The King's House on Schachen (German: Königshaus am Schachen) is a small castle (Schlösschen) at Schachen, Wetterstein mountain massif, about 10 km south of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany, built by Ludwig II of Bavaria. The castle was constructed between 1869 and 1872. It can only be reached by a three- to four-hour hike, either from Elmau or Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and provides a view of Zugspitze.
