Description of Hohenschwangau Castle

Hohenschwangau Castle was first mention in the chronicles of the 12th century. However through its long history and numerous conflicts the castle feel in disrepair and was eventually abandoned. Maximilian II of Bavaria found the ruins of the old citadel and rebuilt the castle in neo- Gothic style. His son, future king Ludwig II grew up here and later build a Neuschwanstein just few miles from Hohenschwangau. Both castles add a sense of fairytale to this beautiful landscape.
