The pomp and circumstance of Bavaria

Castles and Monasteries

You could almost believe that fairy-take Kind Ludwig II of Bavaria knew exactly what he was doing when he had the most fantastic castles built in his homeland. Today, they are the tourist magnets of the state. Rightly so, since the beauty of these world-famous cultural monuments fascinate each and every visitor.


State Monasteries

The old state monasteries, especially the famous Ettal Abbey, attract visitors not only thanks to their impressive architecture and unique decorations; but also thanks to the array of exhibitions held on their premises and the lovely farm and ornamental gardens which are still maintained within the abbey walls today.

Neuschwanstein and Linderhof Castles

Neuschwanstein is probably the most well-known of Ludwig’s castles. Built in a picturesque location on a free-standing cliff at the foot of the Alps, it is now a paragon of a castle structure. Linderhof Castle is less well-known – but no less beautiful. Linderhof had a very special place in the King’s heart, since it was here that he spent the majority of his youth. The castle grounds are amongst the most lovely in the whole of Germany.


Herrenchiemsee and Nymphenburg Castles

Herrenchiemsee Castle was built on the Herreninsel in Chiemsee, yet it was never completed following the death of King Ludwig. Despite this, with its splendour and lakeside location, it is one of the most romantic spots in Bavaria. The filigree rococo decoration of the state is visible in Nymphenburg Castle. Its love of detail, craftsmanship and great elaborateness are unique.
