Here is a series of photos from the Hohenschwangau Castle located in the town of Hohenschwangau in the south of Germany near the town of Fussen, Germany.  This is the castle that sits right next to the ‘Disneyland’ Castle and was the one that came first.  There are no photos of the inside (not allowed), but the exterior of the building is amazing.
