Neuschwanstein Castle is the most well know castle in the world.It was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as the “Fairytale King”. The Castle was built in the 19th century.
This fairytale look of the Neuschwanstein castle inspired Walt Disney to create the Magic Kingdom. Today, Neuschwanstein is the most visited castle in Germany, and one of the most popular tourist destination in the world. Every year over 1.300.000 people crosses its gate.
King Ludwig II liked his privacy and in a castle like this he could go for days without seeing anyone. It was beautiful. Too bad I couldn’t take any pictures in any of these castles.
