DAY2: LEG 1 - GERMAN ALPINE ROAD DRIVE: OBERJOCH PASS & NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE

 

Leave Munich via the German autobahn towards Lake Constance. From here the scenic Three Lakes Route will take you through Bavaria near the picturesque town of Füssen; where you will be based for the night below the famous Neuschwanstein Castle.

 

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.

Stay near Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria 

DAY 3: LEG 2 - GERMAN ALPINE ROAD DRIVE: LINDERHOF PALACE

& LAKE TEGERNSEE

 

Today visit one more Kind Ludwig palace and two of the most beautiful Benedictine Monasteries in the world. The drive will also take you over the gently winding bridge crossing the Sylvenstein dam.

 

But before leaving Füssen, we recommend visiting the museum of the Bavarian Kings — spotlighting the royal Wittelsbach family and especially King Ludwig II.

After the museum drive a short loop into Austria to ensure the most scenic route following the shores of Lake Plansee to the ornate Linderhof Palace in Bavaria.

From here the German Alpine Route will take you via colourful villages to the shores of Lake Tegernsee at the foot of the massive Wallberg.

Stay at Lake Tegernsee, Bavaria

DAY4: LEG 3 - GERMAN ALPINE ROAD DRIVE: BERCHTESGADEN ALPS & SALZBURG IN AUSTRIA

 

In the morning pick up a stretch of the autobahn to skip the narrow section of the German Alpine Road and reach the Berchtesgaden Alps in no time. 

 

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.

Stay at Salzburg, Austria

& HERRENCHIEMSEE CASTLE

 

Spend the day at Salzburg to explore the town before you head back via the Autobahn to Munich in Germany.

 

Visit the birthplace of the genius composer Mozart, take a stroll through the Old Town and conquer the local fortress above the town.

 

The direct drive back to Munich on the autobahn is approximate 2 hours — we expect you round 6 PM and will collect the car from your hotel.

For those who can't get enough of Bavaria's beauty we recommend to visit the island of Herrenchiemsee for another King Ludwig's castle; inspired by Versailles.
