Two of the most precious jewels of Bavaria, the castle of Linderhof and the village of Oberammergau can be seen during this late-departure full day tour from Munich.
The smallest of three royal castles, Linderhof was built by King Ludwig II during the 19th century as a hunting lodge. Built in French Rococo style, the castle has a fantastic grotto and Moorish pavilion which can be visited during your two hour stay.You will then travel to Oberammergau, world-famous for its woodcarvers, richly painted houses (Luftl-paintings) and Passion Play. During the Thirty Years War, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the people of Oberammergau swore an oath to perform the "Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ" every ten years. This tradition has been preserved since then, and the next Passion Play will be performed in 2020.You will have time for sightseeing and shopping in Oberammergau, before returning to Munich.
