We did the Best of Germany and Austria Tour with our guide Frederico a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it! We have been dreaming of a trip to Europe for a long time now and it was more than we could have ever hoped for. Thank you so much for memories that will last a lifetime!

Although I haven't completed my detailed review on TripAdvisor, European Castles Tours are the best by leaps and bounds. I have traveled to many places and taken many excellent tours but ECT has surpassed them all. My sister and I took our boys, ages 13 and 17 with us on their castles tour in Austria and Germany (April-2018). Our tour guide was Barbara Schleyer. In addition to being an absolutely delightful person, she is professional, informative, and thinks of every detail. I urge all travelers who want a personalized, high quality experience to sign up now before everybody catches on and they are fully booked.

We are back and had a fantastic time. Franz was engaging and helpful. He provided interesting information to supplement the tours and also gave us space to explore on our own.

The customer service in making arrangements was excellent - and we appreciated Astrid modifying the standard Bavarian Castle tour so we could visit Hohenschwangau in addition to the other castles!

from March:
Astrid has gone beyond what is expected and helped with all aspects of arranging a tour and has made the planning of our trip to Germany easier. She speaks excellent English, responds timely and is kind and helpful. Thank you!

We just finished our private 3 day Bavarian castle tour. What a wonderful company. Astride was wonderful to work with. She coordinated our entire tour. We spent one night in Fussen at a beautiful hotel and one night in Innsbruck at a hotel right in the heart of the city. Federico was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He went over the top to take care of all our needs. He was so knowledgeable. An endless resource of information and ideas. We will definitely book another trip. It was exactly how a vacation should be!!! Thanks Astrid and thank you Federico for making our stay so memorable.

From European Castles Tours

European Castles Tours is based in Hopfen am See, just outside of Füssen in the southern part of Bavaria.  Füssen is in the heart of castle country.  King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle and his family’s Hohenschwangau Castle are both within 5 km (3 miles) of Füssen, and Ludwig’s second castle, Linderhof, is close by as well.

European Castles Tours offers tours in Bavaria, in Germany’s Rhine region, and in the surrounding countries of central Europe.

Astrid Baur grew up in Füssen, and famous castles have always been just another part of her daily life.  She began giving castles tours as a summer job, learned what guests expect and appreciate most, established her own tours company in 2004, and is proud of now counting thousands of happy clients as tour friends.

Astrid acts as Tour Director when possible, as this is what she loves most of all.  The company has added new itineraries, day tours, and private tours to its offerings so Astrid has carefully recruited and trained an excellent team in how to do things the way she and her guests expect.

The experienced professionals have the local knowledge to do what the guidebooks simply cannot – give you an insider's perspective on each destination and create a holiday experience you could not have on your own.  With friendly attentiveness, they act as your personal concierge, ensuring your holiday is seamless and hassle-free.

Our team members all speak English fluently, have deep knowledge of history and the tour destinations which they are eager to share, and are highly motivated, outgoing, caring, and fun.  And we are all addicted to castles. We are your local friends in unfamiliar places – already before your tour starts.

European Castles Tours specializes in all-inclusive small-group English-language tours – featuring inside visits at the most impressive castles, palaces, chateaux, cathedrals, monasteries and medieval towns in Germany and central Europe.  Our Bavarian and the Rhine region castles tours are the most popular, but we also travel to Austria, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Italy, France, Portugal, and Ireland.
