Very small for a palace but very beautiful. Built in Baroque style with lots of precious decorations. 24k Gold painted ceiling, ivory chandelier, secret doors, and the giant morror which gives the illusion of an endless hall as the Versailles palace in France. Oh, and...More

My husband, 18month old and I visited this small and luxurious castle. Easy to find 2.50Euro parking and 8.50Euro per adult to view the inside of castle via the tour. If you just want to walk/run/stroller through the pathways of the acres of land, this...More

No words can describe the outrageous splendour of the state rooms. They definitely have to be seen to be belived. The gardens and fountains surrounding the palace would not be out of place in some of the more extravagant musicals from the heyday of Hollywood....More

Being King Ludwig II fans and loving conspiracy theories about his strange death (suicide? murder?), this was an absolute "must" visit for myself and wife. This King spent ENORMOUS amounts on his castles (and Linderhof, which was his favorite) and it definitely shows. Our tour...More

We visited on a busy day and although the palace and the grounds are quite pretty and photogenic, the numbers of people meant that the place felt a bit too crowded. Also as seems to be common at castles/palaces etc. no photos or video inside...More

We were super amazed by the spectacular interior of the palace!!! Inside the palace is extremely beautiful. :) This palace is a must go and in my opinion, it is way more worth it than the famous Schloss Neuschwanstein, haha. After we visited this palace,...More

If I remember well there is a kiosk outside where you can buy a coffee or a light snack. Just walking distance. We took a picnic with us and it was acceptable so I did not really bother to check about food on offer.
