Beautiful Neuschwanstein Castle In Germany

Neuschwanstein CastleThe beautiful Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century palace on a rugged hill of the foothills of the Alps in the very south of Germany, very close to border with Austria.
The castle was built atop a rock ledge over the Pöllat Gorge in the Bavarian Alps by order of Bavaria’s King Louis II.
In keeping with its romantic design, the castle’s two-story throne room is modeled after a Byzantine basilica; stars decorate its blue vaulted ceiling, which is supported by red porphyry columns.
Despite remaining unfinished, Neuschwanstein Castle became one of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe, receiving about 1.3 million visitors each year. It also served as inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle.
King Ludwig created his own fantasy world of myths and fairytales, as can be seen in the Singers’ Hall.
