Two artistic interpretations of Neuschwanstein Castle


Neuschwanstein Castle (Schloss Neuschwanstein) in Bavaria, Germany, is certainly one of the most famous and iconic castles in the world. And, as such, it is featured widely in photographs, illustrations and other works of art.

Shown above is an undated Palette postcard featuring an artist's rendering of the palace.1

And shown below is a photo of Lego Neuschwanstein that I took Sunday at the Reading Public Museum's marvelous LEGO Castle Adventure exhibit. Sarah is a serious fan of Legos (as was I at her age), which is a hobby we certainly don't mind encouraging.2

The Lego exhibit was jaw-dropping and interactive and is highly recommended.


Footnotes
1. The small type on the back of the postcard states: "Alpiner Fotokarten - Verlag Herm. Wisberger, Krun b.Mittenwald. Nachdruck verboten." By the way, "nachdruck verboten" translates to "reproduction prohibited," so I guess it's possible I might be in trouble here.
