Is that one the one in Germany?

It represents the typical image one has of a castle as a child.

Maybe only other German castles could come close to Neuschwanstein.
Let me try...

Castle Karlštejn in the Czech Republic:



I really dislike Neuschwanstein. Granted, the surroundings are nice, the view also...but it is new! It's not authentic! It is a little more than 100 years old. It has electricity in most rooms, heating pipes, tap water...where is the castle feeling in that?!

But I guess the looks are enough to amaze North Americans..

Yes, lack of electricity and tap water do not factor in.

Ahh, just wanted to post this...

It is a castle, and supposedly the largest still intact in the world.

Here is Chateau de Chillon on Lake Geneva:
