First of all: if you expect a steril site without any maintenance equipments this is not your place to be. Linderhof is a beautiful little treasure in the Bavarian Alps which requires extra care from the Bavarian state when it comes to maintenance: the frost...More

Its nice place to see hidden in the forest. Its close to Oberammergau and Ettal. You can get easily from there by car or public transportation. Also in shiny weather you can bike.

We visited the linderhof palace where we could only view the rooms guided by a tour guide who gave us a brief 20 min history on the palace. It was a stunning and oppulent palace filled with gold embellishments. Note that photos aren't allowed to...More

Very good tour in English, lots of information about King Ludwig and the castle. The tour was short enough to keep out teenagers engage.

I’m sure it’s great when fully restored but when we went the gardens were covered in scaffolding and the rear the same, with a few bright yellow cranes hovering in the skyline. The inside is pretty spectacular in a faux Versailles style and interesting food...More

We had a private English tour and my family loved it, it was very well paced and informative. The gardens are closed during the winter but there is enough to see even though they are closed.

If I remember well there is a kiosk outside where you can buy a coffee or a light snack. Just walking distance. We took a picnic with us and it was acceptable so I did not really bother to check about food on offer.
