What You Can Expect

Royal Castle of Linderhof and Oberammergau Day Tour from Munich

Village of Oberammergau

The smallest of three royal castles, Linderhof was built by King Ludwig II during the 19th century as a hunting lodge. Built in French Rococo style, the castle has a fantastic grotto and Moorish pavilion which can be visited during your two hour stay.

You will then travel to Oberammergau, world-famous for its woodcarvers, richly painted houses (Luftl-paintings) and Passion Play. During the Thirty Years War, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the people of Oberammergau swore an oath to perform the "Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ" every ten years. This tradition has been preserved since then, and the next Passion Play will be performed in 2020.

You will have time for sightseeing and shopping in Oberammergau, before returning to Munich.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

A real treat. The Linderhof Castle was great to see. So unlike King Ludwig II's other castles. Beautiful grounds and other amenities. Oberammergau was delightful. Not enough time to explore it however. Also we were there on a Sunday so most of the stores and shops were closed. Very picturesque.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

This started off oddly as the Linderhof tour was grouped on the same bus as those going to the Zugspitze, and there were two guides on the tour. At first we dropped the Zugspitze group at a monastery and headed to Linderhoff. We had the most wonderful guide named Uta. If you can get her on your tour, do it. She is not only a very sweet person, she is extremely knowledgeable about everything related to the tour. She made me actually feel like I was getting historical information and stories about where I was going and prepared us nicely for the trip. Despite her being older she climbed with us to the Grotto at Linderhof and the Moorish Pavillion. Obviously, if you combined the Linderhof with Neuschwanstein you missed the Moorish Pavilllion and Grotto. It was worth seeing those, particularly the Grotto. And just having the time to walk the grounds and get great shots of Linderhof from above. Highly recommended.
