    Neuschwanstein Castle

    Neuschwanstein Castle

    Favorite thing: This photo was taken while we went on a hike to the bridge (Marienbrucke) nearby...

    There are some amazing views on that walk and I would recommend it to anyone!! :) The bridge is very high though so it can be scary for people with a fear of heights.

    Daytrip to Neuschwanstein

    by globetrott Written Aug 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing:
    Neuschwanstein is one of the very top destinations of Bavaria and even Europe.
    The castle was built by king Ludwig II of Bavaria, and shortly after it was finished, the kind died under strange circumstances.
    He spent just 9 days inside the castle, that was opened to the public already a few days after his death, as the state of Bavaria needed a lot of money to pay for the castles of King Ludwig.

    There are a lot more pics and infos on my Neuschwanstein-page !

    Neuschwanstein Castle

    Favorite thing: Make a day trip to Fussen and then visit the Neuschwanstein Castle... Make sure you go on a tour inside, it's fantastic! We caught a horse and cart up to the top of the mountain rather than walking, it was a nice trip up, and then after our tour we walked around one of the hiking tracks near by.
