Return to Munich for an evening at leisure. (B)

Munich – Oberammergau – Neuschwanstein Castle – Munich

This morning, travel to Oberammergau, the town famous for more than the Passion Play. Oberammergau has stunning frescos on the homes depicting religions scenes, Bavarian themes and fairytales. Continue to the ethereal Neuschwanstein Castle, sculptured out of the mountains. This castle was built in the 19th century by the famed “mad” King Ludwig II, a man intoxicated by the mythology and who himself became a legend.
