This famous construction, located in the vicinity of Füssen, Allgäu was built on top of a rugged rock above a deep ravine. The octagonal tower is 76 meters high. The idea for this castle was conceived by King Louis II of Bavaria. "I intend to have the old castle ruins by the Pöllat ravine restored, true to the style of the old German castles in which knights resided." This passage was found in a letter Louis II wrote to his friend Richard Wagner. In the mountains surrounding the castle the King wanted to create an enclave just for himself, allowing him to withdraw and to escape the troubles of everyday life.
Seven weeks behind the death of the king a large audience visited the castle. Every year come 1,3 million people.
