10Neuschwanstein Castle

Located in the Bavarian Alps, Neuschwanstein Castle is the epitome of a fairytale castle. Commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, this 19th-century castle boasts spires, turrets, and stunning architecture.

The interior is equally impressive, with lavish rooms inspired by Wagnerian opera. Perched on a hill overlooking the Hohenschwangau Valley, the castle’s picturesque setting adds to its magical aura. It’s no wonder that Neuschwanstein Castle served as the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle.
