Munich to Oberamergau

Hi All,

I am planning for a day stay in Oberamergau.

1.Are there any direct trains or buses from Munich. If so what are the timmings and the travel time.

2. Is there any public transport from Oberamergau to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein.

3. Any other places worth visiting?

Looking ahead for your suggestions. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

Hi Suvendu B,

No, there are no direct trains or busses that link Munich & Oberammergau (please watch spelling). The connections I saw require a change in Munich-Pasing as well as in Murnau.

You can get all the information you need on the departure time, track number, changes, etc, at the German rail site


Use the same site for information on the trip from Oberammergau to Linderhof and Neuschwanstein.

Oh yes, there are dozens of places worth visiting in/around Munich! Some of my favorites are the towns of Füssen, Murnau, and Mittenwald, and the city of Augsburg.

Have fun as you plan!

As @swandav has said, trains require change overs. Alternatively, you can travel by bus. www.bahn.com allows you to search for connections based on travel dates and times. I would recommend you include Ettal abbey. If you are staying longer, I would recommend adding Weiskirche, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Zugspitze if time permits. I recently toured Bavaria for a week in the month of May. I am based in Bangalore. If you need, I can guide you over the phone / in-person. Send me a PM. Happy travels!

While in the area you can do a visit to Ettal Abbey. On the bus line between Oberammergau and Linderhof.

In addition to Oberammergau and the other places mentioned above, you would also be close Ludwig II's other castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau (where he grew up), both if which also worth seeing. In addition, Mittenwald is also worth seeing (accessible by train).

We used Garmisch-Partenkirchen as a base and hit many of the places mentioned. It was a wonderful area to see.

Here a map showing the railways and bus lines in this area.


You can travel from Munich (all train and S-Bahn stations) to Oberammergau on a Regio-Ticket Werdenfels. Which covers what is shown on the above map.

If you stay in Oberammergau overnight you will get a guest card covering the buses in the area.



Albeit if you have to return on this day to Munich you will have to buy anyway another Regio-Ticket Werdenfels or a Bayern Ticket (if you want to travel back via Neuschwanstein and Füssen).
