Schwangau, Germany

Cows grazing in Bavaria, Schloss Neuschwanstein in the background.


A little something different from me. Hope you like it.


Coming to Bavaria, I already knew that this famous castle is under renovation. From this POV, the castle looks fine, but from the other side (view from Marienbrucke), it's all covered with scaffolding. I think I spent more time and had more fun with the cows than the castle. This scene right here is very typical Bavaria.


Neuschwanstein castle is a 19th-century Bavarian palace on a rugged hill near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse. Although public photography of the interior is not permitted, it is the most photographed building in Germany and is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations.
