32 Photos that Will Make You Want to Visit Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany

I recently visited the fairytale Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany with my Canon 6D, tripod and Phantom 4 drone. I had a lot of fun and captured the castle and surrounds from quite a few interesting angles you mightn’t have seen before. These shots are all taken in midsummer- the weather was amazing during the day and stormy at night which gave some amazing atmosphere!

Staying right underneath the castle will enable you to get views you can’t get during the day. We had a stormy night and the castle really took on a whole different mood to its gleaming daytime fairytale appearance!
