A symbol of Germany, this castle is both one of the most famous structures in the world and Germany's most visited tourist attraction.
The building's name of Neuschwanstein means 'New Stone Swan'.
The castle's style is predominantly 13th century German Romanesque; King Ludwig II intended that the castle would be built in the authentic style of the old German knights' castles.
The castle's interior is lavish: King Ludwig's bedroom is covered with carved oak panels which depict the legend of Tristan and Isolde whilst the living-room is dedicated to the myth of the Swan Knight, Lohengrin; the Throne Room is surrounded by Byzantine arcades and was influenced by the Haghia Sophia.
