What reasons can there be for you to discover Neuschwanstein Castle without being repulsed by the fact that it is one of the most visited places in Bavaria?
The 19th century was an exciting time: King Ludwig II developed visionary ideas and turned them into reality using the latest technology. We get to know a time that is still interesting: technical and economic change required a high level of social mobility and changed the world we were living in until then.
Be careful! What do you think you see when you see Neuschwanstein? It all depends on where you come from! Walt Disney once visited the castle and was so enthusiastic about its architecture that he even incorporated its silhouette into his company logo. Let yourself be enlightened and enchanted! "Neuschwanstein Castle stands for Germany!" Is what many people say when asked why they are visiting. Germany disappears as a geographical place behind its most famous castle.
This unique career of Neuschwanstein Castle in the perception of the people stands in stark contrast to the shy personality of the builder, King Ludwig II of Bavaria. This promoted the natural sciences and made use of technical achievements to realize his ideas.
Jobs were created around his castle construction sites and once remote and poor regions of Bavaria experienced an unprecedented economic boom. Here, in the Bavarian countryside, not in the city of Munich, the myth of King Ludwig II, the Kini, arose!
Curious? It is worth discovering Neuschwanstein Castle and its history. All you need is someone to give you the most important information at the right time and orientation on site.
Let's set off on this voyage of discovery together!
