Photographer's Note

Yes, I know, this castle was already often presented on TE, and, besides, the light is not very beautiful but it is a place where I often went and where I did not still have in my gallery. Furthermore, I could not forget it in my last trip in the region
The foundation stone of the "New Castle" was laid on 5 September 1869. The Gateway Building was constructed first, and Ludwig II lived here for a number of years. The topping-out ceremony for the Palas was not until 1880, and the king moved in in 1884.
Today Neuschwanstein is one of the most popular of all the palaces and castles in Europe. Every year 1.3 million people visit "the castle of the fairy-tale king". In the summer around 6,000 visitors a day stream through rooms that were intended for a single inhabitant.
