The castle of King Ludwig II, Neuschwanstein, was the inspiration for the first and the site of the second and it was on my 'bucket list' of places to see ever since my first visit to Europe in 1969. I finally made 44 years later on day 19.
This is not the only castle in the area. There is also Hohenschwangau castle. Imagine having two castles in the same town within shouting distance of each other.
And just to prove I was there.
On my Bucket List: The Netherlands
