With around 1.4 million visitors per year, Neuschwanstein is one of the main tourist attractions in all of Europe. The king lived only a few months in the castle. His early death in the vicinity of Berg am Starnberger See on June 13, 1886 is shrouded in many myths and stories. The castle is recognized worldwide as a symbol of the Romantic period. For example, it was used as a model for the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland and many artists such as Andy Warhol and Luchino Visconti were inspired by the fairy tale castle.
