The fantastical fortresses of Ludwig, the ‘Fairy Tale King’

Of all the attractions to combine with the once-a-decade spectacle of the Oberammergau Passion Play, few could be more enchanting and memorable than the 19th century ‘Dream Castles’ of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. These fortresses, palaces and country houses, all set in landscapes of Alpine splendour, were like none that came before – so romantic and beautiful that they appear taken from the pages of a fairy-tale. Ludwig’s story had no happy ending, but his fantastical architectural visions live on, bewitching visitors to the present day. Discover the reality behind the dreams in expert company on this outstanding itinerary.
