Bavaria’s legendary Neuschwanstein Castle is currently undergoing elaborate restoration work. For those tasked with the job, restoring the edifice to its former glory is an absolute privilege.
The Neuschwanstein Castle, built by Ludwig II. the fairytale king, remains the biggest tourist magnet in Bavaria. The Würzburg Residence and the Imperial Castle of Nuremberg are also popular with visitors.
Neuschwanstein is not only located in Bavaria; its brand now also belongs to the southern German state. The top EU court ruled that Bavaria can trademark the castle's name, much to the dismay of the souvenir industry.
Who had Neuschwanstein Castle built? How high is the Zugspitze and what can you hear every day on Munich's Marienplatz square? Test your knowledge of the Free State of Bavaria.
Bavaria captivates tourists with its rustic traditions, royal palaces, and, of course, the Alps.
