Touring Hohenschwangau Castle gives visitors an insight into what life was like for the Bavarian royal family, and others during the 1800s.
The Hall of Heroes is also known as the banquet hall. This is the largest room in the Hohenschwangau Castle. Visitors can see a beautiful collection of art work that depict various scenes from the time period this castle was build. Highlights include art work that showcase the Wilkinia Saga and Dietrich von Bern.
The Queen’s Bedroom is the bedroom that Queen Mary occupied. Between the vibrant wallpaper and carpet, as well as the brightly hued decorations, visitors can see the Greek and Turkish influences that created the design in this room. The overall bright design can be contributed to the fact King Maximilian II decorated this room after he returned from Greece and Turkey.
The Hohenstaufen Room served many purposes. When King Maximilian II occupied the castle, he used the Hohenstaufen Room as a dressing room. Following his father’s footsteps, King Ludwig II also used this room as a dressing room. But, as he grew older King Ludwig II also used the room as a place to play and listen to music, which is why there is a piano in the corner of the room. Many composers played in this room, most notably Richard Wagner.
The King’s Bedroom is also known as the Tasso Room. King Ludwig II occupied this room and even had a full starry night sky with stars and a moon that illuminated featured on the ceiling.
The Berchta Room is where Queen Mary used to write. Taking inspiration from her bedroom, the Berchta Room features similar colors and wallpaper that Queen Mary’s bedroom had. Other features of this room include gorgeous and delicate ornaments, as well as a mural that depicts the legend behind Charlemagne’s birth.
