Hohenschwangau Castle - In 1832 the later King Max II. of Bavaria, father of the famous King Ludwig II., acquired the dilapidated castle Schwanstein and let it rebuilt in a neogothic style.

Since this time Hohenschwangau castle was one of the summer and hunting residences of the royal family of Bavaria. The private apartments and a few personal objects are still preserved until today.

Museum of the Bavarian Kings
Since September 2012 the museum presents on an exhibition area of 1.000 square meters the development of the Wittelsbach dynasty, who shaped notably the European history. The focus of the exhibition is on the age of the Bavarian Kings from 1806 to 1918. An audioguide in eight different languages is included in the entrance fee, and you can take all your time to discover the exhibition.
One of the highlight: Admire the original coat of King Ludwig II
