''In 1873 King Ludwig II of Bavaria acquired the Herreninsel as the location for his Royal Palace of Herrenchiemsee (New Palace). Modelled on Versailles, this palace was built as a "Temple of Fame" for King Louis XIV of France, whom the Bavarian monarch fervently admired.
The actual building of this "Bavarian Versailles", which was begun in 1878 from plans by Georg Dollmann, was preceded by a total of 13 planning stages. When Ludwig II died in 1886 the palace was still incomplete, and sections of it were later demolished.
The highlights of the large state rooms are the State Staircase, the State Bedroom and the Great Hall of Mirrors. The king's own rooms were in the intimate Small Apartment, designed in the French rococo style.
In 1876 Court Garden Director Carl von Effner completed the plans for a large garden resembling that of Versailles. When the king died, only the sections along the main axis with their famous fountains and waterworks had been completed. ''

J'aime beaucoup la perspective sur ce très beau château. J'aime l'effet entonnoir, le jeu des ombres et de la lumière ainsi que la belle netteté de l'ensemble.

composizione impeccabile, luce molto buona per evidenziare i volumi dell'architettura ed un cielo che meglio non poteva essere.
Interessante anche la proposta che ignoravo del tutto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

mancava giusto la copia di Versailles in questa tua gita bavarese, probabilmente non ha lo stesso fascino del palazzo francese, ma la sua ambientazione è originale e unica, solo il viaggio per andare e tornare ne vale la pena.
Bella la prospettiva e la specularità della tua foto, l'ombra e il cielo sono dei perfetti diversivi.

I am so pleased to learn of this place through your capture and notes, I admire Versailles very much too, and this is such a wonderful architectural tribute to it. The symmetrical composition suits this so perfectly, and the shadow and light are handled to perfection. To top it off, a fine vivid blue sky, and no people! Really cool shot, thanks for sharing.
All the best

I have a huge sentiment for this place as it was one of the first trip which I had with my wife. Later I have realized how similar this place is to Versaille indeed. I know many palaces are build similar to Versaille but it REALLY is quite similar even some statues in the garden are identical. It is just a bit smaller. Sadly both my photos from Herrenchiemsee and Versaille are pretty bad so I am very glad to see your presentation from this interesting place. Great weather, pleasant light and so empty -I really like it,

E chiaro che mi fa pensare nel castello di Versailles. Eccellente simmetria con une bella gestione della luce. Mi piace l'inquadratura, con la facciata che porta fino agli angoli.
