LEGO Ideas :: Neuschwanstein Castle

Neuschwanstein is a 19th-century Bavarian palace on a rugged hill near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse. Although public photography of the interior is not permitted, it is the most photographed building in Germany and is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. Today Neuschwanstein is one of the most popular of all the palaces and castles in Europe. Every year 1.3 million people (6,000 per day in the summer!) visit "the castle of the fairy-tale king".

A few weeks ago, inspired by his previous Metal Earth Neuschwanstein Castle (available here) and his sister's 3D Puzzle of this Fairytale Castle (available here), Ranger decided to try and create a micro LEGO version of Neuschwanstein Castle using LEGO from his collection. He amazes me!

He hasn't posted it over at LEGO Ideas yet, but plans to soon.  (You can find his profile here, and vote on his current projects, although it will require you to create a free account and/or log in.) 


Here are the links to some of his past original LEGO creations including:

  2. Bonjour, Je suis Française (nous vivons en Bretagne), maman catholique pratiquant de 4 enfants et je découvre votre blog depuis quelques jours déjà. Merci beaucoup pour toutes vos merveilleuses idées. Ce sont de trésors pour nous. Malheureusement, nous n'avons pas tous les livres que vous avez, ni de matériel semblable au votre pour tout ce qui est de la Foi. Mais je me suis permise de prendre des idées concernant le Carême et Pâques. Encore milles mercis car votre site est une bouffée d'oxygène pour moi. Au plaisir de lire vos articles.

  3. If there is any progress being made on the LEGO Cathedral from last year, I would love to see new photos. My son made a LEGO mission for his 4th grade California mission project. It's amazing to see what these children can create with LEGO.
