Seven weeks after the death of King Ludwig II in 1886, Neuschwanstein was opened to the public. The shy king had built the castle in order to withdraw from public life – now vast numbers of people came to view his private refuge.
The construction of the breathtaking Neuschwanstein Castle began in the summer of 1868, when up to eight meters of stone were outcropped to make way for the foundation of the castle. In June the next year, the new access roads ...
... Munich arrived and hundreds of people came spilling out of the train as they jumped from the train platform onto the tracks and ran across multiple rail lines to get on the buses. It was crazy and just a small taste of the madness ahead at the castle. When we arrived the line to get tickets was massive and at 10:30 they were booking tours already for 5:30pm.

Despite being nearly killed at Le Collet in France and despite the slowness of supposedly fast autobahns ...
... place with beautiful gardens, then we went to Neuschwanstein to see the castle that inspired Disney. It was a great day of spectacular views. This king had so much money that we was able to cover most of his walls in gold, and he had a dining table that worked on a lift system so that it could be loaded in the kitchen below his dining room and brought up through the floor when it was ready. Oh to be insanely wealthy... Once we got back around 7pm we decided to check out ...
