Am Abend nach Führungsschluss hat man den Schlosspark fast für sich alleine und es herrscht eine magische Stimmung.

Destination

Linderhof Palace - Ettal/Linderhof

Turn-by-turn directions

This hike begins at Oberammergau railway station and continues along the River Ammer for about 3 kilometres upstream. Sonnenweg leads off to the right towards Linderhof at the large bridge in the Weidmoos nature conservation area.

When you arrive on the small tarred road, first turn left and then right towards Linderhof. The route will take you past farmsteads and Graswang and continues on Kohlbachweg.

A gentle climb brings you to a hiking trail that leads across meadows and through a wood. You do not begin your descent to the Palace Gardens on your left until after you have reached a gate shortly before Linderhof. The destination of the hike, Linderhof Palace, has been reached.
