Rosenheim Maria's Stein Underground Mine

King Ludwg Grossglockner Hungary & The Suba Lyuk Cave

 

   
A visit to one of King Ludwig's castles by way of Lake Chimsee - Herrenchiemsee.
(www.hdbg.de)
   
Once we arrived, we took horse carriage to the castle. It was very fortunate as our driver spoke English. He had done an internship in Chicago for Snap On tools. I asked him what his favorite memory of America was. Without hesitation, he said New York City. He found out America was just not Burgers and Coca Cola.

   
King Ludgwig became king of Bavaria at 18 upon his father's passing.

King Ludwig also built other castles, one of which is Neuschwanstein, (Cinderella's Castle).
   
This castle was patterned after "Versailles" in Paris in honor of the Bourbon Kings Louis XIV and Louis XV and Louis the XVI, (his grandfather's Godfather) and in honor of his own origins, as a member of the House of Wittelsbach.
   
Amazing are the smallest details in ceilings, walls and woodwork; the chandaleers were beyond belief. One of a kind porcelians, whereas King Ludwig had the molds destroyed afterward.
   
King Ludwing loved modern inventions and used them as much as possible in his creations. Though photographs were forbidden inside, I got many shots of the outside.
