The crowning of the Eastern Parterre is a wooden pavilion containing the stone bust of King Louis XVI of France.
This garden area, on three levels, consists of ornamental flowerbeds with allegories of the four elements on the long sides.
The French influence is noticeable in the stone sculpture "Venus and Adonis" and the fountain with the gilt figure of "Amor shooting an arrow".

Schloss Linderhof (Linderhof Palace) is a "Königliche Villa" (Royal Villa) in southwest Bavaria near Ettal Abbey, Germany.
It is the smallest of the three palaces built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria and the only one which he lived to see completed.
