It was completed in 1873, at a massive cost to the government and people in which hundreds of craftsmen were employed. During it's construction, the castle was modified and enlarged. As it went up so did the expenses. The king and some of his family moved into the palace in 1884. Richard Wagner, whom the building was dedicated to, died in 1883 and was never able to set foot in the palace. Ludwig himself only was able to live there 172 days, before he died in 1886.
