Neuschwanstein Castle

Between 1869 and 1886, King Ludwig II of Bavaria had the proud and romantic Neuschwanstein castle built on the ruins of an early château. This stronghold is surmounted on a mountain of rock which rises 1000 meters out of the plain amidst forested mountains, not far from Füssen near the Austrian frontier.

It is of Romanesque structure and was built to gratify the young King’s romantic fancy. Intended originally to be built along the lines of the Wartburg, when finished it was of much greater dimensions.

Stretching around the impressive courtyard are the actual manor-house and the ladies' apartments; in the center of the courtyard are the Knights' quarters.

The view of the precipitous Alps and into the plain on the Lech below affords a vista of rare beauty. The halls of the castle are beautifully frescoed depicting the Nordic Sigurd Saga and representations of the deeds of Tannhäuser and Lohengrin.

Beautiful paintings of Walther von der Vogelweide, the great German minnesinger and Hons Sachs the renowned Meistersinger of Nuremberg contribute to the interior splendor.

Besides Tristan and Isolde, the glorification of Parsifal, the Guardian of the Holy Graal, and at the same time symbol of pure German youth, enhances the magnificent interior decoration.
