Can you stay in Neuschwanstein Castle?

You cannot stay at Neuschwanstein Castle, but there is a hotel very close by. It offers views of the Neuschwanstein Castle, the Castle Hohenschwangau, the Alpsee Lake, and the Alps.

Neuschwanstein Castle is nestled on top of a hill overlooking the Alps, the gorgeous Alpsee lake, and the yellow Hohenschwanstein Castle.

While it would be amazing to sleep in King Ludwig II’s fairytale-like castle, it is only open for visitors.

But the good news is there is a hotel very close by, which I would call the Neuschwanstein Castle Hotel

That’s not the actual name, but it’s the one closest to the Neuschwanstein Castle. It is also way more comfortable than the cold Neuschwanstein Castle. (I was freezing during my two visits even with winter clothes on.)
