It was love at first sight when the Prussian King Frederick William met Elisabeth of Bavaria. As his wife she followed him to his castle in Berlin. But she missed her Bavarian homeland very much. Apart from often traveling back to Bavaria, Elisabeth made excursions to Potsdam’s Wildpark, the game park which reminded her of home. Eventually Frederick William asked his court architect Ludwig Ferdinand Hesse to build a house entirely in the style of a Bavarian log cabin there. The splendid view from its position on top of a hill was breath-taking. It reached from the forests of the Wildpark to the nearby Prussian castles. As a special attraction, chamois from Bavaria were placed in a reserve close by. In their later years it became a daily routine to Frederick William and Elisabeth to go to the Bayrisches Haus.
The simplicity of the outer shell of this Bavarian cottage gave a fascinating contrast to its exquisite inner design, a touch of royal noblesse. Please find the whole story here.
