Linderhof Castle Tours

star-5
635 Reviews
Inspired by the Palace of Versailles in France, Bavaria’s 19th-century Linderhof Castle is one of the country’s most magnificent structures. The smallest in a trio of elaborate royal palaces built by King Ludwig II (also known as the “Mad King”), Linderhof was the only one the king saw completed.

The Basics
Visitors can explore the lavish interiors of Linderhof Palace on a guided tour, stroll around the palace gardens and lakes, or opt for a combination ticket that includes entrance to all three of King Ludwig’s palaces. Travelers can also see Linderhof on a full-day tour from Munich or Fussen to visit other fairytale castles and sites along Bavaria’s famous Romantic Road. Highlights of full-day excursions include Herrenchiemsee Palace, Neuschwanstein Castle, Oberammergau village, the Ettal Monastery, and Hohenschwangau Castle—King Ludwig’s childhood home.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • In order to protect the castle’s many precious artworks, photography and filming are not allowed inside. 
  • Free Wi-Fi is available on-site.
  • Large items, backpacks, and strollers are not allowed inside the palace; storage lockers are available at the entrance.
  • Most parts of the palace are wheelchair accessible, and assistance is available on request.

How to Get There
Linderhof Palace is situated in Graswang Valley near the village of Ettal, 60 miles (97 kilometers) southwest of Munich, or roughly 90 minutes by road. The palace is also accessible by train from Oberammergau and by bus from Linderhof. 

When to Get There
Linderhof Castle is open to visitors year-round, although the palace gardens and park buildings are closed during winter. Summer is the most popular time to visit, when it’s best to visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon to miss the biggest crowds. 

Highlights of Linderhof Castle
Linderhof Castle takes its inspiration from the French King Louis XIV (also known as the “Sun King”) and the Palace of Versailles. There are numerous references to Versailles within Linderhof, including the grand Ambassador's Staircase, the Hall of Mirrors, and multiple elaborate sun frescos. The gardens surrounding Linderhof Castle are considered some of the most beautiful in Germany, combining the formal elements of baroque style and Italian Renaissance gardens with landscaped sections in the English style. Architectural highlights of the palace park include the Venus Grotto, Hunding's Hut, Gurnemanz Hermitage, and the Moroccan House.
