Neuschwanstein Castle

Miguel Angel Victoria Fotógrafo

Born under the order of the Mad King at a time when castles and fortresses were no longer needed, the Neuschwanstein Castle is a dreamlike building surrounded by a beautiful landscape, which makes up one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany.

The ambitious project of Ludwig II of Bavaria began to take shape in 1869 with the commissioning of the design of the castle to a theatrical set designer who, according to the ideas of the king, projected a more aesthetic than functional space.

The ambitious project of Ludwig II of Bavaria began to take shape in 1869 with the commissioning of the design of the castle to a theatrical set designer who, according to the ideas of the king, projected a more aesthetic than functional space.
Despite the medieval aspect with which the castle was built, it incorporated numerous modernities for the time.
It had central heating with hot air, electric light, hot and cold running water, automatic drains and even a telephone line.
Neuschwanstein is a construction that reflects the ideals and yearnings of King Ludwig II.
Built as an imaginary and poetic world in which he could take refuge and dream, the castle has paintings inspired by the operas of Richard Wagner, whom the king admired to unsuspected limits.
The castle has 200 rooms among which striking rooms stand out as the Throne Room, with 13 meters high, the Hall of the Singers, which despite its large size and its stage was not dedicated to host parties of the court, or the king’s bedroom and the chapel, made in neo-Gothic style.

The Neuschwanstein Castle is a wonderful dream construction that inspired Walt Disney himself to create the castle of the Sleeping Beauty.

Known worldwide as a symbol of idealized romantic architecture and the peculiar history of its owner, the Neuschwanstein Castle is a wonderful dream construction that inspired Walt Disney himself to create the castle of the Sleeping Beauty.
Open to the public since 1886, just a few weeks after the king’s death, the castle currently receives about 10,000 visitors a day in high season, reaching more than 1.4 million visitors a year.
The castle is located just 130 kilometers from Munich, making it an ideal place to visit on a day trip.
How to get to Neuschwanstein Castle from Munich
Excursion in Spanish: The most comfortable and easiest way to get to the Neuschwanstein Castle. For € 54 per person includes transportation and Spanish speaking guide throughout the day.
Public transport: A slow and uncomfortable option, since you will have to make several transshipments.
The first step is to take the train to Füssen.
Once there you will have to take bus number 73 (direction Steingaden / Garmisch-Partenkirchen) or number 78 (direction Schwangau), being the destination stop Hohenschwangau / Alpseestraße.
From this stop you can walk 30 minutes to the castle or take a horse carriage.
Rental car: If you want to drive and do not mind renting a car, it’s 130 kilometers that separate Munich from Neuschwanstein.

How was this Virtual Tour made

The equipment used to perform virtual tour are the following:

  • Nikon D810 DSLR Camera
  • Lens Sigma 8 mm Fisheye
  • Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head
  • Manfrotto 190 Carbon Fiber Tripod
  • Remote Switch

The software processing of the image was

  • Lightroom to process RAW files
  • PTGui for stitching images
  • Photoshop general and local settings
  • PanoTour Pro for generating virtual tour
To achieve more clarity in the images, for some time I have carried out some “Good Practices” that have worked for me and that I highly recommend:
To make spherical photography I usually do it using a tripod of very good quality of Manfrotto brand.
I use a remote shutter release to operate the shutter of the camera and thus not transfer vibrations to the camera.
If the target you are using has a stabilizer … turn it off.
They are designed to compensate for movement and the fact that the camera is completely static by the use of triple, can interfere with the stabilizer and cause it to transmit vibrations to the camera.
Avoid touching the camera or the tripod while you are taking the photo and especially watch that you do not touch it, for example, the tape of the camera. The effect of the wind can cause the tape to hit the tripod and vibrations are transferred there.
In photographs of very little light, I lift the mirror blocking it to avoid vibrations.
Finally, I recommend never focusing on infinity, but focus on the hyperfocal distance of the lens you are using.
In Photopills there is a hyperfocal table that is very useful.
