Neuschwanstein was built by Bavarian King Ludwig II starting in 1869 as a summer palace and homage to Richard Wagner and his glorification of medieval times. ...

It was built originally as a fortress several hundred years ago and by the early 1800's had fallen into disrepair. Ludwig's father Maximillian restored the property for use as his royal residence and it was there that Ludwig ...
