Even a king has dreams. Ludwig's was a fairytale castle like Neuschwanstein Castle. On this tour you will find out for yourself if his dream came true. Therefore, you start from the beautiful Tannheim first in the direction of Pfronten, the city outside whose gates is the Falkenstein Castle, which was commissioned by King Ludwig at the end of the 19th century. A beautiful, steep road leads up to the ruin on the Falkenstein, where at 1268 meters the highest castle in Germany is waiting for you. Take good note of what it looks like here, so you can check later if Ludwig could fulfill his dream.Continue down the Burgstraße and after a rapid descent for a while on quiet, flat roads past the beautiful Weißensee in the direction of Füssen. Here you still cross the Lech and you are already heading for the submission of King Ludwig's dream of owning a home. We do not want to offend the monarch, but we fear that Neuschwanstein was one size too big. But judge for yourself. The king does not care - he died before even one stone of his castle was set.
