We had one more of King Ludwig II's castles to see today - Schloss Herrenchiemsee. This palace is another unfinished palace because King Ludwig pretty much put Bavaria in the poor house trying to build his palaces. Herrenchiemsee was to be the biggest of the palaces being a direct replica of Versailles, but that was not to be for poor Ludwig. Only the middle section of the palace was completed along with quite a few fountains.
The wrong end of the Hall of Mirrors. The other way was spectacular 100 meters long full of candleabras and mirrors.

The weather was perfect for an afternoon swim and the clouds parted just enough late this evening for us to see that we have two previously unseen mountains outside our window. They made a brief appearance.
I think we are going into Salzburg tomorrow, rain or shine. We are going to do our own Sound of Music tour!
