In Neuschwanstein and Linderhof you see 2 examples of the fairy tale world of the Bavarian court. Learn about Ludwig II, the “Swan King,” and his architectural vision. Stroll around the picturesque resort of Oberammergau on this day spent away from the city in the beautiful countryside.
Tucked away in the Bavarian mountains are the dream-like constructions of King Ludwig II. Begin at the Linderhof Palace, set in impeccably manicured gardens, and admire the striking Rococo building with typically ornate architecture.
Continue to the chocolate-box mountain village of Oberammergau and seize the opportunity to pick up a souvenir or 2. It's very difficult to resist a photo opportunity in these pretty surroundings.
Complete your tour of the Bavarian landscape at Neuschwanstein Castle. Wonder at this dramatic sight that was built in homage to Richard Wagner. It's easy to see how it also inspired the castle in Disney's Sleeping Beauty.
