Day 6: September 19, 2020

Bavaria-Oberammergau

Today we will visit the magical Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles.  These were the residences of King Ludwig II of Bavaria.  An eccentric recluse, Ludwig depleted the treasury of his country building extravagant castles and died in mysterious circumstances. Neuschwanstein seems unreal in its romantic Alpine setting and Linderhof is certainly the most elaborate “hunting lodge” you will ever see!  In the afternoon we will visit the fabulous Rococo Weiskirche—it looks somewhat plain and simple on the outside, but just wait until you see the breathtaking interior. We’ll travel to our hotel in Oberammergau for the highlight of our tour.(B, D)

Meals : Breakfast, Dinner
Day 7: September 20, 2020

Bavaria: Oberammergau

This morning we’ll get to explore Oberammergau, a delightful town that has been home to skilled wood carvers since the 12th century.  There are many interesting things to see in this quaint town. Scenes from the scriptures and from fairy tales are painted on the walls of buildings.  We will attend the marvelous Passion Play, which has been performed by the town’s inhabitants every ten years since 1634—when the thirty years war and the deadly bubonic plague killed almost half the population of Germany.  The people of Oberammergau vowed to produce this play each decade if they could be spared.  They were, and here we are 350 years later!
