A view of Neuschwanstein Castle from near Hohenschwangau.  It was Ludwig II's favorite of his 3 castles, but he only lived here for 170 days.  The palace construction had put a strain on the royal coffers and Ludwig's increasingly erratic behavior led a government commission to dethrone him as king.  Three days later he was found dead.
