Zugspitze is the highest peak of the Wetterstein Mountains and the highest mountain in Germany. Enjoy a trip to the Bavarian Alps and get immersed in Bavarian culture in this day trip from Munich, Germany to Zugspitze.
Your day starts at 8:30 am. That is when your guide picks you up from your hotel lobby. You’ll get in the air-conditioned car and travel on the Autobahn, which is Germany’s highway system.
The first stop of your adventure is Abbey of Ettal. Abbey of Ettal is a picturesque Benedictine monastery in Ettal in Bavaria. Beer and Schnapps are made on the premises. So you will definitely like this stop!
The next stop on the tour is Oberammergau. You can take your time here and shop in Oberammergau’s stores. They have a lot of stores that sell handmade ornaments and Christmas decorations.
The next stop on the tour is Linderhof Palace. You get to stop there for a tour along with a walk in the rolling meadows.
After all this sightseeing, you’ll be ready for lunch. This takes place at a pristine Alpine Lake overlooking the Alps. The views alone make the lunch, but I suspect you’re also going to really love the Austrian beer and schnitzel!
Then you are just 30 minutes from the famous Neuschwanstein Castle! This is such an iconic castle that you may have heard about from a variety of sources. But to me, it will always be the castle that inspired Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty’s Castle! There are so many amazing opportunities here when you walk up to the castle, especially on Mary’s Bridge.
After you’ve visited this famous Castle, you’ll head back to your car. Then you will get driven back to your hotel in Munich at around 7:30 PM. You’ll really feel you’ve gotten a good appreciation of Bavaria at the end of this tour.
