HISTORY

First race: 17th March 1968, 90km & 45km, altogether 796 participants

Highest number of participants in main race: 3700 (1983)

Worldloppet membership: founding member

The König Ludwig Lauf was born in 1967 in an Oberammergau Wirtshaus, the idea of Fritz Lang and Benedikt Stueckl. Their aim was to create a popular cross-country ski race that would be longer than the world-famous Vasaloppet. Vasaloppet at that time was 89 km in length and so the original König Ludwig Lauf course was set at 90 km.

COURSE

The König Ludwig Lauf takes place in one of the most scenic parts of Germany, the wildlife sanctuary ‘Ammergebirge’ and the organisers, together with 400 volunteers; have to work in very close cooperation with the forestry department to ensure that the environment stays totally unharmed. The start for all races is in Ettal and the main race follows the route from Ettal to Graswang, Linderhof and back to the sports centre in Oberammergau. The area has been described as a paradise for cross-country skiing.
