Neuschwanstein Castle

Louis II wanted to reconstruct the ruin of Vorderschwangau in the style of a German knight's castle. Where architecture and furnishing of his fairytale castle were concerned the king was not only inspired by the Middle Ages but also by the Moorish culture in Spain. Like a dream in stone come true with playful turrets and pinnacles we still admire the last royal residence dwarfed by the snowcapped peaks of the Alps.
