Germany's famous Neuschwanstein Castle is being fully renovated for the first time. But it remains open to tourists. That poses a huge logistical challenge, as the castle welcomes several thousand visitors each day.
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.
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.
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.
