Crazed King

July 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

After a morning of riding through the German countryside, we spent the afternoon visiting crazy King Ludwig's Linderhof Palace, one of his favorite residences. Ludwig II almost bankrupted Germany with all of his crazy castle building in the 1800's. Who knew that he would eventually inspire Walt Disney (with Neuschwanstein Castle) and that these outrageous castles and palaces would eventually become some of the biggest tourist attractions in Germany. This is one of the funny little details in the many statues around the palace. (more pics at markaltenberg.com/linderhof.)
