Time is the key to the Ammergau Alps. Those who holiday here gain a new sense of it. Whether that’s taking time out for yourself or for exercise, pleasure or peace and quiet. Time for living. Time to recharge those batteries.
In the Ammergau Alps you find yourself in the largest single conservation area in Bavaria. It is a scene of such great natural beauty – Alpine meadows and forests, mountains and picturesque valleys – that King Ludwig II of Bavaria was inspired to set his world-famous residences here. These include the fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle, styled on a medieval knight’s castle, and Linderhof Palace with its stunning rococo park.
These days, your hosts in the Ammergau Alps approach time in a very different way. On Zeitberg (‘time mountain’), for example, you can follow a four-kilometre circular trail taking in six islands of tranquillity. Mobile telephones are stowed away in the handy phone lockers at the summit for some quality time offline.
Time to discover yourself

Time for rejuvenation
The mountain pine mud of the spa resorts Bad Bayersoien and Bad Kohlgrub has long been renowned for its soothing and curative properties – this ‘black down’ is nature’s medicine. Bathing in it relaxes your muscles and joints and gives you a feeling of near weightlessness.
Get away from it all ... on foot
That is the philosophy of the pilgrims. The Ammergau Alps Meditation Trail takes you from the Wieskirche Pilgrimage Church in Steingaden, a UNESCO World Heritage site, to Linderhof Palace in the Graswang valley near Ettal.
Oberammergau stages its acclaimed Passion Play every ten years, but in the Ammergau Alps you can experience vibrant Bavarian customs at any time. Houses are adorned with traditional murals, farm hotels keep historic breeds that you’re unlikely to see anywhere else, and in bedrooms made of Swiss pine, you’ll sleep more soundly than elsewhere too.
Mobility for all – no stress and no hunting for a space
Many establishments also offer guests the KönigsCard, with which you can travel for free on all regional bus routes. An additional guide is available to help disabled visitors get their bearings in the region.
