King Ludwig II of Bavaria and his(its) fairy tale locks are of the world a notion. As the latter true king of the century Paul Verlaine praised him in his(its) sonnet. His(its) contemporaries reproached him with love of extravagance. But today the locks belong to Ludwigs II. which submit so gorgeously to the Alpine landscape, to the most-visited sights of Bavaria. Millions from guests are pulled annually in their(her) spell. Richard Wagner, Sisi and the solitude:
half a year after his(its) adulthood Ludwig was crowned after the surprising death of his(its) father Maximilian in 1864 to the king of Bavaria. Directly after his(its) assumption of office Ludwig II Richard Wagner appealed to Munich. He inundated the composer with money and favour proofs, some of his(its) works were performed in the Isar.
The world of the music dramas of Wagner became for the Herscher the example, even if the composer had to leave Munich again and his(its) festival opera house in Bayreuth ge after one and a half years.

Neuschwanstein Castle
"New Swanstone Castle" is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds.

The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then more than 61 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures In 1868, the ruins of the medieval twin castles were completely demolished; the remains of the old keep were blown up.

The foundation stone for the palace was laid on September 5, 1869; in 1872 its cellar was completed and in 1876, everything up to the first floor, the gatehouse being finished first. At the end of 1882 it was completed and fully furnished, allowing Ludwig to take provisional lodgings there and observe the ongoing construction work. In 1874, management of the civil works passed from Eduard Riedel to Georg von Dollmann. The topping out ceremony for the Palas was in 1880, and in 1884, the king was able to move into the new building. In the same year the direction of the project passed to Julius Hofmann, after Dollmann had fallen from the King's favor.

The palace was erected as a conventional brick construction and later encased in various types of rock. The white limestone used for the fronts came from a nearby quarry. The sandstone bricks for the portals and bay windows came from Schlaitdorf in Württemberg. Marble from Untersberg near Salzburg was used for the windows, the arch ribs, the columns and the capitals. The Throne Hall was a later addition to the plans and required a steel framework.

The transport of building materials was facilitated by scaffolding and a steam crane that lifted the material to the construction site. Another crane was used at the construction site. The recently founded Dampfkessel-Revisionsverein (Steam Boiler Inspection Association) regularly inspected both boilers.
