The Museum of the Bavarian Kings was discovered in 2011 on the banks of Lake Alpsee. Stunning views of the lake, the mountains and Hohenschwangau Castle open from the panoramic windows on the ground floor. The history of the Wittelsbachs, with whom the fate of Bavaria is related, began in the XII century. Several Holy Roman Emperors and kings of Denmark, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Greece, and Bavaria are the representatives of this dynasty. The museum exposition is reminiscent of the trace, which the Bavarian dynasty left in art and architecture: the Royal Residence in Munich, Pompejanum Villa in Aschaffenburg, Hohenschwangau Castle, Neuschwanstein, Linderhof were built thanks to them.
A separate hall is dedicated to the technological breakthroughs: during the reign of Ludwig I the railroad was built; Maximilian II founded a research center – the Glass Palace (Glaspalast), Ludwig II established the Technical University Munich. In one of the halls you can see a masterpiece of Nymphenburg porcelain factory – a service of 328 items, Ludwig III and Maria Teresa received from their children as a gift on the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary in 1918.
