Neuschwanstein Castle – 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 an homage to Richard Wagner.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.The palace has been the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle.
