International Students Explore Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein, Bavaria’s Renowned Fairytale Castles

MBS Neuschwanstein Castle

Accompanied by the MBS university management, namely MBS Dean Prof. Dr. Stefan Baldi and Chancellor Nathalie von Seyfried, a group of (mostly) incoming international students did an excursion to Bavaria’s fairytale castles, Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein on Saturday.

Arriving at their destination after a bus ride from Munich Business School, the students were greeted by sunny weather and mild temperatures before taking a walk to Hohenschwangau Castle. The students enjoyed a guided tour through the medieval castle, followed by some free time to discover the surroundings, including the nearby lake, the Alpsee, which presented itself in a beautiful, winterly raiment.

First stop: Hohenschwangau Castle, the smaller one of the two fairytale castles, and the nearby Alpsee.

Afterwards, it was about time for the highlight of the tour: Neuschwanstein Castle, probably Germany’s most renowned castle. Here, the students enjoyed another guided tour before heading back down to the valley, and to Munich.
