Lesser known than Neuschwanstein, the Neo-Baroque Herrenchiemsee Palace was built on an island in the middle of Bavaria's largest lake, the Chiemsee. It was King Ludwig's largest royal residence, although he only stayed there a few days before his tragic death. The Palace is unfinished; more than 50 rooms were never completed.
