Description:

Neuschwanstein Castle is one of Germany's most visited castles and one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations.  Neuschwanstein means “New Swan Castle” referencing “the Swan Knight” one of Wagner’s characters.

Neuschwanstein Castle, with its white limestone façade and deep blue turrets, is rumored to be the real-life inspiration for the castle in the Disney classic, Cinderella, released in 1950.

The castle is situated near the town of Fussen in Bavaria. It was designed by Bavarian King Ludwig II, also regarded as the "Fairytale Emperor."  King Ludwig was a great admirer and friend of the world-famous composer Richard Wagner. Neuschwanstein Castle was built in his memory and influenced by Wagner's creations, the third floor particularly reflects Ludwig’s admiration of Wagner’s operas.

The Singers Hall, which occupies the entire fourth floor of Neuschwanstein also contains characters from Wagner’s operas. Interestingly enough tourists are not allowed to take photographs of inside because the king didn't want reproductions to be available.
