Herrenchiemsee palace was meant as a tribute to King Ludwig II's role model Louis the Fourteenth. It's the most expensive of the three palaces built by Ludwig the second. Today just a fragment remains, but it's very popular with tourists.
The leader of two ensembles and founder of the Herrenchiemsee Festival was a respected figure in German music life. His passing came unexpectedly.
The King Ludwig II Museum in Herrenchiemsee, Bavaria, be open to the public again at the end of April after extensive construction work. A special exhibition will show never seen designs for Neuschwanstein Castle.
Bavaria's ancient traditions are often used to illustrate German culture. Yet the Free State of Bavaria was only founded 100 years ago. To celebrate the milestone, a new exhibition explores its unique heritage.
