Create an itinerary including Schloss Linderhof
Marvel at the beautiful architectural design of King Ludwig II's Schloss Linderhof, the only residence he lived to see completed. Originally a historic hunting lodge, the 19th-century palace is set in the Graswang valley. It features historic landscaped gardens with fountains, monuments, and an artificial grotto. Tour the royal palace to admire the famous Hall of Mirrors and Versailles-inspired grand staircase. You can venture outside to take in the beautiful Rococo-influenced exterior of the building. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes for wandering the 50 hectares (125 acres) of palace gardens. Take a look at our Ettal route builder website to schedule your visit to Schloss Linderhof and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • We did an English tour of the palace and it was nice. You tour a few beautiful rooms full of gold, a massive bed, and some beautiful art and antiques, and the whole tour is about 25 minutes. No pictures allowed, but dogs are allowed inside if they’re carried. The grounds are lovely. The gift shop has good variety and there’s a cafe. Parking cost 3€. I would recommend coming early to beat the crowds and book your tour online.
  • One of our favorite palaces to visit and the one where Ludwig II lived the most time. Massive fountain... just wait for the timed display. The best part was that nearly the whole Palace is available to tour (most others tour a very limited portion). The palace is in excellent shape, as are the gardens and fountains. Also much easier to get in to the tour than some other.
