Magnificent Castle

Looks familiar? This is Neuschwanstein Castle [New Swan Stone Castle], constructed by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, Germany... which inspired the design of the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland. The inspiration for the Cinderella Castles at other Disney parks is sometimes incorrectly attributed to this.

This castle was built as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner (musician), the Kings inspiring muse.

It is said to be also a candidate for the new seven wonders of the world.

A place not to miss if you're visiting Europe, indeed!
