King Ludwig Trail
The King Ludwig Trail opened in 1977 and is a long-distance hiking trail named after King Ludwig II of Bavaria. The trail begins in Berg on Lake Starnberg in Bavaria, where Ludwig II was born in 1886, and ends in Fussen, Germany at the foot of the Bavarian Alps. This trail measures nearly 120km and is perfect for your holiday with hiking and walking in Bavaria.
After starting in Berg, the King Ludwig Trail leads to Starnberg to Herrsching am Ammersee. You can also take a boat to Pöcking, shortening the total length of the hiking trail. The ship takes passengers to the town of Diessen on the southern end of the Ammersee lake. The trail then leads to the Wessobrunn Abbey, the towns of Peiting and Rottenbuch, the pilgrimage church of Wies and the district of Trauchgau.
You can reach Fussen’s old town and the Altstadthotel Zum Hechten via Hohenschwangau with its world-famous Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castles.
