25The castle was built for the Fairy Tale King
King Ludwig II was a reclusive and eccentric king. He wanted to keep to himself and had particular oddities about him. Because of his odd behavior, he was known as the fairytale king, which ended up being quite fitting because he commissioned the creation of the castle that inspired Cinderella
and Sleeping Beauty’s castles. Just looking at the castle makes you feel like you’ve traveled through space and time and have landed right in front of a storybook castle that would host a princess and maybe an evil queen.
