Linderhof Palace (German: Schloss Linderhof) is a Schloss in Germany, in southwest Bavaria near Ettal Abbey. It is the smallest of the three palaces built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria and the only one which he lived to see completed. Ludwig already knew the area around Linderhof from his youth when he had accompanied his father King Maximilian II of Bavaria on his hunting trips in the Bavarian Alps. When Ludwig II became king in 1864 he inherited the so-called Königshäuschen from his father, and in 1869 began enlarging the building. In 1874 he decided to tear down the Königshäuschen and rebuild it on its present-day location in the park. At the same time three new rooms and the staircase were added to the remaining U-shaped complex, and the previous wooden exterior was clad with stone façades. The building was designed in the style of the second rococo-period. Between 1863 and 1886 a total of 8,460,937 marks was spent constructing Linderhof. The gardens surrounding Linderhof Palace are considered one of the most beautiful creations of historicist garden design, designed by Court Garden Director Carl von Effner. The park combines formal elements of Baroque style or Italian Renaissance gardens with landscaped sections that are similar to the English garden. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Skyride to Paradise Point, St Thomas, US Virgin Islands" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I63NPWAS72g -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
The Reconstruction of The Berlin City Palace. The Berliner Stadtschloss was a Royal and imperial palace in the centre of Berlin. It was the winter residence of the Kings of Prussia and the German Emperors. In 2013 work commenced on reconstruction of the palace. The completion is expected in 2019. The palace was originally built in the 15th century. It was the principal residence and winter residence of the Hohenzollern Kings of Prussia from 1701 to 1918. After the unification of Germany in 1871, it was also the central residence for the German Emperors. It became a museum following the fall of the German Empire in 1918. The palace was heavily damaged by air raids in World War II. Although it could have been repaired, the palace was demolished in 1950 by the Communists, the GDR authorities.
