Hohenschwangau Castle or Schloss Hohenschwangau (lit: High Swan County Palace) is a 19th-century palace in southern Germany. It was the childhood residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria and was built by his father, King Maximilian II of Bavaria. It is located in the German village of Hohenschwangau near the town of Füssen, part of the county of Ostallgäu in southwestern Bavaria, Germany, very close to the border with Austria.
Hohenschwangau Castle was built on the remains of the fortress Schuangau, which was first mentioned in historical records dating from the 12th Century. A family of knights was responsible for the construction of the medieval fortress, and it served as the seat of the local government of Schwangau. In 1523, the schloss was described as having walls which were too thin to be useful for defensive purposes. After the demise of the knights in the 16th Century, the fortress changed hands several times. The decay of the fortress continued until it finally fell into ruins at the beginning of the 19th Century.
In April 1829, Crown Prince Maximilian (the later King Maximilian II of Bavaria) discovered the historic site during a walking tour and reacted enthusiastically to the beauty of the surrounding area. He acquired the ruins - then still known as Schwanstein - in 1832. In February 1833, the reconstruction of the Castle began, continuing until 1837, with additions up to 1855. The architect in charge, Domenico Quaglio, was responsible for the neogothic style of the exterior design. He died in 1837 and the task was continued by Joseph Daniel Ohlmüller (died 1839) and Georg Friedrich Ziebland. Queen Marie created an alpine garden with plants gathered from all over the alps.
Hohenschwangau was the official summer and hunting residence of Maximilian, his wife Marie of Prussia, and their two sons Ludwig (the later King Ludwig II of Bavaria) and Otto (the later King Otto I of Bavaria). The young princes spent many years of their adolescence here. The King and the Queen lived in the main building, and the boys in the annex.

Despite the overcast sky you captured the beautiful landscape clear enough to enjoy this wonderful panorama composed of lots of densely forested hills, high mountain peaks, a village at a beautiful lake and another majestic castle on a fantastic setting.
It looks like an excellent region for hiking and discovering the different viewpoints over the countryside.
Best regards, Paul

L'environnement est tout simplement magnifique.

Enjoy the weekend - B.

Quel beau point de vue sur la vallée ainsi que sur la rivière qui la traverse. Les nuages gris ajoutent une touche dramatique à l'ensemble. Le post traitement est efficace.
mohammad_H (9548) 2014-06-07 4:30
Green view in the foreground and the background mountains, clouds
Beautiful setting with good resolution
Pleasant and spectacular
Nice sense of calm to the viewer
Have a nice day
Noel_Byrne (25640) 2014-06-07 4:45
now this is a view we don't often get to see, the other direction and what a beautiful view it is. Those distant mountains are quite spooky and I would expect to find this scene in Transylvania! The subdued lighting makes the whole scene very tranquil and very appealing
thanks as always
mesutilgim (86558) 2014-06-07 4:50
Hello dear Danos,
Also this pov of the other side of Schloss Neusschwanstein is not much known.
It seems you are going a scientific paper in regards to this beautiful caslet full of many stories.
Good TE entry enriched with many interesting and usefull notes.
TFS and have a nice weekend
pierrefonds (58241) 2014-06-07 5:34
The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the valley and of the mountains. The cloudy sky has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
jemaflor (86548) 2014-06-07 8:52
Great pov with mountains, castel and water, very beautiful landscape,the capture is well managed,tfs.
geoant68 (331) 2014-06-07 8:54
Δάνο γεια σου,
αυτή εδώ με την πανοραμική θέα του μπαλκονιού είναι συμπληρωματική της προηγούμενης.Ανεπανάληπτο το σκηνικό,με το χωτιό ν΄ απλώνεται μέσα στα δένδρα και το άλλο το Hohenschwangau να μοιάζει σαν μινιατούρα μπροστά στο Neuschwanstein,
rychem (25080) 2014-06-07 9:10
Fantastic photo of the Bavarian landscape, it looks like from the movie "Lord of the rings", splendid shot
Fis2 (87273) 2014-06-07 9:11
Beautiful landscape with a castle in the background.
I like POV and colors.
Photo has climate.
COSTANTINO (57180) 2014-06-07 10:12
Δάνο γειά σου
Ομορφη πανοραμική φώτο με θέα και εντυπωσιακά χρώματα

και να περνάς καλα
nikkitta (15228) 2014-06-07 12:57
Like the panoramic landscape taken from the castle, impresive mountain at the back, the lake and the golden castle as the main subjects here
From castle to castle would also be a good title
Good TE contribution with this not common capture
Very well done, congrats

Δάνο, εντυπωσιακή θέα και σύνθεση..πόσα να χωρέσει ο φακός σου απο αυτην την μαγεία του τοπίου!!!
αν και εχει συννεφιά, το πράσινο ειναι τονισμένο ομορφα και το βάθος τής εικόνας ειναι υπέροχο με το ποτάμι να κυλάει ηρεμα..πέρασες ωραία και φαίνεται!!
καλημέρα και καλο τριήμερο!!
ourania (33433) 2014-06-07 22:34
αυτή η πλευρά προσφέρει επίσης μια πολύ όμορφη θέα, η λίμνη, τα βουνά και τα δάση αποτελούν ένα ξεχωριστό, πολύ γοητευτικό φυσικό τοπίο. Το άτονο φως και τα σκούρα χρώματα, πρόσθεσαν μια συναρπαστική αίσθηση μυστηρίου και έδωσαν στην ατμόσφαιρα μια απόκοσμη ένταση. Μου αρέσει πολύ τόσο η περιγραφή όσο και η απόδοση αυτής της ατμόσφαιρας. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή Κυριακή,
shreya2000 (1266) 2014-06-07 23:52
Beautiful panoramic view. Very nice pic. The city is located in a very beautiful area. Nice atmosphere.

