1. Neuschwanstein Castle (also known as “castle of paradox”)
You might have seen this castle in Disney movies or various magazines because it is one of the most photographed castles in the world, but there’s still nothing quite like seeing Germany’s fairy-tale castle in person. Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most visited castles in Germany and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. The Neuschwanstein Castle really looks like a fairy-tale castle. It was built in the 19th century in Bavaria, in a time when castles no longer had strategical and defensive purposes. One of the interesting fact about Neuschwanstein Castle is the designer of the castle was Christian Jank. He was not even an architect but a theatrical designer. The Sleeping Beauty Castle’s design in Disneyland was inspired by Neuschwanstein.
