Linderhof Palace is the smallest one among all castles Ludwig II had built. The construction process continued from 1870 to 1886. Linderhof castle was fully completed during the king’s lifetime and decorated with great pomp in rococo style. Although little knew, the walls were actually made of wood and covered with plaster, which is unnoticeable at first glance. The surrounding area amazes with an architectural’s whims variety namely Moroccan House, Moorish Kiosk, Hunding’s Hut, Gurnemanz Hermitage. The famous Venus Grotto has been the site of numerous live music concerts. Nowadays, 50 hectares of the garden surrounded by the typical alpine landscape is opened for visitors.

How to get to the castle?

Linderhof has situated 96 km from Munich near the village of Ettal in the midst of a nature reserve. Traveling by car is the directest way to get there. It will provide you with the freedom of visiting other places situated nearby like the charming town of Garmish-Partenkirchen in 30 km or the other Ludwig’s II castles in 20 km. But there is one important advantage of using public transport too. It allows you to try the finest Bavarian beer in legendary local breweries. Take a train to Oberammergau then change to the bus 9622 that goes straight to Schloss Linderhof. Whatever you decide, one full day is rightly and earnestly recommended for this trip as a minimum.
