Getting up to Mad King Ludwig's mountain retreat takes some effort (on foot or bike are the only options) but it is "oh so worth it". Konigshaus and the nearby Linderhof are the only 2 residences he actually finished and used, and both shed a...More

Did the "kings way" from Elmau. Really recommendable, we did the "enhanced" version with the steep hike after the Wettersteinalm plus the Kälbersteig down. You need good hiking shoes and water/food. We did the hike in 5h net.

My husband and I decided to take this hike based on the fact that we thought it was gonna be about 6 hours roundtrip. I think that's based off of if you take no stops and you keep a steady pace. The whole hike is...More

after a long and hard hike up to the top, or bike-ride, when seeing this little castle is just something really special. Especially because you have to earn this view. This is worth a visit 100% and nobody who likes the mountains should miss out...More

Quite astonishing views from King Ludwig's summer folly. Don't even try it if you are unfit or suffer from vertigo. This is a serious hike uphill which will take about 5 hours from the Olympic ski station. It is worth it but you need proper...More

We walked a round-about way, which ended up being 17 miles and 1 mile vertical. We followed the road to Reintal after the gorge, which was pretty slight but steady incline; then straight up the back of the mountain at Schachen. I'll attach the gps...More

Really gotta do a reality check there. We went up with the mountanbikes, so it was a fantastic uphill with some nice views. First part is a bit boring, but once you're out of the forest it is nice. And then, at the top, there...More
