Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and in honor of Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds.
Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most visited castles in Germany and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
Neuschwanstein means “New Swan Stone”. The name of the castle derives from one of Wagner’s opera’s characters, the Swan Knight.
Today, more than 1.5 million visitors come to see Germany’s fairy tale castles, making it one of the most visited castles in the world.
The castle was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria
Ludwig slept only 11 nights in the castle.
Ludwig was Richard Wagner’s patron, and many rooms of the castle were inspired by Wagner’s operas.
The bedroom adjacent to the dining room and the subsequent house chapel are the only rooms of the palace that remain in the neo-Gothic style. The king’s bedroom is dominated by a huge bed adorned with carvings. Fourteen carvers worked more than four years on the bed canopy with its numerous pinnacles and on the oaken panelings
