Show us something pretty!

Commentary: 'Darling, I'm just going to step into this little nook in my insanely outlandish, yet strangely beautiful castle.' 'Oh, all right.'

The person who dreamed this castle up was popularly called the Fairy Tale King, the Swan King - and the Mad King of Bavaria. But you were probably guessing something along those lines, anyway...

Whether it's your point of view that this fellow, Ludwig II, was a misunderstood dreamer or shy eccentric, or a madman with an expensive hobby - NICE CASTLE!
