The King's House on Schachen
The King's House on Schachen (Königshaus am Schachen) is a small castle at Schachen Witterstein, about 10 km south of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, built by Ludwig II of Bavaria. The castle was constructed between 1869 and 1872 and was used as a hunting lodge and retreat for the king. It can only be reached by a three to four hour hike, either from Elmau or Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and provides a view of the Zugspitze.
One room (known as the
Turkish Room) occupies the entire upper-floor of the castle, and is elaborately decorated in an Oriental fashion. The extravagant interior stands in stark contrast to the exterior, which is rather modest.
The castle is open from June to October, and daily tours are offered at 11am, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm. Admission is 4 € Adults, 3 &euros; concessions.
