Summary Ludwig II of Bavaria (1864--1886) is more internationally known for his royal palaces than hardly any other regent of the 19th century. They are the symbol of a personal architectural vision which, to this day, fascinates people from all over the world. However, the fame of his palaces has eclipsed other construction activities in the Kingdom of Bavaria: urban developments, hospitals, and schools, theatres and museums, but also factories, railway stations, apartment blocks, churches, and synagogues were created under his regency. This book, for the first time, sheds light on the broad architectural activities in this epoch. Essays and overview illustrations of the building projects of the time provide insights into the diversity of the then building culture and, at the same time, open up a new perspective on the royal palaces.
Ludwig II. von Bayern (1864-1886) ist durch seine Königsschlösser international so bekannt wie kaum ein anderer Regent des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sie sind das Symbol einer persönlichen Architekturvision, die bis heute ein Publikum aus aller Welt fasziniert. Der Ruhm seiner Schlösser hat den Blick auf die andere Bautätigkeit im Königreich Bayern jedoch überstrahlt: Städtebau, Krankenhäuser, Schulbauten, Theater und Museen, aber auch Fabriken, Bahnhöfe, Mietshäuser, Kirchen und Synagogen entstanden unter seiner Regentschaft. Das Buch beleuchtet erstmals das breite Architekturgeschehen dieser Epoche. Essays und Überblicksdarstellungen zu den Bauaufgaben der damaligen Zeit geben Einblicke in die Vielfalt der Baukultur und rücken die Königsschlösser zugleich in eine neue Perspektive.
