Germany is almost covered with castles, and a lot of them are open to visitors. I visited quite a few on a vacation some years ago.
Neuschwanstein surely is a picturesque place, but not the most authentic of castles.
King Ludwig, the king behind the creation of the castle was quite a big spender, actually the rumour is,
that he was drowned for that very reason.
If any af you are visiting Bayern, don't miss Ludwig's version of the french
Versailles - Schloss Herrenchiemsee. It's located on a small island in Chiemsee,
and you get there by ferry - amazing place! :smile:
