Zugspitz Tour in a Volkswagen Beetle
Zugspitz Tour – Bavarian and Austrian Alps
Day 1 From Munich to Germany’s highest peak along the river Isar
The Bavarian lakes follow one another like blue pearls on a thread. Lake Starnberg, Staffelsee, Kochelsee, Walchensee, Eibsee. There can be no doubt, however, that the mountains and the road passes of the Wetterstein massif and the Karwendel range play the starring role on this trip. Nowhere else in Germany are the mountains as impressive as in this beautiful part in the South. All the more so when you can enjoy these vistas not only from a Beetle Convertible, but also from the 2,000 square metre spa area of your hotel. A five-course-dinner in the awarded restaurant of the Hotel Post rounds up a perfect day.
Day 2 Ettal Abbey and the Starnberg Lake
Today the tour takes you to Ammergau region, which includes a few of the best known and most frequently visited tourist destinations in Bavaria: the most important castle of fairytale king Ludwig II, ‘Neuschwanstein’, the Abbey of Ettal and Oberammergau. The local wood carvers, fresco painters and, of course, the Passion Plays have made this region well-known far beyond the Alps. The deep roots of Catholic faith have combined here with the upholding of tradition and artistic craftsmanship. The wood carvers have become famous for their fi gures of Christ, while the painters have become renowned for their giant frescoes on house façades, most depicting religious themes, and the theatrical depiction of the Passion Christ. Every decade during Oberammergau’s Passion Play the entire cast is drawn exclusively from locals.
Day 3 Linderhof Palace and the Franz Marc Museum
Also the last day offers cultural highlights that you can visit: Linderhof Palace and the Franz Marc Museum being the best known of these. The smallest of the ‘King’s Castles’, this is a jewel of the Rococo style and provides deep insights into the spiritual life of the ‘fairytale king’ of Bavaria, Ludwig II. In the afternoon, return drive to Munich follows the Starnberg lakeshore.

Wetterstein, Ammergau und Karwendel
Wetterstein, Karwendel and Ammergau are located in southern Bavaria and are the first massifs in the pre-Alpine region along the border with Austria. The undisputed highlight of the Wetterstein massif is the highest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitze. With its summit reaching an altitude of 2962 metres, it is the highest mountain peak in the Wetterstein range in the eastern Alps. The Zugspitze massif lies to the South-West of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria and in the North of Tyrol. The border between Germany and Austria bisects its western summit. The most beautiful and most majestic view of the Zugspitze is to be found on the Austrian side, when seen from Lermoos.
