Follow the trace of the slightly eccentric King Ludwig II; who loved the beauty of Upper Bavaria and built some of the most beautiful palaces in the world here.
Also Walt Disney took inspiration for his Disney castle with white limestone facades and deep blue turrets. But there is more: on your way make the stop at the beautiful abbey of Ottobeuren with some of the best Baroque and Rococo style interiors in the world.
Near Oberstaufen drive past the crystal-clear waters of Grosser Alpsee alpine lake crowned by the stunning Oberjoch Pass with 106 soft bends and a stunning panorama over the valley before you reach your hotel and you can relax at the spa.

Visit the iconic parish chapel and have a coffee at Lake Koenigssee which translates to King's Lake; to enjoy some of Bavaria's most iconic views.
Near Obersalzberg (once Hitler's former retreat) we suggest to visit the WWII documentation centre to educate yourself about the darkest times of German history and the past of this innocent appearing alpine region.
The final stretch of the drive will follow the panorama route into Austria. Germany’s highest scenic road makes the gateway to reach the baroque town of Salzburg. We recommend a stroll into town and a slice of the famous cake at the Sacher Hotel.
