Why Travelers Choose This Tour
It's the only tour that allows you plenty of time to stroll around the Rococo-style Linderhof Castle's enchanting grotto. And in Oberammergau, you'll be blown away by the intricate paintings on the houses.
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.
