Hohenschwangau, the childhood residence of Ludwig II
Neuschwanstein from the bottom of the cliff
The Marienbrücke, a wooden bridge built in the mid 19th century to survey the surrounding lands.
Schloss Neuschwanstein from the Marienbrücke
And yet again
The view bellow the bridge. The water is beautifully fresh and pristine.

On my way to visit the king
The back facade of the castle
The front entrance
The inside stronghold
Pictures are not allowed in the castle, but I managed to sneak a few. This is the prayer hall.
The king’s thrown and counsel room
This room is located on the top story and is the only part of the castle still in use. It is dedicated, like the entire castle, to Richard Wagner and is decorated like a play set.
