Neuschwanstein Castle is located in Bavaria on the mountain behind Schwangau Village. It is the castle that is frequently called “Cinderella’s castle” because Disney used it as a model for their movie fantasy. The reality is not like Cinderella at all. It was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria who is known as Mad Ludwig. He lived in the castle only a short time before he was dethroned and sent to a sanatarium where he died mysteriously in a struggle with his therapist.