landscape here is beautiful. Good shot from high POV on balcony. Photo I like a lot.
Have a nice day.
ikeharel (59435) 2014-06-08 1:07
fabulous view from the castle, inspite a hazey day condition, Danos.
The village "dip" in green forest and along a lake, the sight takes the view towards the mountains on far.
Location is amazing, the castle has a prominent point above the valley.
Nice taken shot, kalimera.
dip (23640) 2014-06-08 7:24
Δάνο γεια σου,
υπέροχη πανοραμική θέα της περιοχής,το τοπίο στην περιοχή είναι εντυπωσιακό,
κλασσικό και πάντα πολύ αποτελεσματικό το σημείο λήψης,μία παρόμοια (όπως και την προηγούμενη) έχω τραβήξει κάποτε με αναλογική κάμερα,έχω πολύ καιρό να πάω σ αυτά τα όμορφα μέρη,
σήμερα έχουμε ήλιο με 28 βαθμούς...
jcpix (13716) 2014-06-08 19:38
Seeing this picture, along with the previous, had me revisiting my old 35mm prints of this same location and views. Sadly, mine still don't look any better...so I'll continue to admire yours instead. :) A vivid display of the surrounding countryside, with the Hohenschwangau Castle firmly utilized as the centerpiece. A stunning view over the mountains and landscape, and one which you've detailed to convey its allure. Another beauty! Have a great week ahead. All the best.
mcmtanyel (14537) 2014-06-08 19:57
Enchanted lands with magical skies. Your photo does justice to the beauty of the scenery with lovely colors, excellent DOF and light.
mkamionka (31179) 2014-06-09 3:54
in spite of challenging weather conditions you have done a really great job here. It is interesting to see the context of the castle. I had a pleasure to climb the Alps in this region so I could see the Neuschwanstein from above as well. This is really a beautiful place.
adramad (39078) 2014-06-09 9:07
Awesome this huge landscape, across from Neuschwanstein Castle.
These wonderful mountains of abundant vegetation, both population lakeshore, as we see the castle on the top are two ideal additions, a real beauty chain we see the Alps in the background.
A gorgeous image with good color, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good week.
All the best.
Tigerlily (3107) 2014-06-09 13:37
Very beautiful shot. Looks like a painting. Wonderful green colour, beautiful detail.. very well done.
A very good evening to you.
abmdsudi (44680) 2014-06-09 16:17
Beautiful lush green enchants the whole depth of the landscape taken from good vantage point. What a combination and contrast to grey, a shot deep in details and colours to draw attention and that sky enhances superbly. Great capture, tfs
jmdias (56955) 2014-06-10 1:58
I never had seen an image of the landscape around the castle like this. very nice details of the place, very beautiful compo and landscape. TFS.
fabbs99 (16779) 2014-06-12 23:10

Splendide paysage verdoyant avec vue sur le château, le lac, l'effet graphique des montagnes a horizon sous le ciel nuageux, bon POV et couleurs
macjake (57728) 2014-06-14 15:46
this one is a great TE post too because how often do we get to see the 'other' side of this famous Castle.
you've got everything in there, a lake, mountains, lush greens, clouds...even a town below there too.
Indrasish (2883) 2014-06-16 2:27
what a landscape photography.. I like your nice composition.. I also like the background and it is very attractive for my, Because In computer graphics painting I often paint this type of atmosphere.. I also love this warm colors and the greenery.. Very well done..
Good afternoon and best wishes from Kolkata..
Angshu (56182) 2014-06-17 5:20
Wonderful view from high above...I have never seen this POV before with the lake on the left and the fascinating Hohenschwangau Castle
standing aloft above the village. The dramatic clouds create a fine effect. Good exposure management to show us this fine view.
omid266 (5838) 2014-06-17 21:30
Dear my friend,

Kielia (23847) 2014-06-18 8:23
you are presenting another wonderful view on this fascinating landscape thus giving the Viewer an excellent idea of the castle's location. The moody colors make the image very attractive. My compliments!
tatadalou (6727) 2014-06-19 12:13
That's a wonderful shot of the place. The castle appears to be a great viewpoint on mountains and this nice lake.
Good framing. Thanks for sharing.
clic (15358) 2014-06-19 16:14
Geia sou Danos
Now I understand why the recluse king chose such an idyllic area to establish his castle!
So much greenery and hilly soil, as far as the eye can see, compose a soothing pastoral environment conducive to satisfy his surly character
Please sell this monumental piece of Bayern to a psychiatrist office, to calm down bad tempers in the waiting room!
mjw364 (7512) 2014-06-23 11:17
Nice panoramic view of the dramatic scenery. Great sky and fantastic mountains - it is so beautiful it makes me want to visit this place.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-07-03 1:28
I loved the previous picture showing the castle but also this one deserves the full attention as the landscape is quite outstanding. The small houses emerging from the green hills and lakes which seem to be on two levels create the view which cannot be easy forgotten.
Well taken from this higher POV with good quality colors and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
PiotrF (10082) 2014-07-07 10:30
a wonderful view of this old town, nice mountain view. Excellent sharpness and the overall technical features. Very nice work!
