Herrenchiemsee New Palace and Park

in 83209 Herrenchiemsee, Bavaria (DE)

Herrenchiemsee New Palace For King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the French "Sun King" Louis XIV was the embodiment of absolute monarchy. In the New Palace of Herrenchiemsee, designed by Georg Dollmann and Julius Hofmann, he fulfilled his long-cherished dream of building a "New Versailles" as a symbol of absolutism and an independent creation in the Historicist style.

The main highlights of the over twenty state rooms are the Ambassador’s Staircase, the Great Hall of Mirrors and the State Bedchamber.
The palace park designed by Carl von Effner also features motifs from Versailles.
