This is a very cool castle because despite being both decorative and not being at the highest part of the hill still appears to have been a functional, defensible castle. One of the things that made me enjoy this one over the son's castle is there are far less people!
While enjoyable, it is unfortunately a little less exiting than King Ludwig's castle. The biggest factor making it less exciting is that all of the awesome hiking trails and vistas are at the top of the hill. If you're pressed for time and can only see one or the other, I would suggest doing Neuschwanstein instead...but if you skip this tour you will miss out on this loaf of bread that's like hundreds of years old, I'm not gonna lie, it's probably the highlight of the tour.
