This beautiful Cinderella Castle towers impressively over the town of Schwangau. This town is quite tourist oriented and is easy to get around. Daily busses from Fussen (which offers more accommodation options) are convenient and quick. A site not to be missed, though the tour is short and lacking. The tour in Hohenschwangau is much more impressive. A horse-drawn buggy up to the castle seems like a good idea, but they are crowded and expensive - save the money and enjoy the beautiful walk.
