ONCE UPON A TIME

Bavarian fairytale castles

Let yourself be transported to a fairytale world through the legacy of Bavarian King Ludwig II – known as the fairytale king for the ornate castles, palaces and fortresses he built during his reign. From the magical Neuschwanstein Castle, an homage to Richard Wagner’s Swan Knight (which in turn inspired the kingdom in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty) to Herrenchiemsee Palace, designed as a miniature Versailles, a visit to any one of these triumphs of architecture will leave a long-lasting memory of the region.
