Swans are ubiquitous in Switzerland and southern Germany. Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are both named for the beautiful birds. Although they can fly, swans are more well-known for their beauty and grace in the water. The first picture is at Lake Lucerne in Switzerland. The fountain is at Hohenschwangau in Germany.

When King Ludwig II of Bavaria inherited the throne in 1864, Bavaria was no longer an imperial monarchy, but was now a constitutional monarchy where the king had very little power. In spite of this restraint (or possibly because of it), Ludwig ignored the needs of his country and spent all of his time and most of the national coffers on building elaborate and beautifully fanciful castles. The only one that was completed before he died in 1886 (under very mysterious circumstances) was Linderhof Castle. It’s a miniature remake of the Palace at Versailles in France, including many similar rooms and extended gardens. Pictures of the inside of the castle is not aloud, but you can image how ornate and extravagant it is by looking at the exterior (and yes, that is a gold-leafed statue in the middle of the pool).

If you look close (or maybe not so closely) at the top of the very dense forest, you can see the tower of the Ehrenberg Castle ruin. Below is a picture of the full castle, so you can tell just how dense the forest is when looking at it from the foot of the hill where it dwells.
