On the Trail of the Fairytale King -King Ludwig Way

The King Ludwig Way starts at the idyllic lake Starnberg, where the fairy tale king died so tragically, and leads through the Alpine foothills over to the castles of the Allgäu region, where he spent his youth. You walk past scenic highlights and Bavarian cultural treasures across a landscape, very much adored by this Bavarian monarch King Ludwig II which ultimately inspired him to have several castles and palaces built. On your tour little monastery towns, tranquil villages, paths past lakes and moors await you. Enjoy the fantastic panoramic views onto the Ammergauer Alps, the Zugspitze summit and the Allgäu mountains just like King Ludwig used to.
