Oberammergau - Sunday

  • Hotel Maximilian Ettaler Str. 5 Oberammergau Germany (map)

This morning features the König Ludwig Lauf classic marathon.

The hotel offers an early pre-race breakfast this morning beginning at 6:30 am.

There is a shuttle that departs from close to the hotel at 7:30 am. Check with the hotel or race organizers at bib-pickup to confirm the location. The shuttle will run from 7:30 am until about 8:45 am, at 10 to 15 minute intervals. It takes about 10 minutes to travel from Oberammergau to the start in Ettal.

The 21 km classic race and 50km classic race both start at 9:00 am. The race will have clothing bags for you to drop off any warm-up clothes you do not wish to carry with you during the race. Once the race starts, enjoy the 21 or 50km tour of the German countryside. The race starts by skiing past the iconic monastery in Ettal, then continues through fields and woods on a relatively flat course. There are several aid stations along the way.

At the race finish, you will be able to pick up your clothes and enjoy some of the post-race snacks the race provides — including free beer! The race is in Germany after all. The award ceremony for the 21km race begins at 11:30 am. The award ceremony for the 50km race begins at 1:00 pm.

Stroll back to your hotel after the race and enjoy relaxing in their wellness area or just kicking your feet up.

Enjoy your last dinner of the trip at your hotel this evening. Prost!

The hotel asks that you please pay your tab for drinks and any other incidentals after dinner this evening, to make the checkout process quicker & easier at 4:00 am tomorrow morning.
