The wonderful castles of Bavaria are some of the most famous in the world thanks to their fairytale design, wonderland landscapes and cinematic heritage. Our day today is spent visiting two of the finest, beginning at the glorious Neuschwanstein Castle. One of the most iconic in the world, famously the inspiration for Walt Disney's logo, Neuschwanstein is magnificent building, built into the mountains and standing proudly above the surrounding forests, its turrets and halls a resplendent white against a backdrop of green.
