The following link of Schloss Linderhof will provide all the info on this fairy tale palace which is a definite must see when coming to the Allgäu.
Ludwig the Dreamer, as he also appeared to be known, among other built Europe's largest human built cave at the Linderhof Castle, and spent quite a bit of time in this cave, listening to Wagner's music. The cave also included a large underground waterfall, and an underground lake, which could be heated to 30°C, a temperature very well suited for swimming. The cave, which included stalagtites and stalagmites, also had a number of mural paintings, and a colored light show. This light show was state of the art in the mid 19th century with Siemens providing the electrical technology.
