"Neuschwanstein Entrance", © 1984 Elroy Christenson
The castle of Neuschwanstein was one of the last castles built by "Mad King Ludwig" of Bavaria. He was very taken with Teutonic legends and Romanticism. It was built as a Neo-Gothic building based on the legends and Wagner's opera "Lohengrin" and "TannhŠuser".
