Visit Peles, the most beautiful royal palace in Europe. Ludwig’s alone may bring about the same fairy-tale athmosphere.

The custodians report a faint smell of violets whenever the ghost of the queen returns to the nest of so many loving memories.

Cross the mountains into Transylvania and visit Castle Bran – her summer residence since 1921 and site of poetic reveries; the queen restored the castle into a romantic, fairy-tale habitat.
