Schloss Linderhof, Ettal

Marvel at the beautiful architectural design of King Ludwig II's Schloss Linderhof, the only residence he lived to see completed. Originally a historic hunting lodge, the 19th-century palace is set in the Graswang valley. It features historic landscaped gardens with fountains, monuments, and an artificial grotto. Tour the royal palace to admire the famous Hall of Mirrors and Versailles-inspired grand staircase. You can venture outside to take in the beautiful Rococo-influenced exterior of the building. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes for wandering the 50 hectares (125 acres) of palace gardens.

  • Were here about 5 years ago. The constant repair work is a little spoiled by the impression. But what can you do - it is necessary. And in everything else - BEAUTY!!!

  • Beautiful palace. And the tour inside was amazing. Truly unexpected to be beautiful to that extent. So much detail in everything. The guided tour is nice as well! You get a lot of background on the King and the structures.
  • Ludwig II was the best kind of mad. This is an excellent palace inspired by Versailles which, at a fraction of its size, has nothing to envy as to the ornamental and artistic quality of the furnished rooms it has. The surrounding gardens are superb. The English guide was fun.
