1. Museum of Bavarian Kings


The Museum of Bavarian Kings is a celebration of the Bavarian royal greatness that surrounded the kings of the land and resulted in the magnificent fortifications that dot the landscape here today. Set right on the shores of the Alpsee, the museum resides in the former Grand Hotel Alpenrose and is an architectural mashup of modern glass pathways and timber structures. The exhibitions present the life of the various kings, their architectural endeavours, political machinations and more.
