LUDWIG II

by Peter Sehr, Marie Noëlle

synopsis

Ludwig II is one of the great romantic figures of history. No visitor to Bavaria can escape him or his castles, as almost four million of them a year would testify. To enter his world is to experience the real magic kingdom. 125 years after his death, Ludwig’s world of poetry and fantasy still fascinates, transcending language and cultural peculiarities. Who was this man who did not fit his time, whom some held to be mad and others for one of the great minds of his age?
