Ludwig 2 had a tough life trying to emulate Louis 14 etc and either committed suicide or was killed while still young He did however create three really great palaces and this miniature Versailles is a delight if slightly over the top Very reasonable ticket...More

We visited here with a tour group in November which was nice because it was no so busy. Baroque design and very opulent where King Ludwig spent a lot of his time.

This was the best out of all King Ludwig's castles. The grounds are fantastic with beautiful gold statues in the lakes. Lovely fountains and flowers to walk in. The guide was brilliant and the interior of the castle was historic and interesting. A must if...More

We decided to drop by Linderhof Palace on our way from Innsbruck to Munich to break up the journey and we couldn't have made a better choice. As the only palace King Ludwig II completed before his untimely death, Linderhof palace was no less extravagant...More

The setting is in the middle of now where, and it's very tranquil. By palace standards, it's very small, but thats part of the appeal. I wouldn't need 100 rooms of pure opulence, just a dozen or so. And it's just for me, no other...More

This is an excellent tour, this is a small palace built purely for the eccentric King Ludwig II's personal use. The tour is 30 minutes long with a guide and it covers the many extravagant rooms and King Ludwig's obsession with the Palace of Versailles...More

We visited the palace in the afternoon after visiting Neuschwanstein Palace in the morning which was built by the same king. It was great seeing both in one day as they are two completely different palaces but equally beautiful in their own ways. The inside...More

Beautiful palace with beautiful scenery. I would have loved to spent more time here, but the tour we were a part of (and outside group, not Linderhofs fault!) rushed us through. Save about 2 extra hours before or after the tour...it takes a while to...More
