    It was also the castle used in the Dick Van Dike 1968 blockbuster masterpiece Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, based on the book of the same name by Ian Fleming, who also dabbled in spy novels.

    Imagine being an architect in that era. Just like hand drawing in some shit and hoping it stays clutched to the mountainside. Meanwhile knowing this Lord or King or whatever will probably disembowel your whole family and put you up on pikes to frighten the local peasants if anything falls over.

    Went in 2013 with my school group from USA, was under construction at the time but still gorgeous. Apparently this castle’s construction caused Bovaria to go bankrupt

    A different picture of this castle is hanging above my desk RIGHT NOW! It’s a cool castle.

    Made by King Ludwig II in honor of Richard Wagnor, of whom he was a gigantic fan and patron. It was so cool his ministers used its unbelievable coolness to get him declared insane and deposed.

    By German standards this is a very modern castle, as construction wasn’t started until 1869. Berg Eltz, for example, was started in the 9th century, 1000 years before Neuschwanstein.

    It’s also completely empty on the inside.

    The town at the base of the castle is just tourism hell.
    It’s full of buses, everything is expensive and pre-COVID it was ridiculously overcrowded
