Fairytale castles

 

On the traces of King Ludwig II: Linderhof Castle

The building activities of Ludwig II, who was crowned king in 1864, began in 1867/68 with the design of his apartments in the Munich Residence and the laying of the foundation stone of Neuschwanstein Castle.

The building activities of Ludwig II, who was crowned king in 1864, began in 1867/68 with the design of his apartments in the Munich Residence and the laying of the foundation stone of Neuschwanstein Castle.

Already in 1868 Ludwig II. developed the first building projects for Linderhof Palace. However, neither the planned project of a palace in the valley floor, modelled on Versailles, nor the plans to build a large Byzantine palace were carried out. Instead, the core of the building activities was the former forester’s cottage of his father Maximilian II, which was located on the present-day castle forecourt and which the king already used as crown prince on hunting trips with his father. After a long construction period, the resulting Linderhof Palace is the only larger palace building that King Ludwig II. saw completed.

The Linderhof Palace and Garden Administration will again offer informative park tours and exciting guided tours for children in 2011.

Participation in the park tours costs 3.50 euros per person (including a visit to the palace 8.50 respective feeeuros). For the guided tours for children, an amount of 2,- Euro per child (material costs) is usually charged.

Adult accompanying persons pay only the entrance fee for the respective object, children and young people up to 18 years have free entrance.

Admission fees
Castle with park buildings:
8,50 Euro regular, 7,50 Euro reduced

In winter only the castle can be visited:

Restoration of the Venus Grotto in the castle park
The Weilheim State Building Authority and the Bavarian Palace Department are currently working on the restoration of the Venus Cave, which has become necessary over time.
Unfortunately, this means that the visual aspect of the cave is currently blocked by the construction of fences on the outside and scaffolding on the inside.

On the traces of King Ludwig II: Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle is located in the immediate vicinity of Hohenschwangau and is built “in the true style of the old German knight’s castles”.

Records of visitors and conservation problems
Seven weeks after the death of King Ludwig II, Neuschwanstein was opened to the public in 1886. The shy king had built the castle to get away from the crowd – but now his refuge is quite famous.

Today Neuschwanstein is one of the most visited castles and palaces in Europe. 1.3 million people visit “the castle of the fairy tale king” every year. In summer, an average of more than 6000 visitors per day visit the rooms, which were intended for a single inhabitant.

The idyllic location of Neuschwanstein Castle is unique. However, movements in the foundation area have to be constantly monitored and the steep rock faces have to be secured again and again. The climate also attacks the limestone facades, which therefore have to be renovated in sections over the next few years.
Since 1990, the State of Bavaria has spent some 11.2 million euros on the restoration and maintenance of the castle and on improving visitor services.

Opening hours
April – September: 9.00 – 18.00 hrs

The visit is only possible as part of a guided tour. All guided tours last 30 min.

Smoking, photographing and filming is strictly prohibited in the castle. Please leave baby carriages and bulky items (rucksacks, etc.) at the checkroom. Dogs are not allowed in the castle.

On the traces of King Ludwig II: Hunting castle Schachen

Built between 1869 and 1872 on Schachenalp near Garmisch-Partenkirchen according to plans by Georg Dollmann, the royal house served King Ludwig II as a refuge during his stays in the mountains.

The wooden post and beam construction in the type of a so-called “Swiss House” has five living rooms on the first floor with Swiss stone pine panelling and historicizing elements. The entire upper floor, on the other hand, is occupied by the “Turkish Hall”, which with its stained glass windows, opulently embroidered textiles, peacock feathers and candelabras reflects the enthusiasm of the king and his time for the Orient.

The hunting lodge can only be reached on foot (in about 3 hours).

City Tours

Mittenwald

A very picturesque Spa town, known for its violin making and the typical Bavarian Lüftlmalereien on the houses, situated below the Karwendel.

More…

Worth seeing is the violin making museum with its extensive collection of instruments and the violin workshop.

Visit the approx. 3000m long Leutascher Geisterklamm between Mittenwald and Leutasch.

Did you know that the Mittenwald market is located on one of the oldest Roman and trade routes? The place was first mentioned in documents around 1096-1098. Until 1803 it belonged to the episcopal-freising county of Werdenfels. In 1361 Mittenwald was elevated to a market by Karl IV. and since 1407 it has a coat of arms with a seal (Mohrenkopf and three firs with mountains).

Mittenwald has preserved its historical appearance up to our time. Impressive is its original townscape with the old, Upper Bavarian houses in the middle of a generous landscape scenery.
In recent years many houses, churches and chapels have been masterfully decorated with frescoes by the local artist family Pfeffer. Son Stephan Pfeffer, born on 24.02.1962 Lüftlmaler, master wood sculptor and stuccoer, skilfully continues this tradition. A large number of his works can also be seen in Mittenwald itself.

Michael Ende Year 2009
The highlight of the Michael Ende Year was the festival premiere of “The Neverending Story” as part of the KULTURSOMMER. The premiere was on August 22, 2009 in the circus tent of the Kurpark Garmisch. On this day, the park will be ceremonially renamed “Michael-Ende-Kurpark”. Here, in 1990, he planted an imperial linden tree, around which a lawn labyrinth was laid out. The turtle “Cassiopeia” from “Momo” and “Fuchur” the legendary dragon from the “Infinite History” can even be found as a flower bed.

More…

In the 18th century, the so-called Lüftlmalerei flourished because, according to legend, painters always worked outdoors or in the air.

Small introduction to the world of the Passionsspiele:

The next Passionsspiele will take place in 2020.

The history of the Oberammergau Passionsspiele is inseparably connected with the time of the Thirty Years’ War. At that time the plague was rampant. And when the plague also affected many inhabitants of Oberammergau, some citizens vowed in 1633 to perform the Passionsspiele every ten years, if the suffering would come to a quick end. According to tradition, the plague did not claim any new victims from that time on. In 1634 the people of Oberammergau began to fulfill their promise. Since then they have been performing “their plays” every ten years.

Tickets:
The advance sale should take place around April 2019.

These tickets should be available to our guests, who can reach Oberammergau easily in a day trip.

The Parkhotel Wallgau will be happy to provide you with overnight accommodation for the Passionsspiele.

Dreamlike hiking trails in the alpine surroundings of Karwendel

Bergwelt Karwendel – Environmental exhibition

Enjoy an incomparable view more than 1.300m above the roofs of Mittenwald! Look at the landscape from a new perspective and discover an extraordinary world of life artists at 2.244m altitude! The exhibition offers visitors an insight into the alpine ecosystem and the habitat “Karwendel”.

More…

In a safe environment, it makes the special living conditions of plants, animals and people in the Alpine region understandable even to less mountain-experienced visitors. This is conveyed through the character of the ptarmigan and the role of humans in the Karwendel Alpine ecosystem. Therefore, space is also devoted to the topics “dangers in the mountains” and “cultural and historical developments”. “Father” of this exhibition project at this spectacular location with its avant-garde architecture is Dr. Lutz Spandau, Chairman of the Allianz Environmental Foundation.
