Expatriates with international healthcare insurance may wish to visit the city of Munich, as it is celebrating King Ludwig II's 125th anniversary.
Describing him as "the fairytale king", spokeswoman for the Bavarian State Opera Anna Kleeblatt explained that a number of different occasions will take place to commemorate him.
Such events may result in an increase in tourists, especially as figures recently released by STR Global revealed positive results across Europe for the hotel industry.
The celebrations will include dinners and concerts at Neuschwanstein Castle as well as several other special events.
Furthermore, there will be guided tours of the opera house – one of the top five in the world, Ms Kleeblatt said – which will focus on the monarch.
"There are some really crazy stories about him," she claimed, adding that he was friendly with composer Richard Wagner and would occasionally arrange private shows for himself.
During these, around 2,000 soldiers would fill the auditorium and have to focus straight ahead on the stage, being forbidden to look at the king, the expert explained.
