Neuschwanstein Castle is on a small mountain peak in the suburbs of Fussen, a small town on the southern border of Germany. It has a fairy-tale appearance, with a blend of beautiful scenery. Its interior decoration is sumptuous. Inspired by the musical "Swan Knight," the Bavarian King Ludwig II took many years to build it.

Neuschwanstein Castle (German: Schloss Neuschwanstein, pronounced Southern Bavarian: Schloss Neischwanstoa) is a 19th-century historicist palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and in honour of Richard Wagner. Ludwig chose to pay for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds. Construction began in 1869, but was never fully completed.

Built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, this fairytale-like castle and its striking setting makes for a magical experience. In fact, there have long been rumors that it served as inspiration for a few Disney princess castles. Due to the castle's popularity, it's best to reserve your tickets far in advance, as the site is one of the most visited attractions in the world, especially during the summer. After touring the castle, take a walk (if you dare) across the sky-high Marienbrücke, a narrow bridge suspended over the plunging Pollät gorge.
The hilltop Schloss Neuschwanstein was home to young King Ludwig II of Bavaria, who ascended to the throne full of dreams for his kingdom, lost power to the Prussians, retreated to several fantasy palaces and became so isolated that he was declared insane in 1886. The lavish, white fairy-tale palace welcomes more than 1.4 million curious visitors annually and is said to be Walt Disney’s inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland.

🚌How to get there:
I read a lot of traffic guides on the Internet, because I was taking my parents to travel. In order to save worry and effort, I finally chose a local one-day tour group, including the 3 attractions of Neuschwanstein Castle + Linderhof Castle + Oberammergau.
The coach is very comfortable, and the guide's explanation will give us a deeper understanding of the culture here. Forget it plus the entrance fee, it's about the same as traveling by car, $50 per person, recommended!
