Another shot of the famous Neuschwanstein Castle 🏰 im still heavily amazed by this beautiful building 😍 .
“Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria is Germany's premiere fairy tale castle. It is a dreamy blend of the best of Roman, Gothic, and Byzantine style architecture, a concept known as Burgenromantik in German. A fairly modern castle from the 19th-century, it pays homage to the German composer Richard Wagner and was designed by the (possibly mad) King Ludwig II of Bavaria at an astronomical cost of 14 million Deutschmark—roughly $8 million.
Today, it is one of the country's top destinations. It inspired Walt Disney's theme park castles and has legions of fans—about 1.3 million people visit it every year looking for that picture perfect moment.
Did you know that both, lake Hintersee and the adjoining Zauberwald (magic forest), actually originated from a landslide?
Isn't it now ironic that something we perceive as truly devastating can create something so beautiful and romantic? Nature truly is its own artist. 🌲
