    Since the summer months of 1886, events had rippled. Bavaria had fallen into a state of complete paralysis. The rumors that the king was murdered on the shores of Lake Starnberg near Berg did not stop there. There was still no memorial to the departed monarch, who was worshiped and loved by the Bavarian people. Only in 1887, a year after his death, did the mother of Louis, Queen Marie, erect a lamp for the dead above the place where he breathed his life. Lonely, her light shone out on Lake Starnberg, so beloved by Ludwig. But was this a worthy monument to a fairy tale king?

    To commemorate the death of King Ludwig II was from 1896 to 1900, the construction of the votive chapel above the point where the regent was recovered dead. A wooden cross marks the place in the lake.
    Every year on the Sunday after the 13th of June, the day of the death, a commemoration ceremony takes place at the votive chapel.
    From the mountain, the Memorial Chapel of St. Louis can be easily reached in about 15 minutes. The beautiful view of Lake Starnberg invites you to linger.
