The Fairy-Tale Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle built by Ludwig 2 of Bavaria in Germany

Neuschwanstein, Germany, August 2010

The Neuschwanstein castle was indeed built to look like one from fairy-tales, even if “fitted with the latest technical innovations of the late 19th century”. The castle served as location to several Hollywood movies, and as model for the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland. But what gives it this fairy-tale allure is not only its shape with slender, tall towers, it is also the whole landscape of breathtaking beauty where the castle is located: the greatness of the Alps contrasting with the flat plateau right near them, the forests and the lakes.
