New Museum Opens Next to Iconic German Castles

History buffs in Germany will want to check out the new Museum of the Bavarian Kings, located next to Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle in Bavaria.

Visitors can learn about the Wittelsbach dynasty and their Bavarian Kings. The exhibit explores "Mad" King Ludwig II and his family as well as the history of the royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Interactive media stations and historic artifacts help connect the past to the present.

The museum is open from 9 am – 7 pm and also offers guided tours in English. Portable audioguides are also available.

The museum is located at Alpseestraße 27 in Hohenschwangau.
