Starnberg Travel Tip:
Berg Castle (Schloss Berg)

Berg Castle (Schloss Berg)
Reproduction of a print of Schloss Berg by Anton Zwengauer

Schloss Berg has been owned by the ruling house of Wittelsbach since 1669. Its fame stems from the fact that it was the final residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. All the Gothic details added to the castle by King Ludwig in the mid-19th century have been removed, the Schloss returned to its appearance as it would have looked in the 17th and 18th centuries. The castle is still privately owned and not open to the public, and a gatehouse blocks a view of its facade. From the lake, summer foliage blocks the view, though it can be seen from the lake in winter. Although you can't go inside, you can wander through the former grounds of the castle, which have been turned into a public park. It is located in Berg on the eastern shores of Lake Starnberg.

to this request I can give you no more precise information because I do not know what is meant by "Mountain Castle". Possibly Hotel in Berg? The easiest way to get shut to answer this question is to call Google Maps typing "Germany, Bavaria, Mountain, King Ludwig Memorial". In the satellite view the environment is watching closely from the map display, the distances can be estimated. General information about our display in LLAG: So far it is hard to recognize a flown to, as well as the statistics show. That may be because the location references our indicator does not take into account sufficiently. For example, is used in the search entry "Upper Bavaria" in the Portal no indication of our apartment! Same Miss-success in finding in the "Munich Region"! Only in the direct search for "Tutzing" our message is displayed. But who knows in the world Tutzing ?? I think this would be a fundamental review of the search mechanism necessary. You might also be some evidence to Verbesseung of success (your general text on statistics does not help me there). Sincerely J. Walther
