Kind Ludwig had this castle built and only stayed about 6 months total here before he died ( in the nearby lake with his psychiatrist. still remains a mystery because he drowned but was known to be an excellent swimmer( ludwig) and no one can explain why psychiatrist was there with him). Anyway, there are many unfinished rooms and many are finished. One area that was interesting is a cave Ludwig had built for himself.. you walk to this little room past a beautiful view and its a man made cave that he liked..
The place is huge and so many rooms. You cannot take photos though. You book tour ahead of time by buying tickets for a certain time. Then meet inside castle area for your tour number. You cant go yourself and tour, you become part of a group assigned to that tour number and time.
I think the tour is way too expensive ...you cant take pictures. The english speaking tour guide was so hard to understand, her English was pretty bad.
