Hohenschwangau castle is just opposite of the much more popolar Neuschwanstein castle. It is there, where young King Ludwig II had spent his childhood, so it is an authentic castle and all of its interior really had been in use for several decades, while Neuschwanstein was never used as a residence.
"Mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria spent most of his childhood in the castle Hohenschwangau.
He was very sensitive and when you take the guided tour through the castle you will admire lots of paintings at the inside-walls of the castle :
Old fairytales, persons of German History and Legends...
According to the explanations of the tour-guide King Ludwig started to read all these old legends and learned about the persons, that were painted on the walls....
That way they became his obsession
Combination-ticket for both castles are 15,- €
The tour through Hohenschwangau will always be FIRST ! ( as it is rather close to the ticket-box)
This castle has the same parking-lot as Neuschwanstein.
There are horse-carriages taking you from the parking to Hohenschwangau or you take an easy walk of maybe 10-15 minutes
Directions: Hohenschwangau is opposite of Neuschwanstein castle, 4 km east of Fuessen,in the south of Bavaria.
