Neuschwanstein Castle is located in southern Germany, near the Austrian border.

The castle represents for many (including the people that created Disneyland) the classic fairy-tale palace, with its whitewashed exterior and exotic towers.

The nearby town of Füssen im Allgäu is also appealing, with an enchanting town, beautiful mountain setting, and a number of historic buildings.

The surrounding area also includes a number of beautiful lakes.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
