I have been to Neu Schwanstein multiple times, but not in years. I don't remember buying tickets in advance.
We are doing a family road trip in late September with 6 adults. N.S. wasn't part of the plan but one couple expressed interest, so I'm willing to try. The official online ticketing system doesn't have tickets available for our possible dates.
My question is: do you have a reasonable chance of buying same-day tickets on site? A lot of websites make it sound like the only way to do it is buy their tour. I realize late September is still likely high season.
I'm tempted to drive by, get there as early in the day as possible, and take our chances. And if they are sold out all day, we could still get the view and do other touring in the area.
