Neuschwanstein Castle, DE

Commissioned and built (but never fully completed) in 1892 for King Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner, this castle in southwest Bavaria was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle. It is magnificent. Emily and I had the opportunity to take the castle tour and see all of the finished rooms and it was amazing. The 'Hall of the Singers' and the small conservatory built into the false grotto were my favourites.
