Design and concept
Neuschwanstein embodies both the contemporaneous architectural fashion known as castle romanticism (German: Burgenromantik), and Ludwig II's immoderate enthusiasm for the operas of Richard Wagner.
In the nineteenth century, many castles were constructed or reconstructed; often with significant changes to make them more picturesque. Palace-building projects similar to Neuschwanstein had been undertaken earlier in several of the German states and included Hohenschwangau Castle, Lichtenstein Castle, Hohenzollern Castle, and numerous buildings on the River Rhine such as Stolzenfels Castle.The inspiration for the construction of Neuschwanstein came from two journeys in 1867 — one in May to the reconstructed Wartburg near Eisenach,another in July to the Château de Pierrefonds, which Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was transforming from a ruined castle into a historistic palace.
The king saw both buildings as representatives of a romantic interpretation of the Middle Ages as well as the musical mythology of his friend Richard Wagner. Wagner's operas Tannhäuser and Lohengrin had made a lasting impression on him.
In February 1868, Ludwig's grandfather Ludwig I died, freeing the considerable sums that were previously spent on the abdicated king's appanage.This allowed Ludwig II to start the architectural project of building a private refuge in the familiar landscape far from the capital Munich, so that he could live out his idea of the Middle Ages.

The beautiful castle seem as "rising" from within the forest, green trees from all side's.
The unique towers prominently prevails the sight.
Impressive and yet charming.

What a privilege to be one of the first to comment this capture
Very well taken with the castle framed by vegetation and great POV that let admire this almost unknown side of Neuschwanstein, where the towers can be seen very high in contrast with the sky
Well done, congrast
From where did you take it, the path with the horses carring turists?

Γεια σου Δάνο,
κι αυτή πολύ ωραία με κάθετο κάδρο και τα δέντρα γύρω να αφήνουν ελεύθερο χώρο στο μέσον για να ξεπροβάλει το εντυπωσιακό κάστρο,
ourania (27174) 2014-06-10 11:05
αφού απολαύσαμε τη θέα από μακριά, αυτό το κοντινό πλάνο, ικανοποιεί την επιθυμία να πλησιάσουμε περισσότερο και να εξετάσουμε το μεγαλειώδες κάστρο και τις λεπτομέρειές του από κοντά. Αν και το φως και το φόντο δεν βοηθούσαν, κατάφερες να παρουσιάσεις μια πεντακάθαεη εικόνα, με εξαιρετική οξύτητα και σαφή, ατμοσφαιρικά χρώματα. Η βλάστηση αποτελεί θαυμάσιο κάδρο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

I know I mentioned it before, but as much as I love this castle, I now realise that I have really ever only seen it from the traditional view, so thank you for sharing these beautiful new scenes featuring this fairy tale come to life. Having composed the scene with the castle peeking out above the greenery, it really adds an air of mystery to the place, making her picture even cool to me. Thanks again!
All the best

Δάνο, τωρα ειμαι Βραζιλία και εχουμε μονο 6 ωρες διαφορά αλλά πάλι για μένα το βράδυ η νωρίς το πρωι ειναι καλυτερα για να επισκέπτομαι το ΤΕ...σε δυο μέρες αρχίζει το πρωτάθλημα και δεν ξέρω αν θα ευκαιρώ να μπώ...
εντυπωσιακή και μεγαλοπρεπής η αρχοτεκτονική οπως άλλωστε αρμοζει σε ενα παλατι του 19ου αιώνα...με στοιχεία της εποχής του και με την αδιαφιλονίκητη παρουσία του..
να ειχε και λίγο ηλιο καλα θα ητανε....
αντε καληνυχτα σου

I love this castle, but have only viewed it from a distance, so this close up shot fascinates and delights me. Looks amazing in this superb capture.

Bonne prise de vue de ce château devant ce premier plan malgré ce ciel un peu trop clair à l'arrière plan.
PiotrF (4946) 2014-06-11 13:25
very well captured and greatly framed shot of this castle.
The light is under control and the colours are well exposed. Good work.

