    Home of Duke Maximilian Joseph in Bavaria (Max) and his family, including, of course, the most famous resident of the place, the later Empress Elisabeth, who spent her childhood and youth here. The castle is unfortunately not open to the public - it was acquired by an investor in the 1980s, renovated and, excitingly, converted into condominiums (!). After all, the bank area in front of the castle, which also belongs to the castle grounds, is open to the public and you can enjoy wonderful views of the lake and the castle grounds here.

    After several other owners, most recently Count Basselet von la Rosée, the castle and the two court brands finally came into the possession of Duke Maximilian Joseph in Bavaria in 1834. His daughter Elisabeth, who later became Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Queen of Hungary (Sisi), spent her childhood here.

    Sisi must have spent a summer or something here. Very nice to look at from the lake.

    Beautiful path on the western shore of Lake Starnberg. Unfortunately overcrowded at the weekend or during the holidays.

    Great to walk by but it’s inconvenient to try and picnic with ‘a view of the castle’ ( pedestrian and bike traffic )

    Beautiful mood in the late afternoon just before the storm "Fabienne".
    We sat until 20 o'clock at one of the footbridges and enjoyed the atmosphere at a pleasant 21 degrees.
