Thank goodness for King Ludwig. This castle was built to serve as his "Little Versailles" and is modeled much after the French. Unfortunately he ran out of money mid-construction. Only 20 of the 70 rooms were ever completed. What was not finished today is a construction site. The structure is HUGE. When it was initially planned, it was supposed to be 3 times as large. However, the side construction had to be torn down for financial reasons. In total Ludwig lived in this castle for 10 days. Inside are some incredible rooms. In addition the grounds are beautiful. We passed deer when making our way to the island. There are 30 statues on the ground. There are carriage rides to and from the ferry if the 20 minute hike is a challenge. Well worth the visit!
