Bavarian Castle Series: – #1 – Linderhof Castle

8 Comments

Tired of your things collecting dust? Well take a look at this!

Things could be worse. You could have been a chamber maid in one of King Ludwig’s castles.linderhof-castle-1a

When imagining a castle most people think of Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria Germany.
And since Walt Disney copied it, well, I guess it’s the most known castle on this planet.

 

Have you ever been inside?

I have… at least a dozen times. I live only an hour from the Bavarian castle,
so of course it’s on the top of the sightseeing list, when house guests come to visit.

This time, though, we took our nine-year old granddaughter to another castle;…a castle that may not be as impressive from the outside, but inside, it’s like every little girl would imagine a castle to be.

It’s called Schloß Linderhof,
named after all the lovely weeping  willows ( Linde in German). The castle truly is like a fairy tale castle, and although King Ludwig was known to be a little off his rocker… we have him to  thank for all these beautiful attractions in Bavaria, Germany. We also have his family to thank, who — over many generations painstakingly paid off the King’s debts and kept up these incredible monuments.

Slide show of my impressions.

Unfortunately, this ingenious man King Ludwig II of Bavaria was declared insane in 1886. And now, after around 120 years after his death, scientists are saying that he was a one of the pioneers of flight, and has drafted ingenious aeronautical designs.

Hope you stop by again, and if you like,

please leave a comment! I read, reply,  and visit your blog too!  🙂

I'm an author on the go. Give me a caravan, laptop, camera, and Hubby at my side, ( not exactly in that order), and I'm on a 'roll'.

  7. I remember visiting Neuschwanstein back in the 60s, but not this one. Pretty spectacular! Great photos, Angelika. Ludwig and Midas definitely had something in common. So much glitz!
