Inspired by this, King Ludwig II, 1877, had a building in the Ammerwald imagined as a hermit hut on a forest lighting, the execution of which was based on a stage regulation for the third act of opera. A reconstruction of the partially dilapidated building was completed in 2000 in the parks of Linderhof Castle.
