27. Sleeping Beauty Castle is based largely on “Mad King” Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, but with one big difference: The top is on backward. Disney didn’t want it to look too much like the real thing.
The original is a true masterpiece....

I was there in 1985 and we did the tour. It was beautiful! We decided to forgo the bus ride and walk up the trail to the castle, which was awesome, but I was in pretty good physical shape back then! Will never forget it.

When I saw the Newschwanstein it was winter. The clouds obscured the castle. Suddenly they opened a bit, and there was the castle, looking like it was floating on clouds.
What a beautiful sight!
