  • Herrenchiemsee - King Ludwig

    This is Bavarian King Ludwig's II largest castle.

    The king decided to make a replica of Versailles,

    but only managed to build the central portion before funds ran out.

    What exists is very impressive, with French gardens,

    a big hall of mirrors,

    and a state room

    where classical concerts

    are held.

    This palace is located on

    an island named

    "Herreninsel"

    in the lovely lake Chiemsee.
