Dreams in Stone – the palace of King Ludwig II of Bavaria: Neuschwanstein (tentative list 2015)⠀ ⠀ Neuschwanstein Castle (1868-1886) is inspired by the operas of Richard Wagner, featuring themes from the composer’s work in various rooms as well as in the building’s outward appearance (Tannhäuser, Tristan, Lohengrin, Parsifal, Der Ring des Nibelungen). ⠀ Together with the spectacular alpine backdrop, it enabled Ludwig II to experience this poetic world in tangible, visual form.⠀ ⠀ The Castle is in the "tentative list" for UNESCO World Heritage since 2015. Who thinks it should be submitted to become an official World Heritage? ⠀ ⠀ #worldheritage #unesco #Neuschwanstein #Neuschwansteincastle #germanytourism #visitHohenschwangau #travelphotography #traveling #germany #unescoworldheritage #top_unesco_photo #photooftheday #picoftheday #world_besttravel #map_of_europe #visitgermany #exploretocreate #passionpassport #travelshoteu #brusselsairlinestravel #roadtrip #bestcityview #mybestcityshots #besteuropephotos #euro_shots#sky_world_amazed #discovergermany#dw_travel#Hohenschwangau ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Abbey and Altenmünster of Lorsch (inscription 1991)⁣ ⁣ Under a clear night sky, the town of Lorsch in Hesse, Germany, hosts the renowned “Königshalle”, one of the very rare buildings from the Carolingian era whose original appearance is intact. It is a reminder of the past grandeur of an abbey founded around 764. The monastery’s zenith was probably in 876 when, at the death of Louis II the German, it became the burial place for the Carolingian kings of the Eastern part of the Frankish Realm.⁣ ⁣ ⁣#worldheritage #unesco #lorsch #HessenTourismus #germanytourism #visitlorsch #travelphotography #traveling #germany #unescoworldheritage #top_unesco_photo #photooftheday #world_besttravel #map_of_europe #visitgermany #exploretocreate #passionpassport #travelshoteu #brusselsairlinestravel #roadtrip #bestcityview #besteuropephotos #euro_shots#sky_world_amazed #discovergermany #abbey #dw_travel #nightphotography#nightscaper
