How to build a real fantasy castle

What do you need to build a real fantasy castle?
Madness, imagination and a royal fortune…

On November 1st I shared a blog article with you “On location in the Kingdom of Valendo” with pictures and a video of a unique waterfall in the Jungfrau region of Switzerland that inspired locations in The General’s Legacy. The article was popular. I promised a follow up article about Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria that inspired Dendra Castle in The General’s Legacy. Disney also based the design of the Cinderella Castle on Neuschwanstein and some others.

Neuschwanstein was build in the late 1800s as a palace by King Ludwig II of Bavaria – a pure flight of fantasy since castles have been almost pointless for military purposes since the invention of the canon.

I’ll hand over to Fred Mills of the youtube channel The B1M to tell you this tale of fantasy construction and deadly conspiracy!


Up close and personal – Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau from youtube channel Amazing Places on Our Planet.


Now take a horse drawn tour of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau in this next video from youtube channel NorthValleyArtStudio.
