Neuschwanstein Castle Presentation
Transcript of Neuschwanstein Castle Presentation
New (neu) - shwan (schwan) - stine (stein). It simply means, '' New Swan Stone Castle" General Knowledge The Neuschwanstein Castle was built during the 1869-1892 period. This majestic castle was made for the King Ludwig II, who was a very shy king. His castle provided him an escape from the outside world. Just like Ludwig's father, Ludwig made the Neuschwanstein Castle out of ruins. In fact, this castle was named Neuschwanstein weeks after Ludwig died. It was originally called "Neue Burg Hohenschwangau", meaning "New Castle Hohenschwangau" because the new castle was being made from the ruins of the Hohenschwangau Castle. The Neuschwanstein Castle was inspired by Ludwig's close friend, Richard Wagner. No one in particular lived in this castle besides Ludwig, and when he died, it was and is still used as a tourist attraction. Location Located near Fussen in southwest Bavaria Germany, this castle is surrounded by beautiful forests, mountains, lakes, and villages. (This is where the castle is on the map) (In this picture, you can see the mountains and lakes surrounding the castle; may be a bit blurry) Please keep your arms and legs inside your chair....
