Day 2 Neuschwanstein
Join our included excursion, as we visit the village of Hohenschwangau and King Ludwig II’s famous Neuschwanstein castle (entrance included).
Built in the 19th century, the fairy tale castle is dramatically perched on a hilltop. King Ludwig encouraged plans for this German Gothic castle but unfortunately died before the end of its construction. The panoramic views from each side of the castle are truly breathtaking. Please note: during the tour of Neuschwanstein Castle you will be required to climb 165 steps and descend 181.
Day 3 Linderhof Palace
Today’s included excursion takes us across the German border to Schloss Linderhof, a palace of stunning beauty with superb landscaped gardens. Known as the 'Royal Villa' of Ludwig II, the palace originated as a hunting lodge belonging to his father, Maximilian II – the 'Königshäuschen'.
Day 4 Chiemsee
Today’s optional excursion takes us to Chiemsee, Bavaria’s largest lake, also known as ‘the Bavarian Sea’. We take a boat from the first class spa resort of Prien over to Herreninsel and to Herrenchiemsee, the largest and most expensive castle built by King Ludwig II.
In 1873, Ludwig acquired Herreninsel as the location for his Royal Palace but the actual building work didn’t start until 1878. From plans drawn by Georg Dollmann, the palace was built as a ‘Temple of Versailles’ for King Louis XIV of France, whom the king greatly admired.
Unfortunately, Ludwig never saw his Royal Palace finished and after his death in 1886, only the sections along the main axis, with their famous fountains and waterworks, were complete.
Nowadays, a visit to the most famous part of the palace is the 98-metre long 'Hall of Mirrors' and a visit to the royal bed chamber, in which no one ever slept, is also a must.
Day 5 Reutte
Today we enjoy a day at leisure in Reutte. For those with a head for heights, you may wish to take the cable car up the Hahnenkamm, or visit Burgenwelt Ehrenberg and the incredible suspension bridge.
Day 6 Oberammergau
We leave Austria and travel to the Oberammergau area to check into our overnight accommodation. Lunch will be at noon, ahead of the Passion Play.
The play has a running time of approximately five hours in total, with a meal served during the interval. The performance begins at 2:30pm* concluding around 10:30pm, with a three-hour break at 5:00pm when dinner is provided. After the performance, you will be transferred back to your accommodation.
The play is traditionally performed in German and a textbook with the complete play text is included on all tours.
* From 17th Aug-4th Oct, times for the play are as follows: performance begins at 1.30, dinner 4pm-7pm, performance ends at 9.30pm.
