Follow a flaming heart to inner peace and serenity in unspoiled nature with exquisite cultural treasures. Experience a pilgrimage to yourself - with the Meditation Trail in the Ammergau Alps guiding you.
To appreciate the Meditation Trail, you need not be a religious person. You will discover new strength along the trail, find yourself while leaving behind the hectic pace and stress of daily life - one step at a time. During your hike through a region where nature is still intact and cultural treasures abound, you will hike through tranquil towns, pass beautiful sights such as the Passion Theater in Oberammergau and the Kloster Ettal monastery or the wildly romantic Ammertal valley, explore the Hörnle Aussichtsberg (Lookout Mountain) or - not far from Bad Kohlgrub - the marshy grounds of the Moor shrouded in mystery.
The Meditation Trail leads from the Wieskirche church near Steingaden to Schloss Linderhof, King Ludwig's castle located in the Graswangtal valley near Ettal.
Physical, intellectual and spiritual renewal

Explore the various stations along the trail to draw strength and at the same time immerse yourself in the history of this vacation region.
