A recent review of our King Ludwig Way walk summed the trip up as “a really German holiday”, and another as “seeing beautiful Bavaria at grass roots”.
By “really German”, we don’t think they mean laden with cliché! Yes, there are tourist draws along the way, which are fascinating to see, but by walking the route you’ll see so much more local culture and remote beauty along the way, and have a real (real) experience of Germany.
Distance: 109 km
Follow one of Germany’s best known footpaths, through beautiful Upper Bavaria to King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle.
If you love history & culture, the monasteries, fairy-tale castles (who doesn’t love a fairy tale castle?), the vibrant frescos in Wieskirche, and the land filled with legends will leave you fascinated.
The walking is pretty good too! Forests & meadows, the stunning gorge of the Ammerschlucht and views of the alps combine to make each day special.
The route was featured in Julia Bradbury’s BBC “German Wanderlust” series.
Macs adventure offer a 7 night self guided walking itinerary, which includes accommodation, baggage transfer each day, and all the route notes and info you’ll need. The walking holiday is available from May – October. Contact [email protected] if you’d like more information, or get the full lowdown on the King Ludwig Way walk on our website.
We hope our Walk of the Week series inspires you to try a new trail (or add another to your list!).
