Linderhof Palace, Ettal

Marvel at the beautiful architectural design of King Ludwig II's Linderhof Palace, 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. Take a look at our Ettal route builder website to schedule your visit to Linderhof Palace and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • I disagree that this Bavarian Versailles. This place is really very beautiful, especially in may, when a young Greens everywhere grow Edelweiss! Nature is fascinating. In the Palace are richly and tastefully, although he is very small compared to others. But that's the beauty. I advise you to go on the Park and go upstairs-enjoy!

  • We enjoyed the visit. The palace is quite small, but lots and lots of gold everywhere. You can only take a guided tour. Ticket is 8,5 eur. There is a nice garden infornt of the palace, too.  more »
  • Luis II Palace fantastic, where is perceived by all sides the imitation of the Sun King, that on the other hand not concealed in any way. And that you became a constant in European courts. Result: another splendid palace. Spectacular.

  • This palace was absolutely amazing inside. My entire family really enjoyed the whole experience. If you ever get the chance, stop by this beautiful palace. I promise you won't be disappointed.
  • My 13 day Alpine Adventure included the English guided tour in Linderhof Palace. It's good to protect the artifacts inside the palace. Need some restoration as some of the paints are chipping off. You can enjoy the garden and park after.
  • Good things: -not expensive -beautiful landscape -Amazing for photography -one of the most fine detailed palaces I've seen from Ludwigs II array of mansions -very big area with multiple things to see, it'll take you at least around 2 hours to fully enjoy the whole experience. -Great hotel at the entrance -just in between a valley so you'll have an outstanding view of the lower alps -Great beer garden So so things: -around the massive green area surrounding the main palace you won't find many indications, so you could miss out on certain things unless you ask or have a detailed map. -The tour lasts only 20 minutes, disappointed since I had many questions to ask. I heard there is a longer tour you can do but there is no info about it on the website, it also states you can't book ahead of time so it's really confusing on how to do it. Conclusion: I loved it. Recommended during summer to enjoy the flowers and heat and enjoying a delicious beer at the beer gardens
  • If you have thing for French Roccoco style, you will love this place! Small but ornate. This was King Ludwig's favorite. The gardens are beautiful as well.
  • It was very nice views. But tours guides ruched you, and do not allow to take pictures at all!! In Versaille Palace you can really enjoy, take pictures, and you can do your own turn!! Also. In the amazing Munich Residence you can take pictures and do your own tour!! Is value for money.