Bonsoir, cher Danos,
Très belle présentation de ce château bénéficiant d'une architecture digne d'un conte de fées.
La réalisation est de toute beauté.
Très bonne soirée.
abmdsudi (40226) 2014-06-11 20:50
What a fantastic view of an amazing building to have and an interesting history the castle has. I love architectural details skillfully registered and the colours against the green look great in fairly diffuse lighting. A very beautiful place to be and your shot does justice to its grandeur and majesty. A winner for me, Congrats
fabbs99 (16079) 2014-06-11 23:32
Another superb picture of yours. This is a great picture of the landmark from Germany. The sharpness and light are perfect even in cloudy conditions.TFS.
jmdias (52918) 2014-06-12 1:57
here we have another angle not so usual in the images I have seen from this famous castle. despite the bad light and weather the image is nice. TFS.
Apurba20 (984) 2014-06-12 2:41
This is an imposing building with the minaret looking like it is not going to end. Great architecture and design.
The trees provide a formidable foreground.
TFS. Have a nice day.
adramad (35641) 2014-06-12 7:31
Midplane of this splendid castle, emerging above the trees, with its fabulous facade and decorative turrets.
Magnificent colorful on this day a little cloudy.
Very good lighting and sharpness.
Have a good day.

Hi dear Danos,
This is indeed an interesting and beautiful castle.
The photo is very crisp and even if the weather was not terribly exciting the lighting was quite attractive. A well captured sky with these and overall very soft and pleasant colours.
I like it a lot. TFS and have a nice evening!
imageme (1591) 2014-06-12 17:07
Hi Danos, The back side of this castle is beautiful too. The forest in the FG seems acting as a wall to protect the castle. Great POV along with clarity and details. Thank for sharing. Nice to hear that you are visiting Montreal this August. The weather is very nice in August, not too hot but less outdoor activities than that of in the month of June and July. There still plenty of nice thing to see and to do around Old Montreal area. Hope you like the city and enjoy your trip in Montreal.
mirosu (12676) 2014-06-13 6:27
Another excellent photo of this beautiful Bavarian castle. The view is very well framed by green trees.
The view from lover angle makes the castle majestic and dominant. The light is perfect, the contrast against bright sky superb.
Very well done.
pierrefonds (55250) 2014-06-14 11:44
The trees are framing well the castle. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the castle. The cloudy sky does not hurt the output of the colors. Have a nice day.

Good to have a close up view of the castle with many architectural details to admire. Weather was not so helpful but you manage to have an interesting atmosphere here.
jcpix (11670) 2014-06-14 18:16
I was hoping we would see more views of this most impressive and striking castle, and here it is! There's interest that abounds from every angle, and each one offers its own details and perspective to which we can better understand the true beauty of its grand stature. I like how you've framed this shot, using the trees as a natural base. What else can I say, other than I hope to see many more! :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.
siudzi (32649) 2014-06-15 1:07
Spectacular architecture this! The design of this castle is so unique and beautiful with all its details, towers and impressive surroundings. Very well captured and presented with natural colors and good light. TFS!
Have a nice day!
Didi (55145) 2014-06-15 16:56
Again another view on the castle
It's possible to appreciate the architecture volume
jemaflor (81374) 2014-06-15 23:33
Impressive architecture, well taken and presented with a vertical format and all these trees around, interesting colors contrast.
mkamionka (29425) 2014-06-16 8:48
this castle looks pretty from each side. This is a nice angle too. I like the multiple sharp turrets well visible from this perspective.
Very attractive presentation,
mcmtanyel (10913) 2014-06-16 20:03
I like how the castle seems to rise out of the tree tops. Good framing, well done!
Angshu (54917) 2014-06-24 21:16
Its not often that we see this view of the backside of the famous castle. You have framed well with the foliage and the details are well shown. Though light was not great, you have done a fine job here.
COSTANTINO (51944) 2014-07-23 22:16
Good morning my dear friend
I visited your gallery today and I found
a great collection of valuable photos
with castles and ancient buildings
my opinion is to issue a historical
book with all those fascinating
fotka (3325) 2014-07-29 5:55
I saw many pictures of Neuschwanstein castle but never from that side. Something new for me.
Great frame with green trees for this beauty. Nicely composed with good light, sharpness and interesting note.
swapankumarroy (1112) 2014-08-21 7:50
An extra-ordinary view of the castle surrounded by lush green, very well sharped and good contrast, nice position where you shoot it.
