Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle is a fantasy turned reality, realized by a man who was insane - King Ludwig II. The castle has never been completed (it would have been too expensive!), but what had been done until Ludwig II. passed away, that can be visited today. When approaching the castle, you can either use a horse-drawn carriage or take a short, steep footpath. We recommend to take the footpath as this will give you a better impression of the dimensions of the castle.

Once you stand in front of the castle, it looks even more impressing due to its size and beautiful details.

This is a detailed shot of the inner building of the castle. If you want to visit the castle, which we recommend, you can do so only by using a guided tour. These will be performed in several major languages.

Neuschwanstein Main Entrance

The main entrance of the castle. Please remember to purchase your tickets down in the village! They do not sell the tickets here at the castle - so you have to walk all way back to get the tickets if you do not have any tickets!

One of the many excellent views from the castle. This is the Alpsee with Hohenschwangau Castle.

Throne Room Neuschwanstein Castle

Okay, Ludwig II. was a bit weird. He built this room as his "Throne Room". The room was never furnished, so the throne itself is missing today. But all the gold and the detailed paintings on the ceiling and walls are stunning.

Neuschwanstein Bridge

From one of the rooms you can see a bridge in the distance, that allows a full view towards the castle. It takes another short, steep footpath to get there, so take your time.

The footpath towards the bridge provides you with more photo opportunities of the castle. As you get on the same level with the basement, you will be able to capture more georgeous views for your album.

The bridge itself is not for the faint hearted: it's high, it's windy, and it's crowded. But it allows you to see...
