Linderhof Palace, Linderhof
(4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I first saw this castle as a 14 year old and it has never left my memories. I have always wanted to return and this was the year. It does not disappoint. The castle is small, but the scale of the deco...  more »
  • Also built by Ludwig II of Bavaria, is less than the Palace of Neuschwanstein, but also great! Inspired by the Palace of Versailles, was the only one of the palaces that was done still in the monarch's life, being his favorite spot until her tragic death, on 13 June 1886, on Lake Starnberg. The King's bedroom, the dining room and especially the Hall of mirrors that is breathtaking! The gardens are beautiful, highlighting the fountain, a Cupid gold-coated, to shoot his arrow!

  • Fabulous place also cold did not prevent to enjoy this splendor! A large area, the Palace itself is small, but very interesting. We walked the halls with the Superintendent, which was similar to Ludwig | Good visit before Nojshvanshtajnom very different, but such magic ☄

  • Great small royal residence. The gardens and property are gorgeous and most of your time here will be spent outside. There is a 30 minute guided tour that takes you through the inside of the palace. Every room is intricately done. Many rooms are 24 carat gold leaf.
  • Good place to go. well maintained. But you can't see the stachus during winter
  • Very interesting palace and somewhat informative tour. I expected a little more detail and was surprised of how little of the palace was open for visitors. Still, it was a very interesting palace to view and learn about.
  • Never seen so much gold used as decoration! Not allowed to take pictures of it I'm afraid.
  • Beautiful little palace not far from Munich, worth visiting, close to other attractions of the area like Neuschwanstein castle and Oberammergau. Linderhof Palace, the eventual result of a long period of building and rebuilding, is the only large palace King Ludwig II lived to see completed. Highly recommended._
