It was just a small cozy palace! LOL King Ludwig built this one and 2 others, including Neuschwanstein.

Its not really a castle any more only ruin but was once so I guess that counts.

I have quite a lot of castles to choose from, and since I also have to read quite a lot of books, I'm going to honour my home state of Saxony, which has tourist adverts saying it's a "Schlösserland" (land of castles), by picking two castles :).
