Schloss Hohenschwangou

The "orange" castle, or Hohenschwangou. Matt spent the better part of this day being entertained by my efforts to pronounce the name correctly.

This was the castle in which King Ludwig II grew up. 

The entire fountain was supported all the way around by lions. 

There were swans aplenty as well. They were associated with the area and so were integrated into the castle design, even down to swan chandeliers and door handles.
