Light Walk from Oberammergau to Schloss Linderhof

  • Apr 21, 2012 · 7:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

I have not done this walk before but it looks pretty easy (about 13km) and should be amazing with snow on the mountains (views of the Zugspitze) if the weather is clear. Schloss Linderhof in itself is a treat (and I am pretty sure that entrance to the grounds is free). Oberammergau is very touristy but fun if you want to see that too on the way back (depends on the group and the time).

The train to Oberammergau leaves at 6.30 from platform 27 and takes 1hour 50 mins with a change at Murnau. Lets meet in the entrance to Hauptbahnhof next to the flower shop at 7.am and organise groups for Bayern tickets. Here are details of the walk. http://goo.gl/1Xk6P We can take the bus back.

I would anticipate getting back at around 6pm - 7.30 (difficult to estimate this, could be earlier).

Since this is a light walk, no special equipment is needed and slower walkers are really free to join - no rush here, it will be a day to enjoy the scenery more than anything else.

    Michael S. So far, Pegah is also doing that. It is difficult to judge how many people will really join tomorrow but I think we can safely say that there will be at least 8-10 people. So why dont you go ahead and get your ticket and meet us at the flower shop. We will meet Pegah on the train. I will also email you my cell number in case. If you are not at the flower shop at 7.05 though we will go ahead as if you are not coming. I am sure that you are reliable but maybe you just cannot make it.

    i think i might be wise to buy some "Bayern tickets" earlier. so those who do not own a mvv "Monatskarte" save some money.
    i would like to buy a "Bayern ticket" at my local train station. is that possible?
    everyone who needs the S4 _from_ Ebersberg may join me.

  • Gabor K.

    Ok Garry, I'll call you in the evening! cheers

    For those who don't know where the flower shop is: The flowershop is exactly at the entrance of the Haupbahnhof, when you come inside from bahnhofplatz (see in the map). It is a big nice shop, and in front of it are all the train lines that drive out of city.

    What I am thinking Pegah, is that whoever manages to wake up and get to the Hauptbahnhof for 7 will then be split into groups for the Bayern tickets. It will be much easier to arrange once we have everyone together in a one place physically (compared to last time). I will give everyone my number once there, in case someone gets lost. I already emailed Gabor my number because he will probably meet us on the way.

    I guess it is time that people say if they would be coming or not. So first we have an estimate about the bayernticket, and second Gary can exchange phone numbers just in case if someone get lost ...

    Pegah is right, the weather seems nice enough (and I decided to update the post today rather than Thu). I have changed the time too. Lets meet at 7am at the flower shop at the entrace to Hauptbahnhof. Gabor, that is at 08:42 platform 2 at Murnau or 09:21 at Oberammergau. Send me an email if you are going to Murnau and I will keep a space for you on my Bayernticket

    Hi Roxana. At the moment the weather outlook is not good but I will wait till Thu and then if it is still bad then I will move it to the following weekend, and one hour later (good idea since it is not a long walk - I just set this up based on a previous walk which was longer).

    April 16, 2012

  • Roxana

    Hey guys, are you sure you want to leave 6:00 :-)??

    If the weather is cloudy, I will move this walk to the following Saturday or Sunday, or possibly to Sunday the 22(will have to change my Sun plans to do this but for good weather it will be worth it) because without clear weather we won't be able to see the mountains. And, yes I will definitely organise more walks like this Lana : )

    I won't be able to join this walk this time (away from Munich that week) but I hope there will be more trips like this.

    Hi Gabor. We could meet at Murnau. You could get on the train there because we have to change there. The train leaves from Murnau at 07:42 from platform 4 RB 59557. Or we can meet at Oberammergau. The train arrives there at 8.21.

    Hi Gary, nice to hear about a new program! I would like to attend, and have a question: as you know I live in Wolfratshausen, 30Km south from München. Is there any way we can meet somewhere, so I don't have to go to the Haupbanhof that early? Cheers, Gabor
