10. Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
The Neuschwanstein castle in Germany is considered to be one of the most visited places in the country. It’s one of the most scenic places in Europe as a whole. More than 1.3 million tourists visit the castle on a daily basis. The word Neuschwansetin translates to New Swan Stone in English.
The castle was built to be a home for King Ludwig II of Bavaria in1886. He wanted to live out a fantasy and use the Neuschwanstein castle as a retreat for himself. He wanted it to look like a recreation of the castle where he spent his childhood. Originally, the castle was supposed to have about 200 rooms built. However, due to the fact that the funds were cut, only about a dozen of them were finished. Sadly, King Ludwig II never got to see it completed as he died a few years before the final towers were built. After his passing, the castle was opened to the public even though the king never intended for it to be accessible to the public.
The popularity of the Neuschwanstein castle is due to its fairytale appearance that attracts tourists from around the world. It is said that the castle was used as an inspiration for the Disney movie Cinderella in 1950. In addition, it was also an inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty castle that is built-in Disney Land, California.
