Hohenschwangau Castle also known as Schloss Hohenschwangau is a 19th-century palace which is the less popular sister of Neuschwanstein Castle in southern Germany. It is located in the German village of Hohenschwangau near the town of Füssen, part of the county of Ostallgäu in southwestern Bavaria, Germany. Schloss Hohenschwangau is situated slightly to the south of Neuschwanstein on a small hill between the Alpsee and Schwansee. It was the childhood residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria and was built by his father, King Maximilian II of Bavaria. The castle of Hohenschwangau was rebuilt and designed by Ludwig’s father Maximillian II, it replaced an old ruin in a wonderful location. Hohenschwangau Castle is now in the hands of a state foundation set up to administer the property of the former Bavarian ruling house. The castle can be visited on its own, or as part of a combined visit (and ticket) with Neuschwanstein.
