I been there in sep 2009.
there were a lot of interested place surround there.
1. Its no need to book in advance cause it take around 45 minite in the castle . You just buy ticket and spend some time look aroud nice lake until it time to enter. and If you miss the timetable you book you might have to buy a new ticket. ( UNDERSTAND ticket is fix time schedule )
2.There were 2 castle Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein for your chice for select which one to visit first.
Both are Nice to visit
Hotel Kurcafe is not far from Füssen station. From there are frequent buses to Hohenschwangau, the bus stop close to the ticket center. Travel time is 8 minutes. Single trip is EUR 2,10.
If you can be at the ticket center in the early morning (opens at 8am) you don't need to book in advance. Booking in advance is more important for people arriving only at noon at Hohenschwangau (e.g. from Munich) and that it can happen that the next few tours through the castle are all already full and you only get a late tour.
Neuschwanstein Castles has many tourist just going there. Füssen itself is far less crowded.
Bus network RVA/OVG
Day ticket for this network is EUR 7,00.
Hi I was there in June on a Friday. Arrived at mid-day, no problem booking both castles and only had to wait about 90 minutes.
It never occurred to us to book ahead so we were surprised when we arrived late morning and had to wait until afternoon for our tour. We did get an immediate tour of Hohenschwangau Castle and then ate lunch so it worked out well. Oddly, we enjoyed Hohenschwangau more than Neuschwanstein. Do try to see both castles. They are both interesting and impressive.
Have a good trip.
