THE ROYAL CASTLES IN THE HIGH LANDS OF BA WAIR.I.A.
See illustrations on page 847.
sis"BE royal road of the park of Hohenschwangau runs alongside the greenest waters of the Alp Sea. In truth, these roads are full of inters est, whether seen in summer, autumn, or winter. Perhaps a sledging tour through the whole district, particularly at night, when the peaks gleam ghost-like through the mist, and cast their giant shadows by moonlight over the vast snow-fields, is the most impressive sight. Above the royal park, towering up into the blue ether heaven-high, we descry the pinnacles and buttresses of Neu Schwanstein, King Ludwig's favorite retreat, perched like an eagle's eyrie amid giddy precipices and foaming water-falls. Unfinished as it is, and never to be completed as the gifted monarch intended, the general impression is overpowering. The accessories of rarest wood-carving, and porcelain and furniture of costliest material and every color of the rainbow, cannot be here noticed in detail, but the whole atmosphere of the place breathes the spirit of the monarch who made Richard Wagner his chosen companion. The mighty men of the great German foreworld appear before us on wall and ceiling painted by the brush of Munich artists. Parsifal and Lohengrin, and the mysterious Graal, and the wars and loves and tragedies of the great Nibelungen epic, are there, with the truth and pathos, the tenderness and fierceness, of those early times. Interesting and charming as are the works of art, and their costly framing and setting in the gilded splendor of the palace, all give way before the magic views from the balconies and windows of the castle. The contrast of the savage crags and dark abysses to the east and south, with the wondrous distant horizon of blue and purple, shimmering with many lakes and streams, dotted with countless villages, and dying into hazy distance toward the Danube, is beyond description. The whole great table-land of Bavaria seems at our feet. Entranced by this view, one can believe that the poor excited king who had raised the structure, when called upon to part with it and come down to the depths of abdication and asylum life, was with difficulty held back from leaping over the battlements. The most conspicuous feature of Neu Schwanstein is the north tower, 65 metres (211.25 feet) high, and seeming to rise to a fabulous elevation when viewed from the base of the hill, as the foundations of this really gigantic edifice are on a steep, rocky, almost precipitous part of the great mountain range to the southeast. Amongst the curiosities of this palace are foremost the stalactite grotto on the third story, with a winter-garden and water-fall connected with the king's study; then the royal bed in the state bedchamber, a marvel of wood-carving and rich drapery; further, the floor of the throne-room, a Noah's ark or menagerie in mosaic, and the dressing-table in the royal bedchamber, with vermeil or silver-gilt utensils, a silver swan answering as ewer. Hohenschwangau, the creation, or rather restoration, of an old baronial castle by Maximilian, Ludwig's father, is a lower and less imposing structure, but with much to interest the lover of art and antiquity. It is picturesquely situated on the top of a high rock, amidst striking mountain and forest scenery, and is six miles by rail from Augsburg. The floor is occupied by the queen's apartments, consisting of three salons and three bedchambers. The king's apartments, comprising the same number of rooms, are on the second floor, and the third floor is reserved for the use of the royal princes and for guests. The walls and ceilings are decorated with historical paintings and portraits from the brush of an earlier set of Munich artists than those at Neu Schwanstein. The billiardroom has interesting antiquities of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and a painting of St. Joseph as carpenter, with the child Jesus, by Murillo, of great value. The Tasso Room, used as a bedroom of the king, is adorned with paintings of subjects from the poet's works, and has an artificial orangery and water-fall, and a moon above the bed lighted by artificial means. The Orient Zimmer, occupied by the queen-mother as her bedroom, is furnished throughout with genuine and interesting Oriental furniture, presents from the Sultan. The castle itself is an object of interest as a specimen of a perfect baronial residence of the Middle Ages, and from its highly picturesque position only excelled by that of Neu Schwanstein. Crags, woods, rushing streams, calm deep emerald lakes fringed with the finest timber, and from the balconies that delicious blue shining distance of the Bavarian plains, meet and delight the eye at every turn. A delightful drive of two or three hours brings us to Lindenhof, the forest idyl of the king, in a sequestered solitude of rock and mountain. Here are water-works and fountains, weary stone staircases, artificial grottoes and lakes, with the king's fantastic swan-boat, gorgeous Moorish mosques, clipped shrubberies, and in the house a luxury of coquettish cabinets and boudoirs, with mignon, ornaments and furniture, rarest mosaics, marvellous china, peacocks, silver swans, everlasting statuettes of Bourbon kings, and pastels of their favorite beauties. In the garden the Venus Monopteros in white marble is a fine piece of modern sculpture, and the linden-tree, with staircase and platform among its branches, where the king loved to breakfast, is a pleasing memento of his sympathy with nature. The Lindenhof has lately been leased for next summer by Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt, the Bavarian government having refused to sell it to him. The location is one of the finest in the Bavarian Highlands, commanding superb views of the Tyrolean Mountains and of Lake
