Castle Neuschwanstein, Germany

This great card showing Castle Neuschwanstein was sent to me by my friends Heike and Marcus Klein.
The castle is located on a rugged hill near Füssen in Bavaria. It was built in the late 19th century by Bavarian King Ludwig II as a retreat and hommage to composer Richard Wagner. The king paid for the construction out of his own funds instead of using money coming from taxes. He had to borrow quite a sum of money to finish the castle.
It is one of the main tourist sites in Germany.
