Inspired by the sight of the impressive castle of the Swan King “Neuschwanstein” only 4000m away, the architect Josephine Barbarino created a building, which combines Ludwig’s romantic dream world with his passion for technological progress!
I took 19 months from laying the first stone on the King’s birthday on August 25, 1998 until the grand opening on March 25, 2000.
The spectacular location directly on the lake on an artificially raised peninsula (480 trucks with gravel were used to raise the peninsula!) and the divine romantic baroque garden both combined with the hugely dimensioned theatre with a length of 159.80m and height of 31.25m seats 1350 guests. In addition, there are 5 restaurants with a unique view of the lake and the castle.
