Feldafing Park and Rose Island

in 82319 Starnberg, Bavaria (DE)

In 1853 King Maximilian II of Bavaria commissioned Peter Joseph Lenné to design a landscape park on the west shore of Lake Starnberg. The park, which combines decorative formal and natural landscape elements, was laid out by Carl von Effner.

The palace commenced much later in 1863 was abandoned on the early death of the king in March 1864. Rose Island with its small island villa, the "Casino", and a rose garden also designed by Lenné, was one of the favourite places of Maximilian’s son Ludwig II; among the special guests he received here were Tsarina Maria Alexandrovna, Richard Wagner and Empress Elisabeth of Austria.
