The Castle Neuschwanstein is a neo-romanticist palace built in the 19th Century by King Ludwig II in the Bavarian Alps. With upward of 1.5 million visitors annually, it is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world. During World War II the Nazis used the castle as an art repository, primarily for items stolen from France. After the war American troops removed some 6,000 items from the castle, in most cases shipping them via rail directly to Paris for distribution.
