Neuschwanstein Castle, erected on a rugged hill against a backdrop of picturesque mountain scenery, was prompted by the idea of rebuilding an existing ruin “in the authentic style of the old German knights’ castles”, as King Ludwig II wrote in a letter to Richard Wagner. Linderhof Palace, the smallest of the three palaces built by King Ludwig II, set up in French rococo style, is the only one which he lived to see completed. Overnight in Munich.
