Herrenchiemsee Palace is an almost exact replica of Versailles, the residence of the French king Louis XIV.

Oberammergau, Oberammergau, Upper Bavaria, Bavaria
Shortly after visiting Linderhof we reach Oberammergau, where your guide can give you a 15 min. tour, especially for explaining the famous wallpaintings and the Passion play theatre. Little shops offer local souvenirs. The regional speciality are wood carvings.
If you want to see (and understand) another baroque masterpiece concerning church decorations, inserted in a 12-page domed room from the 14th century, you should follow your guide in the Ettal Benedictine monastery, just 5 minutes’ drive away from Oberammergau.
From there it will take another hour back to Munich and your guide brings you safe through the rushhour back to your hotel or your address in Munich.
