Hotel Munich glossary: Schloß Neuschwanstein, King Ludwigs Castle

Neuschwanstein is a 19th-century Bavarian palace on a rugged hill near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse. 
Ludwig did not allow visitors to his castles, but after his death in 1886 the castle was opened to the public (in part due to the need to pay off the debts Ludwig incurred financing its construction).
So if you have time for only one castle in Munich or around choose Neuschwanstein. It is like a fantasy castle created by Disney except it is real. Inside it is complete with battlements, gables, lookouts, spirl stairways, towers and gates, even courtyards. You're taken on a guided tour lasting about 35 minutes.
