Viewing platform for Neuschwanstein castle

I know, Neuschwanstein is not really a castle (it’s a Schloss…palace), but for the sake of people googling it, I decided to leave “castle” in the title, although it is incorrect.

Neushwanstein palace, one of my favorite tours to give, is always throwing curve-balls at us tour guides. The most recent one is the construction of a viewing platform for the front of the palace. You see, one of the things that makes taking a tour rather than going by yourself worth while is that we show you all the best photo ops, most of which you’re unlikely to just randomly get. One of these slightly off-course great photo ops that makes tours worth it is soon to be obvious as all hell, and it is sad to see (from my standpoint). They’re building a platform so that everyone walking past knows full well they should walk over and take a picture. If I were the palace administrator I’d probably have built the platform years ago.

Anyways, here’s some pics of the construction…these were taken a couple weeks ago:

Here’s a more recent pic from last friday taken out of the window of Neuschwanstein, looking down at Schloss Hohenschwangau (palace high swan region) and the alp lake:
