Located near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in Bavaria, the castle was built in the 19th century by Ludwig II, King of Bavaria. Based on the late Romanesque period of the early 13th century, the castle stands 3,306 feet above sea level. Neuschwanstein was designed by Christian Junk, a theater designer rather than an architect. Its fairytale looks are thought to be the inspiration behind Disney’s theme park castles. The Romanesque touches are obvious in the details of this tapestry, from the round arched portals to the positioning of the bay windows and pinnacles. Neuschwanstein was the name of the castle of the Swan knight in Richard Wagner’s Lohengrin. King Ludwig had the castle built in homage to Wagner. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
