Great Hall of Mirrors

For the gallery at Herrenchiemsee, the king demanded a scale model of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. The gallery was created in 1879-1881 to plans by Georg Dollmann, under whose direction it was also completed. At 98 metres in length, the hall is longer than the original at Versailles. Together with its corner rooms, the Hall of Peace and Hall of War, it spans the palace's entire garden front. The 33 glass chandeliers of the Herrenchiemsee Mirror Gallery did not exist in the Versailles model; they enhanced the splendour of Ludwig II's nightly stays.
