Neuschwanstein Castle

Local name: Schloss Neuschwanstein

The castle is a symbol of the Romantic era and the most famous of the castles of the Bavarian King Ludwig II. It comes from 1869. It is one of the most important works of historicism, and its architecture and interiors are an exemplary example of the style of romantic eclecticism.

The rich decor of the castle consists of elements of many different types of architecture that are part of the mentioned romantic eclecticism. Romanesque art is represented by simple geometric shapes, Gothic manifests itself in slender towers and openwork decorations, and the decor of the Ballroom presents the Byzantine style.

The castle was the prototype of the Sleeping Disney Castle. It was also often an element of film scenery, mainly in films telling the story of the life of Louis II. The image of the building was also minted many times on commemorative coins and stamps around the world.
