Neuschwanstein

The next castle I researched is Neuschwanstein Castle in the South of Germany. This was another top result on google images and I was drawn to it for its unusual and precarious placement.

Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th Century Palace atop a hill in southwest Bavaria. The castle overlooks the village of Hohenschwangau and has an incredible view over the surrounding landscape.

Neuschwanstein Castle appeared in several movies, such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Great Escape and was an inspiration for movies such as Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and TV shows like Merlin (2008).

I chose this castle due to its strategic placement. The castle’s height on the hill gives it an excellent view of the surrounding area and allows any long range weapons a clear shot at attackers. By building so high up, it is nearly impossible to breach this castle. I may use this idea in my build in order to create a castle with a panorama for defensive gameplay.
