Yet another of the eccentric King Ludwig II's magnificently odd architectural creations.

If you like castles you should try to see this wonderful example . I suggest taking the bus up to the castle as the walk is quite steep. A tour guide is a great enhancement to the experience.

Gobs of people; beaucoup tour buses. Large groups are herded through the castle as quickly as possible. There is little time to appreciate what you are seeing. Lots of commercial vendors everywhere, ruining the atmosphere. Totally commercialized. Tourism in the extreme. The best part was...More

While King Ludwig II and his splendor is only a small part of Bavaria's history, the way he built his castles exemplifies the grandeur and beauty of the state's length existence. You will see on your way to the castle why he chose this place...More
