Information and stories to the royal castles
Neuschwanstein Castle - on the 5th of September, 1869 the corner stone was laid for Neuschwanstein Castle near Füssen. Ludwig II hoped for a quick completion. However, the conditions were too difficult. The construction of the gate (1873) was the first to be finished in 1873. The fairy-tale king lived there for several years. In 1880 the first rooms were ready to move in and roofing ceremony took place in 1884. The construction of the gate the fairy tale king lived in for years was the first to be totally finished in 1873. Although the topping-out ceremony took place already in 1880, the first rooms could be occupied in 1884. Neuschwanstein Castle became the shelter of the fairy tale king and his last place of residence. He was taken to Berg Castle on the shores of Lake Starnberg, in which he died in a mysterious manner.
Neuschwanstein Castle is the most famous one of the all the castles of Ludwig II. Yearly about 1.5 million tourists visit Neuschwanstein, which is often called "fairy-tale castle". It is open for public nearly all year.
Linderhof Castle - in 1864 Ludwig II was proclaimed king. First he began with the decorating his rooms of his Munich residence in 1867/68 and started then bulding Neuschwanstein Castle. In 1868 Ludwig II developed the first plans for Linderhof Castle. But neither the planning of a castle similar to Versailles nor the establishment of a big Byzantine palace could be implemented.
In 1869 Ludwig II allowed to alterate the forester's small house (which he already used as prince royal for hunting excursions with his father) for his purposes. It took several stages of construction like the enlargement of the king's small house (with wooden annexes or the moving) to its present-day’s location about 200 metres away, Linderhof Castle was finished around 1876. It is the only bigger castle construction which King Ludwig II experienced perfectly.
Hohenschwangau Castle and Schwangau - The today's modern castle was first mentioned in the 12th century as a castle named “Schwanstein”. The knights of Schwangau were in the possession of the castle till the 16th century. After that the owners changed more often and during the wars back then it became severely damaged. The Bavarian prince royal Maximilian – later called King Maximilian II –became aware of the ruin and had it rebuilt from 1833 to 1837 to a neo-Gothic castle. The rooms are decorated with paintings from the medieval legend world.
Maximilian II used the region around Hohenschwangau Castle mostly as summer residence and for hiking in the mountains. His children Ludwig II as well as Ludwig’s younger brother Otto spent the large part of their childhood in the castle near Füssen. Since 1928 Hohenschwangau Castle belongs to the Wittelsbacher equalisation fund.
Dreams and technology - Ludwig II liked to retreat himself into his own dream world. Under high financial pressure he tried to realize these dreams in building palaces and castles. The building of the royal castles were back then of no avail and a great financial load. Today, however, Neuschwanstein Castle f.e., as well as Linderhof Castle, are important tourist centres of attraction. Already 7 weeks after his death they were opened to the public. In spite of all his romantic dreams Ludwig II excelled in promotion and support of modern technologies. The worldwide first power station with a dynamo was to be found in Linderhof Castle.
Steel construction and electricity were already used in Ludwig's castles, as well as central heating, phones and electric call arrangements for the servants and lifts. Still today one can admire this in the castles Linderhof and Neuschwanstein.
Wieskirche - One of the most famous rococo churches in the world - the Wieskirche. In 1738 a farmer saw tears in the eyes of the suffering Jesus. This miracle was the beginning of a pilgrimage to today's Wieskirche near Steingaden. For that purpose, in 1745, Dominikus Zimmermann created a magnificent church, rococo in its utmost perfection. The Wieskirche invites to amazement and adoration as well as praying and contemplation. But there are also a venue of regular church music events.
Since 1983 the Wieskirche was declared world cultural heritage of UNSECO and restored from 1985 to 1991, which costed more than 10 million Deutschmarks. These days more than one million people visit the church, every year.
Plansee (Austria) - With almost 3 km ² surface Plansee is the second largest natural lake of Tyrol and is located in the district of Reutte (Austria), surrounded by the Ammergauer Alps. The lake is about 6 km long and up to 76 metres deep. The Plansee and also the Heiterwanger Lake are probably remains of a glacial melt water reservoir. It was mentioned for the first time in 1073 as “Planse”, “Please”, “Plense” or “Plase”.
Today the Plansee is known for its excellent water quality and enjoys great popularity –amongst joggers, travellers, cyclists, hikers and other sportsmen. Because of its location in the Lechtaler Alps and the Wetterstein Mountains the Plansee is a perfect start for mountain hikes. Also divers get their thrills. Because of the excellent water quality a visual range up to 15 metres is possible. Since 1927 there is also shipping traffic.
