Since the death of King Ludwig II, a lot has happened in his former kingdom.

So it’s high time to take another look at his beloved Bavaria. Together with Angela Ascher, the fairytale prince takes a road trip through Bavaria, checking up on his citizens, monitoring technical progress – and discovering the iPad. A journey in four parts to a Bavaria that has some surprises in store – not only for its king. “Die Erfindung Bayerns” offers a completely new and entertaining look at the Bavarian myth.
