The Schachenhaus
of King Ludwig II.

With its striking architecture, the Schachenhouse is one of the most impressive places you can find anywhere in the Alps. Built in 1868-1872 and located 1800m above sea level in the Wetterstein Mountains, the Schachen also offers breathing taking views of the Bavarian Alps. The cosmopolitan interior design reflects how the King created his favourite retreat by imagination and appropriation of a distant oriental and Indian culture in the midst of a spectactular alpine scenery.  The Schachenhaus can be reached from Schloss Elmau in one hour with an E-Mountainbike or after an easy 3 1/2 hours hike. You can even stay over night at the Schachenhaus or continue to the Meilerhütte in another hour from where you can climb up to the Dreitorspitze 2900m above sea level.
