Ludwig II - in short - a dreamy king figure, strongly influenced by medieval sagas, Arthurian legends and Wagner’s opus, created a 5.000m2 recluse where he could live in his own reality.
He built the Neuschwanstein Castle - a romanesque revival architectural masterpiece. It’s walls, from the lower halls to the ceilings of the upmost floor are decorated with murals telling all those stories that helped him escape the mundane reality he detested.
I’ve never seen the inside!!
The days we went to the Alps were by far my favorite part of the trip! Honestly, the view was breathtaking and to say you hiked the alps is pretty cool, too! Am I right?!
Mah friend saw the Schloss!

This might be the first Neuschwanstein photo I’ve seen on tumblr without snow. And this is really freaking nice, so it should go snow-less more often.
