Devoted Disney fans should not miss a trip to what has become known as the “Disney Castle”: Neuschwanstein Castle in Hohenschwangau. The castle, which was built in the 19th century, was the creation of the megalomaniac King of Bavaria, Ludwig II, who intended the building to realise his dream of a real-life fairytale castle. Walt Disney, who himself had a soft spot for idyllic depictions and pomp, was so impressed by the gigantic property that he incorporated it almost true to life into his next two films, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. He also chose the silhouette of the castle as the logo for his production company and had his own version of Neuschwanstein built in every Disney Park.
The Castle of the Fairytale King in the picturesque Ammer Mountains can be reached in less than 2 hours by hire car or private driver, which the concierge team at The Charles Hotel will be happy to organise for you, together with admission tickets.
