tour group or by tain myself? I believe by train is cheaper . Any body went there in tour group? how many places will the gauider bring you to?
I'm not sure which castles you are talking about. If it is Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, I would say do it on your own. This gives you more flexibility. I normally rent a car for the day and stay as long as I want. The drive is nice and I can take my time if I like and get back as late as I want. I would arrange the car before you go. If you go by train, you can take more time than if you are with a tour group. I have never liked being with tour groups becouse they never seem to stay as long as I like. Also, don't forget that Linderhof is very close to there. About an hour away. Very do-able if you leave Munich early.
Hope that helps, Donna
