2020. Corona. Travelling is a different game. Yet our Fernweh acted up too often. So we arranged a train trip to Germany and Austria. Specifically to Leipzig in Saxony, several spots in Bavaria and returning home with ÖBB‘s Nightjet from Innsbruck in Tyrol to Brussels in Belgium.
As you’re in and out Neuschwanstein Castle in fifteen minutes, you might as well visit the The Museum of the Bavarian Kings in Schwangau. Just nearby. Gau by the way is a district and Schwan a Swan.
As the name of the museum gives away, its subject are the Kings of Bavaria from the House of Wittelsbach.
Again, photos inside were not allowed. I don’t know why as there aren’t that spectacular artifacts. Many portraits, some clothes. But no crown or anything like that.
Ah well. I did make a photo of the coronation robe. What you see is the front.
The museum is not worth a detour but it gives you an extra activity after your short stay in the castle.
