Neuschwanstein

9.9/10

Neuschwanstein ye un castiellu llevantáu por orde de Lluis II de Baviera (n'alemán Ludwig), y significa la nueva piedra del Cisne (Schwan significa Cisne). Alcuéntrase en Baviera, Alemaña.

Lluis pidió dos condiciones na so construcción: primera, sería edificáu por trabayadores bávaros, y con materiales bávaros, lo que favoreció la creación d'una artesanía poderosa en Baviera que fixo d'ella unu de los mayores enclaves industriales d'Alemaña fasta los nuesos díes. Y segunda, por fuera debía asemeyase a los castiellos de los cuentos de fades que tanto admiraba na so mocedá, pero per dientro debía tener tolos avances teunolóxicos de la dómina. El castiellu asemeyábase tanto a los cuentos tradicionales alemanes que foi escoyíu pola Disney como modelu pa'l castiellu de la Bella Durmiente, el cual ye'l principal símbolu (tienen una réplica nesti parque) del Disneyland Resort Paris o Eurodisney. Per dientro, amás de continues referencies a estos cuentos o a diverses lleendes y personaxes medievales (Tristán ya Isolda, Fernando el Católicu), contien una completa rede de lluz llétrica, el primer teléfonu móvil de la historia (con una cobertura de seis metros), una cocina qu'aprovechaba la calor siguiendo riegles ellaboraes por Leonardo da Vinci, y prestoses vistes y paisaxes de los Alpes, incluyendo una cascada que podía contemplase dende l'habitación del gobernante.

Col retiru voluntariu de la capital, Munich, Luis II treslladóse a esti castiellu, y terminó viviendo ellí de manera permanente, supervisando la so construcción dende unes escaleres que constituyíen el sitiu favoritu pa siguir los avances de la obra. Sicasí, nun pudo contemplalu termináu namás qu'unos díes, al morrer afogáu n'un llagu de los alredores.

Los descendientes de Lluis II vendiéronlu al gobiernu bávaru, pasando más tarde al alemán. La cantidá pola que lu vendieron iguala a los ingresos anuales actuales que'l castiellu obtien pola cantidá de turistes que van a visitalu.

Surroundings of the castle and castle itself are so picturesque, stunning, and breathtaking... but inside the castle is dark and gloomy. Obviously, the resident (king Ludwig II) was an unhappy person.

Tour felt rushed and only covers the small-ish percentage of the castle which was fully completed but it's an impressive building nonetheless and worth a visit if nearby

If you can, avoid the crowds! Take the 10-15 minute walk to the view bridge of the castle - great angle for pictures. Castle is amazing and worth the trip.

A must see. Completely crowded, even in wintertime. Marienbrucke And the road there closed even if there was a bit of snow ???? Parking 7€. Road up is quite easy, if with child worth to take a stroller.

Beautiful Disney-like castle. You can do a 20-minute walk up from the parking area or hop into a horse car for 6€. Ticket lines are long on the holidays and you may not get a chance to enter castle.

I hiked up to the castle, It's not worth the extra cost to take the horse-drawn carriage. In the winter the castle looks magical. If you like wine, try a warm mug of Glühwein once you reach the top!
