The Fairytale Castles of Ludwig II
In this documentary, art historian Dan Cruickshank explores the rich aesthetic of Ludwig: from the mock-medievalism of Neuschwanstein, which became the inspiration for Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty castle, to the Baroque splendour of Herrenchiemsee. More than flamboyant kitsch, Ludwig's castles are, in fact, the key to unravelling the enigma of their extraordinary creator.
