    Neuschwanstein Castle (German: Schloss Neuschwanstein, pronounced [nɔʏˈʃvaːnʃtaɪn]) is a 19th-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 a homage to Richard Wagner. Contrary to common belief, Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and extensive borrowing, not with 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 over 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 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.

    Neuschwanstein castle: Also known as the fairytale castle, it is considered the most beautiful castle in Germany, and one of the most beautiful in the world. Located in the state of Bavaria, this amazing architectural achievement was commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, later known as Ludwig the Mad. In a letter to his muse, the famous German composer, Richard Wagner, he said he wished to build a castle in the style of the old German Knights, in the most beautiful place one could find.
