Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Royal Castle of Linderhof and Oberammergau Day Tour from Munich. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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.
Oberammergau has many neat wood carving shops. Very popular Bavarian trade, very expensive too but they do some pretty fantastic work. The Linderhof castle is the smallest but still neat to see and is on very pretty grounds. You can walk around the grotto and have a nice relaxing day. Beware of tours that charge extra for the entrance to the castles and even overcharge from the rate you'd pay if you walked up and bought them yourself when you got there. They keep from 1-3 euro on top of what you've already paid for the tour.
Good balance between visiting Linderhof and Oberammergau.
The tour was great but the tour guide was not.
Local company cancelled the trip since they thought not enough people showed up which was very disappointing. Viator did refund my money though.
