What You Can Expect

Royal Castle of Linderhof and Oberammergau Day Tour from Munich

Village of Oberammergau

This full-day tour begins with a 75-minute drive south, from Munich to southwest Bavaria and Linderhof Palace.

Linderhof was inspired by the King Ludwig’s visits to the Palace of Versailles in France. It is the smallest of the three palaces built by the king and the only one which he lived to see completed. Together, the palace and its surrounding park — including the grotto and the Moorish pavilion — are one of the most artistic and stylistically complex ensembles of the 19th century — and a sight to behold.

After exploring the castle for several hours, make a 15-minute drive to the village of Oberammergau for sightseeing and shopping. This town is famous for its production of a Passion Play, which was first performed in 1634 as a vow made by the villagers. They said if God spared them from the bubonic plague that was sweeping the region at the time, they would perform the Passion Play every ten years. 

The tour ends with a return trip to central Munich.

Great trip... comfortable bus, tour guide was amazing and she gave us a lot of information about Munich and the palace. Linderhof was small but beautiful. Be sure to go on a nice day because the grounds are amazing. Oberammergau is a quaint town with shops and cafes. I would recommend this trip to experience the true heart of Bavaria.

We enjoyed the day immensely. Was well worth the visit to Liderhof as we managed to see the grotto this time, something we'd never had time to see before. Oberammergau was lovely!

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.

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.

Time spent in Oberammergau was too short due to traffic getting there. Tours should be lengthened for days that traditionally have heavy traffic so that you have enough time to spend in Oberammergau.

A very good trip even though it rained. It was combined with a trip to the mountains, which meant we had to pick up people from a different destination when perhaps we could have spent longer in Oberammergau.
