Neuschwanstein: Maddeningly beautiful

Neuschwanstein: Maddeningly beautiful

It’s the perfect castle nestled deep within the bowels of the German Alps and it makes for a picture perfect postcard. Clouds swirling all around, they part like curtains would to reveal a star and what you then see is Neuschwanstein castle; it is (was) the awe spectacular retreat of the ruler they called "fairy-tale king," Ludwig II of Bavaria.
