Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein Castle


A magnet for tourists from all over the world

Tourists from all over the world associate one sight in particular with Germany: Neuschwanstein Castle. The castle with its well-known silhouette and majestic limestone façade is one of the most visited castles and palaces in Europe and attracts around 1.4 million people every year. Especially in summer, more than 6,000 visitors a day come to Neuschwanstein, which is also fondly called the “castle of the fairytale king”. A contradiction to the original purpose of the building: the reclusive King Ludwig II had actually built the castle to be able to withdraw from the public eye. Just seven weeks after his death in 1886, the fairytale castle was opened to the public.
