Neuschwanstein castle

In the Schwangau near Füssen
The fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein was built on order of King Ludwig II. and construction began in 1868. Set on a craggy outcrop of rock against a dramatic mountain background it recreated, as Richard Wagner wrote, "the castle of an archetypal teutonic knight".
