  • You can find the Museum of the Bavarian Kings below the two Royal Castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. It is not crowded in the Gegansatz the two. Many interesting personalities which have brought the family of Wittelsbach, from 1806 King of Bavaria. King Ludwig II. is best known of course In the Museum you can find all sorts of Kings, Queens, Princes and princesses. With the Augioguide you can listen to a lot, but there's too much on information panels to read. You can see even a small movie about unrealized buildings of Ludwig II.. The exhibits are including paintings, busts, table centrepieces, and private things like the walking stick by Queen Marie. It is also positive that the exhibition ends with the end of the monarchy, but in the still spans. I've spent hours here and am really excited. An excellent museum.

  • A rainy day can be very well rounded off with a visit to the Museum next to the two royal castles. The Museum offers a free audio guide with interesting information around on the life and work of the Bavarian Kings. The rooms are modern in design with many screens, which continue in the history can be penetrated. I was interested in the detailed information about the life and work of the House of Wittelsbach personally until today. In videos and on countless screens the individual family members come to Word. You should allow approximately 1.5 hours for a visit. A very stylish restaurant / Café is present (unfortunately somewhat expensive) in addition to the obligatory gift shop.
