The average cost of the journey by car is 210 euros and the travel time will be 2 hours 15 minutes. But you can make it much cheaper if you go to Neuschwanstein via public transport.

A Bayern ticket costs 23 euros per person and the extra payment for the next passenger will be 4 euros.

This is the most viewed landmarks in Germany and the icon of Berlin. It has been a symbol of war, peace, terror, victory and war during the Cold War. It also stands for Germany’s reunification.

But feel free to eat your way through Berlin and discover your favourite. However, if you are not into fast food, you can go to the Currywurst Museum and please your hunger with culture.

Beer is a main part of the German culture. It has managed to grasp a passion for their delicious and well-made beer in the whole world. Hofbrauhaus is a sign of Munich’s hospitality and a Bavarian gift for establishing a cosy and festive atmosphere. If you are a beer lover, I would really suggest that you come to Hofbrauhaus and have a decent beer. The cost of the beer per litre is 8 euros. That might seems a little bit expensive, but believe me, it is worth to try. Hofbrauhaus is also a nice place to hear some German music and eat gigantic pretzels.
