Monastery of Ettal
Valley of the Etiko or Etto, approx. 1500 Ettal is laid out as “Ödtal”. Here some translations of the name Ettal: Valley of the law, valley of the marriage, valley of the Gelöbnisses, valley of the federation.
The Basilika of Ettal pulls the visitor during the whole year into its spell. From an establishment of emperor Ludwig of Bavaria in the year 1330, one the most important Benediktine monasteries of the alpine region developed here.
The well selected place, which this valley radiates, hasn´t lost anything up today of its attraction. The place is towered above of mountain summits like the “Laber” and the rocky “Ettaler Manndl”, the house mountain of the place, the “Notkarspitze”, the “Ziegelspitze” and the “Ochsensitz”.
Tourtip: Continue to mount Zugspitze or to Linderhof castle
