Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Bavarian castle on a rugged hill near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to the composer Richard Wagner, the King's friend and inspiring muse. Ludwig did not allow visitors to his castles, but after his death in 1886 the Neuschwanstein Castle was opened to the public (in part due to the need to pay off the debts Ludwig incurred financing its construction). Neuschwanstein Castle is the most photographed building in Germany and is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. Unfortunately public photography of the interior is not permitted. Thou there aren´t many rooms opened to the public, mainly because the castle was left unfinished, the ones that you can visit are huge ball rooms extremly rich in details. Neuschwanstein Castle appeared in several movies and was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty Castle at both Disneyland Park and Hong Kong Disneyland.
