Neuschwanstein uncovered …

The scaffolding is finally removed from Neuschwanstein Castle.

The fairytale is more believable without the scaffolding.

As of this week, Neuschwanstein Castle is completely free of scaffolding for the first time in 10 years. The maintenance and cleaning work of the past decade is now finally complete. The authorities did their best to keep the scaffolding as discreet and unobtrusive as possible, with only specific sections covered at any one time. But still, it’s nice to be able to see King Ludwig’s Wagnerian fantasy in stone unveiled in its full glory, exactly as he intended it to be seen.

Except that he didn’t intend it to be seen by anyone other than himself. But that’s another post.
