Itinerary

Day 1

Meet your tour director at your hotel or preferred location in Munich.

We first drive south to Lake Chiemsee, where we take a boat to Herrenchiemsee Island where Ludwig II built his largest castle, Herrenchiemsee, modelled after Versailles, and where he stayed only one week.  Inside guided tour of the Palace and time to visit the Old Palace and the Ludwig Museum.

Then through the mountains into Austria where we follow the Inn valley to Innsbruck, where we'll stay tonight.

Included >  Pickup, transfer, Herrenchiemsee transportation, entrances  and tour, dinner, hotel in Innsbruck

Day 2

Today we explore Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrol.  Innsbruck is famous for many things.  Enjoy a walk through its quaint medieval lanes, see the little Golden Roof in front of the Karwendel Mountains, and the fine Baroque Church and the Hofburg, built by Empress Maria Theresia.

Time here for lunch, a chance to sample the mouth-watering traditional Austrian dishes and pastries, and time for some exploring on your own and maybe shop for Swarovski Crystal.

In the afternoon we cross back into Germany and proceed to Hohenschwangau village, for an inside visit at King Ludwig II's Neuschwanstein, Germany's most famous castle, and probably the most famous in the world, perched atop Swan Rock in the foothills of the Alps.  Neuschwanstein was designed for Ludwig by Christian Jank, a theatrical set designer, and built in the period from 1869 to 1876 incorporating the latest technologies of the day.  We have an inside tour with a local castle guide.  Marvel at the architecture, opulence, and stunning views.

Overnight in nearby Füssen.  Enjoy the location and maybe go for an evening stroll, surrounded by mountains and lakes.

Included >  Breakfast, transportation, tickets and fees for castles, dinner,
hotel in Füssen

Day 3

We leave Füssen and go for a short ride to the famous Wieskirche, the Church in the Meadow, an oval rococo church built between 1745 and 1754 as a shrine for a new sacred pilgrimage site.  The interior is decorated with frescoes and elaborate stuccowork.  The Wieskirche was restored between 1985 and 1991, and is the only monument in the region on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list

 Our next stop is Linderhof, Ludwig’s beautiful palace hidden in the mountains built between 1870 and 1879, in an elaborate rococo style recalling the Bourbon Kings, where Ludwig lived for several years.  We tour inside the palace with a local castle guide, and you have time to go for a stroll in the formal gardens.  (The Grotto is closed for extensive restoration until 2022.)

On to Oberammergau,  the village internationally famous for the Passion Play which it mounts every ten years in thanks for being spared during the bubonic plague.  Oberammergau is also known for its house frescos (Lueftl painting), woodcarvers, and Christmas shops.  You have free time to explore on your own and to shop for great souvenirs.

We return to Munich for late afternoon arrival.
