Where to stay near Neuschwanstein Castle

Here is the Neuschwanstein Castle floor plan. Disneyland's fairytale castle was inspired by this real castle in Bavaria, Germany. King Ludwig Neuschwanstein's castle was not fully finished at the time of the king's death in 1886. It is 426.5 feet (130 m) long and sits atop a steep 656 feet (200 m) hill! Its main tower is 213 feet (65 m) high. Two hundred workers used 465 tons of Salzburg marble, 4550 tons of sandstone, 400,000 bricks, 600 tons of cement, 50 tons of coal, and 3600 cubic meters of sand!

Lower hall

The walls are decorated with illustrations for the Sigurda saga from the Old Norse Edda saga, a collection of sagas, songs, and sayings. Sigurd corresponds to the Siegfried of the mid-high Germanic Nibelungen. Marble portals lead to the Throne Room on the west side and to the royal chambers on the opposite.

Throne room

This sumptuous, church-like hall with a massive four-meter chandelier occupies the third and fourth floors and the entire western part of the Palace.

Dining room

Ludwig II's chambers can be accessed through an oak-paneled hallway on the third floor. In 1885, an electric bell was installed here so that the attendant on duty could be called from any other room.


As in all residences of Ludwig II, the king's bedroom on a Neuschwanstein Castle blueprints is especially luxurious. The leitmotif is the legend of Tristan and Isolde, and the two main characters appear not only in frescoes but also in carvings on the door and ceramic figures on the tiled stove.


The chapel adjacent to the bedroom is also neo-Gothic. The frescoes, glass windows, and the middle painting on the altar depict Louis IX of France, the patron saint of the king. There was another connection between Ludwig II and the ruling Bourbon family, and to be specific, King Louis XVI - a direct descendant of Louis IX - was the godfather of his grandfather, King Ludwig I.


The dressing room is decorated in the style of a garden hall with an illusionistic painting of the ceiling of a garden gazebo with a grate of vines open to the sky.


The L-shaped salon on the floor plan of Neuschwanstein Castle has a niche furnished with chairs and separated from the rest of the room by columns. The large oak wardrobe is modeled on furniture from Wartburg and is decorated with scenes from medieval poems.

Grotto and greenhouse

Between the living room and the study is a room that is not usually found in a royal suite: a small grotto. Set designer August Dirigl created an artificial dripstone cave that originally had colored lighting and a waterfall. It was based on an idea by Gerselberg from the Tannhäuser saga.


The frescoes depict the Tannhäuser saga. As in the opera of the same name, it is associated with the Singing Competition in Wartburg.


The oak-paneled front or adjutant room has a table, chairs, and a tiled stove, as well as a coach for the servant who awaits the king at night.
