N is for New Swanstone Castle, Germany

For letter "N" --
Direct Swap, Sender: Mark Winchester
Sent: 27 Jul 2012 from Ostfildern, Germany

New Swanstone Castle or Neuschwanstein in German is famous for being the prototype of the castle in Disney's Sleeping Beauty. The sender of the postcard wrote:

Schloss Neuschwanstein, built for the "mad king Ludwig of Bavaria". 
He had 4 castles built, each one better than the last. 

Thanks to his obsession for romantic beauty though! Now Germany has this structure that drives in a lot of tourism for that part of the country.



  1. Hi Maria .. what a great N ... and the romance you can see in the Schloss Neuschwantein does make us realise why Disney created his ideas from these ... lovely photo - cheers Hilary

  2. What a gorgeous postcard! I have been to Germany several times, but never there - I'd love to go. Anabel's Travel Blog

  3. Hi Maria, Wow, the New Swanstone Castle looks magical for sure. I would love to see that place in person. Have a fine day and thank you for sharing your postcards!
