The Castle that Inspired the Magic Kingdom

Bavaria / Germany

I’ve been lucky to visit Schloss Neuschwanstein (Neuschwanstein Castle) two times during different seasons. The first time was a few months ago when the castle was covered in ice and snow. And again, just last week with my mom on a beautiful spring day.

Neuschwanstein is located in Bavaria, Germany and is one of the most recognized castles in the world. It was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, however, he died before it was fully completed. Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at the Disney theme parks were inspired by Neuschwanstein. The area around the castle truly looks like a fairytale land!

  1. Beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing those.
    I have been visiting the castle when I was a child, and before I knew it served as inspiration for disney. I remember that I was impressed, especially by the suits of armor.

  3. Stunning photos. Especially that last one with the lake in the background. I have to visit. Gorgeous. Long Live Ludwig and Disney!

  4. I am not trained in photography by any means whatsoever. However, to me, that photograph of the (entire) castle is perfect. I don’t see how any photograph could be more perfect. Your photo is beautiful! (The castle isn’t too bad either 🙂 )
