NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE

Neuschwanstein CastleCompleted in 1886, Neuschwanstein Castle is a fairy-tale castle built in the Romanesque Revival style as a retreat and homage to composer Richard Wagner by notorious King Ludwig II of Bavaria who wanted to live somewhere designed ‘in the authentic style of the old German knights.’ Ludwig paid for the castle from his personal fortune and it was the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle! Over 1.3m visitors come to Neuschwanstein every year, including upwards of 6,000 a day in the summer months and in an ironic twist of fate, it wasn’t completed until seven weeks after the king died.
