I heard the castle in Disney land was designed after a real castle. Which one? Sleeping Beauty’s castle in Disneyland is definitely designed after a real castle. Neuschwanstein Castle, which translates to mean New Swan Stone, is located in Southern Germany. in Bavaria. Neuschwanstein castle is one of the most photographed castles in the world. Set on a high rocky hill Neuschwanstein is the picture of the idyllic fairy tale type castle. It’s no wonder that Disney decided to mimic the castle in the design of its own fantasyland creation. Neuschwanstein was built in the 1800s by King Ludwig II. His intention was to rebuild a new castle on a site where previous knight’s castle had once stood. It was originally called New Hohenschwangau Castle, but was renamed after King Ludwig II died. The king who was declared insane left behind a legacy in beautiful structures that he commissioned to have built. What once may have been seen as needless spending became part of the German culture. Neuschwanstein is a huge draw for tourists. If you ever get a chance to go visit the castle, it is an amazing piece of architecture that is very worth the visit. The location alone is inspiring and breathtaking. Although Disneyland designed its castles after Neuschawnstein, the ones in Disneyland and Disney world are nowhere near as complex or incredibly detailed as the castle they’re designed after. The original Neuschawnstein is filled with ornate rooms, amazing furniture and incredible details. Mama Nono
