HOUSE OF WITTELSBACH

THE HOUSE OF WITTELSBACH ‒ 1,000 YEARS OF HISTORY AND CULTURE

»Members of the House of Wittelsbach ruled over Bavaria for 738 years from 1180 to 1918. As dukes, prince-electors and kings, they shaped the land in so many different and striking ways that one would struggle to find another state in Europe upon which a dynasty has left such a lasting impression. This lasting legacy is clearly reflected in the formation of the Bavarian statehood, the intensive promotion of art and culture, the balance of tradition and progress – and ultimately in the unmistakability of the image that the outside world has of Bavaria.« (Hans-Michael Körner, Bavarian historian)
