The Museum of the Bavarian Kings in Hohenschwangau in southern Bavaria traces the history of the Wittelsbach dynasty from its very beginnings through to the present day.
Housed inside the 'Alpenrose', a former grand hotel, the museum offers a perfect balance of landscape and architecture. The exhibition centres on King Maximilian II and King Ludwig II – the monarch responsible for Neuschwanstein Castle. Guided tours are available in several languages and in varying levels of detail to meet the needs of visitors from all over the world.
