I started this post last night but I was not able to finish it because I was very sleepy already. It was again another long day I had yesterday considering the offline tasks that I need to finish.

So I am finishing this post as soon as I can,  before I watch television tonight. Linderhof Palace, called in Germany as Schloss Linderhof is a palace located near Ettal  Abbey in Bavaria, Germany. I have been to the area where this is located but it was my first time to visit it last summer  2011.  Together with my friends, we had a picnic in a lake near this area.

Linderhof is one of the three beautiful palaces  built by King Ludwig II, King of Bavaria.  Before we went there, I decided not to visit inside. When I saw some images on the fyers, how beautiful this palace is, I changed my mind and had a tour inside Linderhof.  I was saddened  because taking photos are not allowed inside. I was just amazed  of what I saw inside. The Hall of Mirrors, the Audience Chamber, the Bedroom, Dining Room and the Eastern and  Western  Tapestry Chambers can be experienced inside this palace.

Development of the Building:
Ludwig already knew the area around Linderhof from his youth when he had accompanied his father King Maximilian II of Bavaria on his hunting trips in the Bavarian Alps. When Ludwig II became king in 1864 he inherited the so-called Königshäuschen from his father, and in 1869 began enlarging the building. In 1874 he decided to tear down the Königshäuschen and rebuild it on its present-day location in the park. At the same time three new rooms and the staircase were added to the remaining U-shaped complex, and the previous wooden exterior was clad with stone façades. The building was designed in the style of the second rococo-period. Between 1863 and 1886 a total of 8,460,937 marks  was spent constructing Linderhof. wikipedia.

The location of the palace  is such a great place to relax and unwind. Isn’t this a paradise? I love it here! I am happy that I once visited it in my life last September  2011. How I wish  that  I am allowed to take pictures inside.
