Herrenchiemsee Palace

The palace was commissioned by King Ludwig II in 1873—a great admirer of King Louis XIV of France, and his palace in Versailles. In 1878, with the help of an architect, Ludwig's rococo-style French castle was built on the island of Chiemsee, overlooking a large lake. More than 20 rooms are open to the public, showcasing the ambitious style of Ludwig, including stucco marble, ornate carvings, pristine pendant chandeliers and a room of mirrors. Adult: 8€ (palace, museum &  galleries in the Augustinian Monastery also on Chiemsee).
