Neuschwanstein Castle, "New Swanstone Castle" is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds.
The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then more than 61 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures.

Bavaria – Neuschwanstein Castle
Ludwig II tried to create his own universe until his tragic death in 1886. He immersed himself in music and in the world of theater and built palaces that reflected his deepest longings. Herrenchiemsee, based on the Palace of Versailles, was constructed on an island in Lake Chiemsee. Its mirrored hall is 77 meters long -- four meters longer than its French counterpart. Farther west in the Allgäu region is Bavaria's most famous castle, Neuschwanstein. As many as 8,000 visitors a day flock here in the high season. Linderhof Palace, an hour's drive away, was completed during Ludwig's lifetime. He lived here, listening to http://vrzic.com/classical-music/Richard-Wagner.htmlWagner and dreaming in the illuminated Venus grotto.
