Linderhof Palace in southwest Bavaria near Ettal Abbey.
It is the smallest of the three palaces built by
King Ludwig II of Bavaria
and the only one which he lived to see completed.

Linderhof has a rather private atmosphere,
in fact, there are only four rooms that have a real function.

- made a guided tour inside,
but no photos was allowed
Beautiful garden
surrounded by mountains and woods

The fountain can reach up to 25m high

Linderhof is a kind of miniatyr Versailles,
lots of giulded ornaments inside,
topiary gardens around

The water parterre in front of the castle
is dominated by a large basin
with the gilt fountain group "Flora and puttos"

This house had really been built in Morocco
for the International Exhibition in Vienna 1873.
The king bought it in 1878 and l
et it decorate in a more royal way.

- don't know for sure if it's open for public,
at least it was closed now
Fresh Alpine stream next to the parking lot
