This is very popular with guests who have already visited Neuschwanstein Castle and would like to spend more time exploring the village of Hohenschwangau and learn more about the history of the Wittelsbach Royal Family through the centuries.
Hohenschwangau Castle, perhaps less famous than Neuschwanstein Castle, is no less impressive. It was King Ludwig II’s childhood home, having been built by his father King Maximilian II of Bavaria in 1837.
Inside you see how a Royal Bavarian Family lived in the 19th Century, with original murals, furniture and artefacts on display.
The Museum of Bavarian Kings was built in 2011 and houses further artefacts of the Wittelsbach Royal Family. The history of the Wittelsbach through the centuries is explored and explained, the main focus being on King Maximilian II and King Ludiwg II, as these Kings brought the Castles to Hohenschwangau. You can spend as much time exploring the Museum as you wish.
