The castle of Neuschwanstein, the eccentric fantasy of Luis II of Baviera

The most eccentric of the castles constructed by
Luis II of Baviera, the crazy king, gets up as a medieval fantasy designed by the proper monarch,
who continued on foot of work the project and
captured in him his romantic and lunatic vision
of the world, amen of his love for the operas of Wagner, which inspire in the biggest measurement
his dream decoration.

Hung on top by a steep rock surrounded with forests and abysses, the Castle of Neuschwanstein, with his turrets and his airs of storybook of medieval gentlemen, rises like the most dream and extravagant
of that it will order to construct Luis II of
Baviera or, since it will go on to the history, the crazy king; a dreamer malajusted to his epoch, lover of the architecture and the music, and definitively the monarch most wanted by the Germans.
To something more about one hundred of kilometers of Múnich, nailed in an idyllic scenery wrapped by the Bavarian Alps along with the people of Schwangau, Neuschwanstein, which was in his corrected day of artificial and exotic castle for his eclecticism of
architectural styles, it attracts today more than
one million visitors every year, being erected in, perhaps, the most emblematic monument of the whole Germany.

And as today it seems to be the favorite one of
the visitors, also it it was in his day of this monarch who rose to the throne in 1864 when, on
having died, his father, Maximiliano II, scarcely
was adding 18 years and no experience in the politics. Only five years after his arrival to the power it initiated on the ruins of a previous
castle the works of Neuschwanstein, which apparently
he himself was watching with prismatic some from
the nearby castle of Hohenschwangau, in which he himself lived for years and which constitutes another visit not contemptible at all to realizing in the zone.
