Apparently King Ludwig II of Bavaria was a bit of an eccentric but what fun it is to see what he has done with his money. The much-loved king lived in a fantasy world and built many castles in Bavaria unknowingly giving the area a tourist industry today. On our trip to Bavaria, we visited the Neuschwanstein Castle along the Romantic road to see what inspired the Walt Disney enchanted kingdom castle.
The whole village revolves around showing off the castle. There is even a little castle on the other side of town, presumably to balance it off. Just a lovely place to stay the night and make sure you make it early enough to check out a tour of the castle.
