Notes NOTES: Construction on this palace, built in the French Baroque style in imitation of Versailles for King Ludwig II of Bavaria, began in 1878 to designs by Georg Dollmann. It was never completed since building work was halted in 1886 for financial reasons. The Latona Fountain, a replica of the Bassin de Latone at the Gardens of Versailles, was executed by Philipp Perron.
