König Ludwig II Votivkapelle Berg (King Ludwig II Memorial Chapel)

König Ludwig II Votivkapelle Berg (King Ludwig II Memorial Chapel) Review

On the lake's eastern shore, at the village of Berg, you'll find the König Ludwig II Votivkapelle Berg. A well-marked path leads through thick woods to the chapel, built near the point in the lake where the drowned king's body was found on June 13, 1886. He had been confined in nearby Berg Castle after the Bavarian government took action against his withdrawal from reality and his bankrupting castle-building fantasies. A cross in the lake marks the point where his body was recovered.
