Winter Visit to Neuschwanstein Castle in Hohenschwangau, Bavaria

The Neuschwanstein Castle is the famous castle commissioned by King Ludiwg II, king of Bavaria, Germany in 1868. More than a million of tourists and visitors from all over the world visit the castle every year.

The Schloss Neuschwanstein, as it is called in German, is located on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. It was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886.
