The three legendary structures conceived by King Ludwig II are showcased in this photographic exploration. Documenting what was revered as his dream home, the study delves into the construction of Neuschwanstein Castle, from the foundations being laid to the eventual completion of its great hall. His creations at Schloss Linderhof—the only castle to be finished—and Schloss Herrenchiemsee are also chronicled, capturing their evolution in a stylish array of images. Revealing the inspiration behind these masterly works, this consideration reflects on the subject’s renowned passion for building, love of art and music, and turbulent life.
Ernst Wrba is a freelance photographer who specializes in the castles and palaces of Germany. He has contributed to numerous books on regional and international topics. Michael Kühler is an author of several books on regional studies and travel.
