Neuschwanstein Castle (begun in 1868, but never finished) is King Ludwig II’s grand folly, a monument to the Middle Ages and to the chivalric ideals of kingship that he so venerated. If Ludwig could have turned the clock back about 500 years he would have done, instead he tried to recreate the past through lavish building projects like this one.
It’s one of the most magnificent buildings I’ve ever seen………and possibly the most pointless.

Thank you very much 😊
Wow! This is out of a fairytale, Mark. The shots with it in the landscape are gorgeous.
Thanks Jane…..that’s exactly what it is, a magnificent fairytale castle. I think it inspired the Disney castle too.
Another Wow Mark! 🙂
Thanks again 😊…..hard to take a rubbish image of this though
Thanks….difficult to take a bad image of this place though
We could do with a few more fairytales!
Great pictures Mark and I appreciate that you’ve taken us on a mini tour whilst searching for alternative perspectives.
Thanks Noeline…….not always easy to break away from the norm.
These images are breathtaking!
Calling yourself an “amateur photographer” doesn’t do your work justice.
Thanks, but to be honest it’s difficult to take a bad image of Neuschwanstein 😊
