Seven weeks after death king Ludwigs II. Neuschwanstein was opened fore the public in 1886. The unsociable king had built the castle in order to retire from the public - his Refugium now became the public magnet.
Neuschwanstein belongs today to the most visited castles of Europe. Approximately 1,3 million people every year visit "the castle of the fairy tale king" which was certain only for one inhabitant".
The idyllic situation of Neuschwanstein is unique. However, movements must constantly be checked in the foundation field and the steep cliffs must be secured again and again. Equally attacks the uneven climate the limestone facades strong what again and again requires redevelopment measures.
