Story

Neuschwanstein castle nestled high in the alpine foothills of Germany was commissioned by the late King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Known as the castle of the fairy-tale king, Ludwig II dedicated this extraordinary castle to composer Richard Wagner with whom he was a lifelong friend. Theatre designers and artisans worked in close collaboration with architects to bring Ludwig’s spectacular vision to life. The design is inspired by the painted knights, kings and romantic scenes that adorn the walls of the castle. Medieval legends reawaken in this fairy tale scene set in the grounds of Neuschwanstein at moonlight. A knight rides steadily through a fragrant forest of spruce, fir, and pine trees. The floral motifs are inspired by the decorative style of traditional Bavarian embroidery. The swan gatekeepers are a homage to King Ludwig II who was sometimes called the Swan king.
