More Views of Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
Walt Disney looked for inspiration to stage the story of Sleeping Beauty and in Neuschwanstein Castle he found the answer. Did the mad King Ludwig II (1845 – 1886) ever imagine how his castle would become every child’s dream!
King Ludwig’s instructions for building the castle: “It is my intention to rebuild the old castle ruin at Hohenschwangau near the Pollat Gorge in the authentic style of the old German knights’ castles… the location is the most beautiful one could find, holy and unapproachable, a worthy temple for the divine friend who has brought salvation and true blessing to the world.”
Unfortunately he did not live long to see his creation complete. Yet even in its incomplete state the castle, particularly the interiors, look grand. Sharing with you all some more views of Neuschwanstein Castle.
