One of the most famous buildings in the world: the dream castle of the Bavarian Fairy Tale King “Ludwig II”. “Neuschwanstein” Castle was built in 1869 in the style of a huge medieval castle high above the rushing “Pöllat Schlucht”. The castle itself was dedicated to Ludwig the composer Richard Wagner. That’s why you can admire paintings and illustrations from Wagner’s operas in almost every room. With the construction of the castles Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein, tourism began in our region and to this day the two residences have remained the main tourist attractions in the “Königswinkel”.
