We visited this place mainly due to the beautiful landscapes. Having visited the 2 castles a day earlier, going through the rooms within half an hour each, I must say it is kind of a blur trying to recall how different each looked. However each...More

Came here on our Globus tour. Another Ludwig disappointment. The Palace isn't very large .. I would have enjoyed the visit much more if allowed non flash photography. The coolest part of this was the grotto which was closed while we were there. I think...More

We took the tour that included this palace and Neuschwanstein Castle. Although much smaller, the inside decor is definitely more overly the top and I loved it. Most of the inspiration came from Versailles so expect about the same type of rooms - full on...More

Another of Ludwig II's castles. This one was the only completely finished of his castles and lived in. It is much smaller than you might expect, but very nice grounds. Worth seeing if you're in the area.

Linderhof Palace Ettal Bavaria Germany can be viewed by purchasing a ticket on site or in advance. It is very close to the Abbey so it is nice to combine the two into a day trip.

One of Mad Ludwig's three castles and by far the prettiest and smallest. Beautiful on the inside and out and the only one he lived in.

This is such a contrast to the nearby N castle, it's nicely laid out with a few gift shops and cafes, plus the staff seemed much friendlier than Neuchswanstein castle and surroundings. The grounds are beautiful, and somewhere you can spend a peasant few hours...More

My favourite mini castle. Stunningly beautiful with a mainly white and gold colour palate. Amazing gardens and waterfalls . Don't miss this place

Are there terrible long lines like at Neuschwanstein Castle, and do I need to reserve in advance or get skip-the-line tickets to avoid long lines?
