Linderhof

This castle (complete in four years, 1874-78) was used by Ludwig more frequently than the other castles.  It was completely furnished, and was designed for one person, Ludwig.  Flights of fancy include the Grotto and Moorish Pavilion (which Ludwig purchased after seeing it at an Exposition in Paris).   Located in the Allagauer Alps the setting for this castle is really beautiful.

Ludwig was called "the Night King" by the local people around Linderhof because he would often go for rides around the countryside in an elaborate sleigh with an electric light, and always at night.

Herrenchiemsee

Continuing his fascination with Louis XIV prompted Ludwig to build his own Versailles, a short distance from Munich.  The Castle (or Palace) was partly completed, and much of it remains a shell.

Thank you, Odette! Bavaria is one of my most favorite places in the whole world. We're blessed to have this region so near, so that we can spend family holidays there whenever we like. I suppose ZING is our new motto, I missed a lot of things lately...Emm, ZING then! Beer
