Here’s another photo from my first Eurotrip back in 2007: King Ludwig II’s fairy-tale castle, Neuschwanstein. Located in Bavaria, Germany, the castle was designed as an homage to the composer Richard Wagner, which becomes readily apparent as you tour the inside of the castle (unfortunately, they don’t allow you to take photos). It was also an inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty castle in Disneyland.
This photo was taken from the Marienbrücke bridge a short hike away. The bridge, which crosses a huge gorge, provides a perfect postcard photo-op for the castle. I was fortunate to see the castle in all its glory because when I returned two years later, the entire side was covered in scaffolding.
