Historical tourism: Neuschwanstein Castle Tour

History

The Neuschwanstein Castle Tour offers an extraordinary visit to a German castle called Neuschwanstein. Is an elaborate castle near Füssen, Germany. It was built on the top of a rock ledge and over the Pöllat Gorge town within the mountain range of the Bavarian Alps. It is better reproduction of a medieval-style court in line together with his fairy-tale vision of monarchy. Architecture and painter Christian Jank did the Moresque designs, which translated into Eduard Riedel’s architectural plans, eventually into this castle. In 1874 the chief architecture was changed by order of the king to be replaced by another chief mason who was more experienced.

Neuschwanstein stands on two more small castles, which cleared away the ruins of which in 1868. The king did the foundation stone for Neuschwanstein in September 1869, and work got started. Although Louis assumed the whole design to be built within three years, only the gateway structure was inhabitable by 1873. The completion ceremony was changed to January 29, 1880, but even then, the castle was still under construction, and a lot of work had to be done. 

The technical fittings were completed some four and a half years later, and therefore the court remained incomplete in 1886 when Louis died by drowning himself. He had lived there, off and on, just some six months in total. Several weeks after his death, the incomplete palace was presented to the ordinary people as a museum. The castle wasn’t built as rapidly because the king expected it. The project was too comprehensive, and therefore it becomes vacant. 

However, it became a residency for many masons and workers before becoming a residency for the king because it was too much of a sad palace because of the previous king’s death and said to be possessed by the soul of the king himself for years. The topping-out ceremony for the Palas wasn’t until 1880. The king moved in in 1884.
