Hohenschwangau to Linderhof to Innsbruck by bus

Hi: I have two days or really just a portion of 2 days. Day 1: I am planning to spend the night in Hohenschwangau and view castles early the next morning. I was then hoping to visit the Linderhof either later that afternoon or maybe more realistically on Day 2 in the morning. On day 2, I need to be in Innsbruck at 2:00 pm to take a bus south. I realize the travel is a bit difficult but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to where I should stay after leaving Hohenschwangau. I was thinking maybe it would be best to stay in Oberammergau or Ettal to make the Linderhof more easily accessible if I were to visit the morning of Day 2. Since I am relying on public transport, I would like to be a location that would allow me to get to Innsbruck without much trouble. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you in advance

You connection options will depend on the weekday. I think Linderhof late afternoon (e.g. Hohenschwangau dep 12:53 Linderhof arr 15:05) is more realistic than early morning. If you do Linderhof late afternoon you could proceed Garmsich-Partenkirchen or Mittenwald to stay overnight. Mittenwald is nice and this would be ticket wise the cheapest option. Bayern Ticket (EUR 23,00) for day 1 and VVT ticket Mittenwald to Innsbruck on day 2 (EUR 10,00).

Abalada:

Thank you for the detailed information. After further study and timetable review, I too was thinking about your suggestion. My only concern is what to do with our luggage when arriving at Linderhof. And yes, I would prefer to stay in either Mittenwald or GP. Do you have a hotel you favor in Mittenwald close to station?
