King Ludwig 2nd's most famous castles
In one day we will have the opportunity to not only visit King Ludwig 2nd's most famous folly, Neuschwanstein castle, but also we will visit the charming traditional village of Oberammergau which is famous for the 10 yearly "PASSION PLAY" and it's wood carving traditions. The last wonderful stop will be at the stunning Linderhof Palace, King Ludwigs' homage to the Bourbon Kings of France.
Although Linderhof is much smaller than Versailles, it is evident that the palace of the French Sun-King Louis XIV (who was greatly admired by King Ludwig) was it's inspiration.
This is a wonderful trip through the fantasy world of Bavaria's most famous royal and you will also view some of the most intoxicating alpine scenery.
I will collect you from your hotel with a chauffeur driven 6 seater mini van and we will begin our lovely 2 hour drive through Bavaria to Neuschwanstein Castle.
After our visit to the Neuschwanstein castle we will drive directly to the quaint, historical Bavarian village of Oberammergau for lunch at the village's oldest guest house (Hotel Alte Post). From here it is an approx. 20 minute drive (12 klms) to Linderhof Castle.
After our visit to Linderhof we will drive back to Munich. (travel time is just under 2 hours , depending on traffic).

Great great tour. Maxine allowed us to adapt the tour by going to the Zugspitze and Linderhof instead of Neuschwanstein -- and it was FANTASTIC. She knows a ton about the area and clearly loves what she does. Our 15- year old nephew enjoyed her insights as much as we did. You will not be disappointed in this tour. It is top-notch. 10 stars! Caution: If you love a boring tour with stale information you can read in any two-bit guidebook, and want to wait in long lines, this one is not for you.
