Travel Tips: Visit Neuschwanstein Castle

It is probably the most beautiful castle in the world and is located above the village of Hohenschwangau in southwestern Bavaria. It dominates among the high peaks of the Alps and it really is like coming out of a fairy tale!

The 19th century palace-castle was the inspiration for the palace of the beautiful sleeping in the parks of Disneyland. He even appears in many movies.

It is very popular, as over 1 million tourists visit it every year, and it has about 6,000 visitors a day during the summer months.

The palace was built as a personal sanctuary for Louis II and is even said to have been built at his own expense and not at state expense. It opened to the public after his death in 1886. The good thing is that the natural landscape was not disturbed at all resulting in its current wild beauty.

Every season is impressive, I think it becomes even more fabulous when it is snowing.

Of course then access is more difficult but the photos are really unique!
