Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds. It was opened to the public in 1886, seven weeks after the death of King Ludwig II. Around 1.3 million people from all parts of the world visit the fabled castle of the “Mad” King every year. The idyllic location of Neuschwanstein is unique with the castle being built onto the Upper Bavarian mountains rendering breathtaking views from the Marie's Bridge. The bridge was named by Ludwig II of Bavaria after his mother, Marie of Prussia.
The royal palace Linderhof of Ludwig II is located in the Graswangtal near Oberammergau. In the years 1874 to 1878 the king had it built by Georg Dollmann on the site of a hunting lodge belonging to his father, Maximilian II. Linderhof is the smallest of the three royal castles and was the favorite castle of the king, which he also inhabited. The fascinating park belonging to the castle features a 22-meter-high fountain and a terrace complex boasting a Venus temple, giving the spectator ample time for admiration and a sense of serenity. A Moorish kiosk, the Moroccan house, the Hunding hut and an artificial grotto are also part of the extensive area around Schloss Linderhof.
Oberammergau is a municipality in the Upper Bavarian district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It is located in the Ammer Valley on the river Ammer. Oberammergau is known above all for its ten-yearly Passion Play (most recently in 2010) and for its facades decorated with Lüftlmalerei. Worth seeing examples of this Baroque painting are, among others, the facades of the forester's lodge, the Mossldomahaus, and the Pilatushaus. The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will take place from 16 May to 4 October 2020. The Passion Play dates back to a vow made in 1633 and is considered one of the most important religious and cultural events in Germany. For the next Passion Play 102 performances are planned. The Passionstheater in Oberammergau has around 4,500 seats, making it the largest open-air stage with a covered auditorium worldwide. In 2020, Oberammergau expects around half a million visitors from all over the world.
