Herrenchiemsee - King Ludwig

This is Bavarian King Ludwig\'s II largest castle.

The king decided to make a replica of Versailles,

but only managed to build the central portion before funds ran out.

What exists is very impressive, with French gardens,

a big hall of mirrors,

and a state room

where classical concerts

are held.

This palace is located on

an island named

"Herreninsel"

in the lovely lake Chiemsee.
