A Fairytale Castle by mirosu

The Neuschwanstein Castle really looks like a fairytale castle. It was built in the 19th century in southern Bavaria close to town of Fussen, in a time when castles no longer had strategical and defensive purposes.
The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to German composer Richard Wagner.
The castle was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886.
Since then more than 61 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer.
The construction of the Neuschwanstein castle began in 1869, and originally it was projected to last three year. But Ludwig II wanted the castle to be perfect, so the immense building was not finished even at Ludwig’s death in 1886.
Neuschwanstein Castle has a very beautiful inner garden surrounded by a walled courtyard. It even has an artificial cave. Neuschwanstein’s interior is as beautiful as it’s outside.

I was quite disappointed when Cludes Tomato and I went up there and saw the castle was not lighted on the back side, but i took the camera out because there was some thunder action in the background. Unfortunately they were really small but i wanted to test my legacy lens (Canon FD20mm 2.8) anyway. The outcome is more magic then i expected so … 😀
