Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany: Inspiration for Disneyland

Mad King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle, known as the “Fairytale Castle”, was the main influence for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. Walt Disney just loved it, and it’s easy to see why.

The Marien Brücke (Mary’s Bridge) was closed when we were there, which is why I didn’t get any of the “traditional” shots. However, we did take a shortcut and duck under the off-limits construction gates, in true Leonard Kinsey fashion.
