"Königshaus am Schachen" Alpine Garden - Schachen Mountain Tip by iaint
Alpine Garden - Schachen Mountain, Garmisch-Partenkirchen: 3 reviews and 14 photos
This is a ?palace? built on a 6,000 ft mountain by King Ludwig II of Bavaria between 1869 and 1872. Ludwig was the builder of ?must see? Neuschwanstein and of a number of other castle-palaces.
Apart from its eccentric location, the other main feature is its lavish & ornate oriental style reception room. With a chandelier weighing 2 tons, one does wonder about the construction of it...
It is reached only after a 3.5 hour walk from Elmau, or a longer hike from G-P. Check the website for current details. At the time of our visit, it was open May - October. A guided tour (?4.50) was compulsory, and groups limited to 30.
Well worth the effort to get there
