Schwangau is home to one of Europe’s most popular and picturesque attractions. Framed by majestic mountains and glittering lakes, the provincial town is a postcard picture of provincial perfection. Enjoying a serene situation upon the renowned Romantic Road, this quaint and quintessential village oozes antique charm and cultural charisma; steeped in the ancient traditions of the past, Schwangau promises to appease those with an insatiable appetite for authenticity.
With its talismanic turrets, granite sloped roofs and glimmering whi8te façade, the Neuschwanstein Castle truly captures the essence of fairy tale fantasies. The Walt Disney castle is reputed to have been based on this stunning structure. Built by the demented King Ludwig during the 18th century, the castle’s superficial beauty is enhanced by its majestic mountain setting. Ensure you brave the veritignous suspension bridge that towers over the rushing waterfall below for some phenomenal photography opportunities.
Less known and therefore frequented is the Hohenschwangau, an appealingly alternative castle whose luscious lakeside location and lesser status results in a serene sojourn. A grand Gothic façade is complimented by seemingly interminable turrets, all of which is enhanced by the luscious lakeside location of the structure.
Enjoy a decadent and delightful dining experience at the elegant and exquisite Rubezahl Restaurant. Boasting a prime position overlooking the Neuschwanstein Castle, the eatery serves perfectly presented and locally sourced meals from an internationally inspired and innovative menu. Carefully selected wines perfectly accompany your gastronomic delight, resulting in an unforgettable dinner. (Am Ehberg 31, 87645, Schwangau, Germany)
