Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein was built from 1868 by King Ludwig II of Bavaria and is probably the best known castle in the world. It is a mixture of styles and the initial blueprint was penned by a theatre designer rather than an architect.

The castle was built 2000m above the valley floor and its centre piece became the lavish Sängersaal (Minstrel’s Hall) where Ludwig could indulge in his obsession with Wagner and medieval knights. Rather madly, for all the money spent on it, when it was finished in 1886 the first sky scrapers in America were being built.

The BMW Museum is one of the most popular company museums in Germany. And of all the companies sights in Munich, only the Deutsches Museum and the Neue Pinakothek (New Gallery) attract more visitors. Each year some 250,000 people from all over the world come the BMW Museum – a story of success for which there are good reasons, because the BMW Museum does not just present the history of BMW and the engines, motorcycles and automobiles manufactured by the company in the course of its first 75 years.

Rather, the BMW Museum achieves an entirely different goal. It enables its visitors to marvel at the horizons of transport technology through the eyes of five generations. From the early days at the beginning of this century and into the next millenium. Horizons which show the development of ideas, dreams, philosophies, work, society and the individual mobility made possible by technology. In this way the BMW Museum possibly makes it a bit easier to understand the present as the future of our past and as the past of our future.
