Ludwig II - in short - a dreamy king figure, strongly influenced by medieval sagas, Arthurian legends and Wagner’s opus, created a 5.000m2 recluse where he could live in his own reality.

He built the Neuschwanstein Castle - a romanesque revival architectural masterpiece. It’s walls, from the lower halls to the ceilings of the upmost floor are decorated with murals telling all those stories that helped him escape the mundane reality he detested.
