As a mountain activity resort (and every 10 years one of the most popular destinations in Europe) Oberammergau has a good stock of accommodation of all standards. The hotels and guesthouses tend to be a little more traditional in architecture and decoration than some of the more cosmopolitan resorts.
The village is an intermediate stop on the German Alpine Road tourist route and the location near Ettal Abbey and Linderhof Castle - as well as the village's own sights and the lovely mountain scenery - make it a good choice for a break of a day or two along the journey.
The hotels chosen are from the five-star to three-star categories - most of them at the three-star level - and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner Booking.com. You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.

The train station at Oberammergau links in to the main German rail network at Murnau (on the Munich to Mittenwald line - trains further south from Mittenwald to Innsbruck are also available). The railway station is located outside the central tourist area on the other side of the River Ammer towards the ski lifts and the road bypass.
