As I mentioned previously, I wasn't able to do the tour of the inside of the Castle because of time constraints. This didn't matter, as I had seen this Castle many times on Travel documentaries.

On the outside, I did find some some impressive looking heads staring down at me! [see photo1]
I walked up to the entry gate and passed through the Arch into the courtyard. Here, already, many people were waiting for tours! I walked around in awe of the massive size of this Castle!
I took some photo's and then was on my way.

Once again, if you do the 30 minute tour, NO PHOTO'S ARE ALLOWED INSIDE THE CASTLE
I always find this disappointing, photo's are good for the memory.
I had visited two of other King Ludwig II's castles, and from the book I bought of Newschwanstein, this Castle inside is entirely different to the other two!
