So, have you heard people recommend you to go to Cinderella Castle in Germany? Surely, its name itself draws your attention at your first hearing it, right? This castle is one of the greatest castles in Europe and actually goes with the name “Neuschwanstein Castle”. Sometimes, people call it Cinderella Castle of Germany because Neuschwanstein is the inspiration for Cinderella’s castle in Walt Disney World. Let’s know more about it before you go travel there to witness it yourself.

The Background of Neuschwanstein Castle

Cinderella’s castle does resemble this so-called Cinderella Castle Germany a lot. It is a castle that was commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Well, the name of this castle is actually not given by the king himself. It was even given after the king’s death, although King Ludwig always referred to it as the New Hohenschwangau Castle. Back when King Ludwig was still a prince, he was forced to ascend to the throne before he was even 20.

At that time, the young king was known for its troubled personality. He chose to immerse himself in the fantasy world, instead of taking care of her failures as a king. From his obsession of fairytale castle building, Neuschwanstein Castle was ordered to be built by him. He used all his fortune to build it, but eventually incurred heavy debts later after that. This Cinderella Castle Germany remains unfinished until now because of financial difficulties.

Speaking about the design of Germany’s Cinderella Castle, you should have imagined that it is a huge, tall, luxurious castle with fairytale design. Its construction began on September 5, 1869 and run into a heavy debt around 1885. The construction was stopped and now remains as it was at that time with bare brick rooms inaccessible in the second floor. Actually, the plan was that there would be around 200 rooms in this Cinderella Castle Germany.

Even so, the finished ones are only 14 eventually. Other interior design of this Cinderella Castle Germany is a grotto, Disney-esque passageway decorated with artificial rocks and flowing waterfalls along the corridor of the castle. You can say it is a theme-part interior. You will also find theater, opera, and the works of Wagner central to the castle. Not to mention, the interior walls are designed with murals from the legends of Wagner’s operas. It sure is a great castle to visit for your traveling plan.
