Notes NOTES: This 'Royal Villa' of King Ludwig II of Bavaria originated as a hunting lodge belonging to his father Maximilian II. Known as the 'Konigshauschen', it was enlarged by Georg Dollmann between 1870 and 1878 with a U-shaped complex centred on the King's Bedchamber. Like its predecessor, the new building was a wooden post-and-infill construction.The facade was clad in stone in 1874. The gardens were landscaped by Carl Joseph von Effner.
