It should have left us with plenty of time to get to Austria for check in at 4pm. We set off at around 10am after a delicious buffet breakfast and made it to the castle by about 1pm.

There were many swans that were everywhere, as Neuschwanstein means New Swan Stone Castle. These ...
... just 6 weeks later. Though unfinished, the castle gives psychological insight into a king very different from Louis XIV (who built Versailles). Whereas Versailles was built to demonstrate the power of the king and exert control over the kingdom, Neuschwanstien was built to celebrate art and religion.
