Masterpiece of Ludwig II's romantic ideals, Neuschwanstein is Germany's most famous castle and has inspired Disneyland's Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty Castles.

It was built between 1869 and 1892 as a homage to the world of Germanic mythology epitomized by Richard Wagner's operas, notably the scenes of Tannhaüser depicted in the Sängersaal.
