Photo of the Week: Fairy Tale Castle in the Fog

In the Photo of the Week feature, we highlight an exceptionally amazing photograph submitted by an Atlas Obscura user.

This fairy tale photograph looks like it might have been taken at Disneyland, but this pic is of the very real Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau, Germany. The prototypical fortress was captured by Atlas user Andie who had this to say about the magical view:

“Most photos of Neuschwanstein look light and Disney-esque, but the fog and changing leaves during my visit seemed to highlight the dual nature of the castle: whimsically beautiful and yet forever tainted by accusations of madness and suspicious deaths.”
