Travel Haiku - Neuschwanstein Castle (Germany)


Neuschwanstein Castle
fascinating me
King Ludwig II and his Wagner

Neuschwanstein Castle
King Ludwig II helps us
with the world ofWagner

their spirits still here
King Ludwig II and Wagner
Neuschwanstein Castle

sandwiched within the walls
King Ludwig II playing to
the tune of Wagner

Tour Germany's iconic Neuschwanstein Castle and step into the fantasy world of Bavarian King Ludwig II. Built as a retreat for the reclusive king, the palace's design and themes reflect the ruler's fascination with both medieval castles and with the operas of the famous German composer Richard Wagner; paintings on the castle walls also depict the period tales that influenced Wagner's work.
