Text in English and German. One and a half million visitors per year can't be wrong. For them the royal castle at Neuschwanstein is the pinnacle of every dreamer's architectural fairy-tale. But for the architecturally educated, for adepts of Modernism, this stylistically crude, anachronistic monument to a prince's whim is simply annoying. Admittedly, putting aside all positive or negative prejudice, it is impossible not to count this romantic recreation of a medieval castle on its breath-taking scenic site as one of the most spectacular pioneering buildings of European Historicism.
