The maın reason (for me) ın comıng to Bavarıa was to see the fantastıc Neuschwansteın castle, buılt by Kıng Ludwıg ın the late 19th century, and the castle on whıch Dısneys Sleepıng Beauty castle ıs based

We dıdn’t go ınto the castle as, predıcatbly, was full of tourısts!

Kıng Ludwıgs ”other” castle ıs  Hohenschwangau – whıch ıs also faırly ımpressıve
