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.

  • Is tastefully made Ludwig's Neuschwanstein castle was built in the same fi is felt quite differently. Instead of Castle "revivalism", such as "amusement park" in the Neuschwanstein Castle, Linderhof Castle was a castle in the sense of really practical, and excellent. I like this better.

  • Visited the Palace organized a one-day tours from Munich. The Palace and Park were Government 1:00 It is very little. Be sure to visit, you will not regret. Interesting and the Palace itself and its surroundings. Everything is done with great taste. There are Zimmers-stay for the night. You will not regret.

  • Linderhof Castle Park is definitely worth a visit. We did a tour in the Castle and in the Venus Grotto. It was really very interesting. Unfortunately, the Venus Grotto because of a large restoration is closed the next 5 years. But the park itself is worth a visit in any case.

  • Excellently preserved example of Ludwig II's extravagance. The tour guides were enthusiastic and knowledgable. The grounds are very well maintained. This castle is less well known than Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, and so it's much more accessible and intimate.
  • This is the most intimate of the Bavarian palaces, also off the beaten track but in some ways even more beautiful and ornate than Neuschwanstein. The gardens outside are beautiful, and don't miss the outbuildings if you have time. Photos don't do this place justice. Plus you're not quite as overrun by tourists.
  • Palace is great for seeing the madness that was the Bavarian King. The guy truly was off his rocker. It's like the castle an assigned tour time. So get there early and be prepared to wait. Waiting though isn't bad as the gardens are beautiful. The fountain fires about every 30 minutes at the top and bottom of the hour so be ready.
  • Fantastic, kind of small, palace and grounds. The entire site is very well maintained and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the visit.
  • It would take one day to visit there, it is about two and a half hours (by bus) from Munich, however it is worth the trip. It's one the palaces built by Ludwig 2nd. You'll get the chance to know about the excess of life of the monarchy in Bavaria at the 19th century. There are some tours that take you there for about 54 euro. Pictures inside are not allowed.
