Schloß Neuschwanstein

Schloß Neuschwanstein
Neuschwanstein as seen from the Marienbrücke, Bayern
Schloß Neuschwanstein, lit. New Swan Stone palace, is a 19th-century Bavarian palace on a
rugged hill near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse. Although public photography of the interior is not permitted, it is the most photographed building in Germany and is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations.
Ludwig did not allow visitors to his castles, but after his death in 1886 the castle was opened to the public (in part due to the need to pay off the debts Ludwig incurred financing its construction).
Since that time over 50 million people have visited the Neuschwanstein Castle.
About 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared in several movies, and was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty Castle at both Disneyland Park and Hong Kong Disneyland.

Ein prachtvoller Bau. Leider ist nicht alles zu besichtigen. Aber das, was man sehen darf, einfach wunderschön. Schon alleine das Schloß von aussen, sieht man ja auf deinem Foto, ist eine Besichtigung wert.
