If you are trying to find a real-life fairytale castle, the Neuschwanstein is a place you are looking for. The fairytale castle stands on the green hills in the Bavarian Alps, in a small village of Hohenschwangau, with towers, turrets, frescoes, and a throne hall. The view from the castle is stunning. It overlooks an Alpine lake and the largest nature preserve in Bavaria. Trust us, it will leave you breathless.
The Neuschwanstein castle is a fine example of European historicism and one of the last significant palace buildings in the 19th century. Today it is a part of UNESCO World Heritage.
The Neuschwanstein castle with its towers and turrets is the iconic example of the Romantic style and remains a recognizable symbol of Bavaria and Germany.
King Ludwig II was inspired during his journeys in 1867 by two castles he visited, the castle Wartburg in Eisenach and Château de Pierrefonds. Christian Jank made the drawings modeled by these two castles, and the architect Eduard Riedel started the construction. The castle is planned as a neo-gothic building, but now it stands as a magnificent building in Romanesque style. King Ludwig hired more than 300 workers working the whole day and night using oil lamps. They used only modern techniques to build the Bavarian castle.
