Explore this historic region where Bavaria meets Austria - mountains in all directions, sparkling sapphire lakes, fairytale castles and storybook villages - and food, delicious food! Our itinerary reflects the wide variety of landscape and culture of these intriguingly similar, but different, neighbours, where the old traditions are still very much a part of daily life.
We hear the story of King Ludwig ll, sometimes known as The Dream King and sometimes as The Mad King. We visit the opulent jewel of Linderhof, his favorite palace. In Austrias Tyrolean Alps we stay in a family-run hotel in charming St Jakob in Haus and dine in Salzburg in St Peters Keller, Europe's oldest restaurant.
