In 1868 Ludwig II drew up the first building projects for Linderhof. Linderhof Palace is the only one of King Ludwig II"s larger building projects which saw to completion in his life time. It is the smallest of Ludwig"s three palaces and the only one which was completed.
Linderhof is also considered as the favourite of the king"s castles where he stayed far more frequently than any of the others. In the beautiful palace park there is not only the castle, but also the grotto of Venus, the Moorish kiosk, the Moroccan house and the so-called king"s cottage.
In the year 1832 Crown Prince Maximilian, later King Max II, bought the ruin and had it restyled by the theatre painter Dominik Quaglio in the English Tudor style as can be seen on a visit to Hohenschwangau today. The romantic castle served the royal family as summer residence and was the happy childhood home of Ludwig II. Its Biedermeier interior remains unchanged. In particular the interior of the castle is a real secret treasure alongside "Neuschwanstein".
The Gothic High Castle of the bishops of Augsburg lies on a hill over the old town of Füssen. With its pictorial inner court and unique illusion painting on the facade, it counts as one of the best preserved medieval castles in Bavaria. The High Castle accommodates the local gallery of the Bavarian State Art Collections and the town"s picture gallery.
