Ludwig II, King of Bavaria, ruled for about two decades from 1864 to 1886. Enigmatic, a lover of medieval and baroque art, a connoisseur of ancient German sagas, Ludwig II had a number of splendid castles built in Bavaria. These are sumptuous and elegant mansions surrounded by parks and gardens. All wrapped up in a fairy-tale atmosphere. The castles of Herrenchiemsee, Neuschwanstein , Hohenschwangau and Linderhof fascinate and intrigue visitors and take a step back in time. A visit to Munich, a vibrant and elegant city with its monuments, numerous museums, and the world’s best beers takes us back to the beating heart of Germany.
