Neuschwanstein Castle In Germany

Built in the late 1800s, the Neuschwanstein Castle in the state of Bavaria in southeast Germany was meant to be the private retreat of the reclusive King Ludwig II of Bavaria. The castle was opened to the public in 1886 and it has seen over 60 million visitors since then. The Neuschwanstein Castle was built in the Romanesque Revival style and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty castle. The castle is one of the most popular in Europe and currently sees over 1.3 million visitors a year and as many as 6,000 per day in the summer months.

I have always excited to see this castle for so many years. It was stunningly beautiful as I have expected, just like a castles in fairy tale. We didn't spent more time in the castle but I wish next time I would surely spent whole day in it. We also get amazing shots of the fantastic views of the castle. It is the only place in Germany which I always would like to see and explore.
