Neuschwanstein Castle – The Magic Castle Bavaria
Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany is one of those castles look thrilled. Built by Ludwig II of Bavaria in the mid-nineteenth century, a time that were not necessary strengths, was strongly criticized by the insolvency of the German government in those times. Neoclassical style, the king imposed a bizarre rules for its construction and its workers were only of Bavaria, and the materials to be built just outside the region. Besides his inspiration came from the fairy tales and operas of Wagner both had inspired him in his time of youth. Neuschwanstein represents both the architectural style inspired by King Ludwig II, the romanticism and enthusiasm for Richard Wagner.

Visit Neuschwanstein Castle:
To visit the Neuschwanstein Castle Füssen you will have to go and from there a few miles you will come to access the castle. There is a parking lot where you will have to park the car a few hundred meters there is the village of Hohenschwangau with the office where you can buy tickets to enter the castle. In this place there are two castles, so you can buy an integrated ticket with access to the castle of Hohenschwangau. We just went to the castle of Neuschwanstein.
For up to the castle of Neuschwanstein is an interesting way with a bit of slope with 20 or 30 minute walk uphill, so we decided to go ride on a horse carriage to make the experience more like a fairy tale but packed with tourists.
Once you reach the castle, my suggestion is you go to ask turn to make the visit within it. We had to wait about 30 minutes so we could go to have a guide in English. With the 30 minutes we had to wait outside to take pictures outside the castle is spectacular and the views (if the fog or rain will also allow great). The visits are with a guide who will explain the castle and a bit of history and watch the same guide so you can not take pictures, since it is forbidden to take pictures.

Hall of singers Neuschwanstein:
The throne room is also a spectacular hall with gold-painted columns and other colors that occupies two levels in the castle. The throne room is painted with the image of Jesus and 12 apostles. The impressive chandelier in this room is inspired by Byzantine art. This room would represent, according to the original design of Louis II, the divine power of kings and the demonstration of its power without restrictions and did so by merging the throne room with the hall of the Grail of Percival.
Another interesting room in the castle there is the cave, equipped with an artificial waterfall and a system that forms a rainbow. This small room is the cave of Hörselberg Wagner’s opera Tannhäuser from the Teutonic legend on Venusberg.
The castle that Disney copied:
Walt Disney copied his towers inspired by the castles of his story of Sleeping Beauty. If you visit Disney World, you will see a copy of its towers.
