Schloss Linderhof - Blick vom Schloss auf den Venustempel

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Linderhof Palace, located in southwest Bavaria near Ettal Abbey, is the smallest of the three palaces built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Although Linderhof is much smaller than Versailles, it is evident that the palace of the French Sun-King Louis XIV (who was an idol for Ludwig) was its inspiration. The landscape garden covers an area of about 50 hectares (125 acres) and is perfectly integrated in the surrounding natural alpine landscape.

The water parterre in front of the palace is dominated by a large basin with the gilt fountain group Flora and putti. The terrace gardens form the southern part of the park and correspond to the cascade in the north. The gardens are crowned by a round temple with a statue of Venus formed after a painting by Antoine Watteau (Pèlerinage à l’île de Cythère).
