Linderhof Castle, Andechs & Ettal monasteries, Oberammergau, Garmisch
Explore the Bavarian countryside and its beautiful back roads. Taking our private car, we enjoy meandering highways, with majestic mountain vistas, shimmering lakes, and astounding churches and monasteries. Our route is completely flexible and you can also opt for a gondola to the mountain top, a boat trip on one of the lakes, or a visit to Linderhof Palace.
Using a car, we explore the beautiful back roads to the south of Munich. The exact itinerary is flexible based on your interests and perhaps the weather. Here is a sample:
Driving south we see Lake Starnberg where Ludwig II died under mysterious circumstances. Here you can opt for a boat cruise (18 pp), or we can continue to the Andechs monastery for lunch and a tour of the church. Afterwards, I will take you through some typical Bavarian villages and we stop for cake & coffee at one of the village bakeries. Then, it's on to the Wieskirche, an UNESCO world heritage site. After viewing this amazing rococo church, we travel on to Oberammergau, site of the famous passion play. Perhaps you want to stop and browse the shops a bit, or we can continue to the Ettal Monastery for a quick visit before heading back to Munich.
Other options: Tegernsee, Bad Toelz, Linderhof Castle, or a mountain cog railway. I am happy to customize - just ask!
