There are two amazing halls that can be found within the Neuschwanstein Castle. The largest of these two halls is known as Singers’ Hall and it is modeled after the main hall found in Wartburg Castle.

Neuschwanstein Castle also features a two-story tall throne room. With a ceiling that is more than 15 meters tall, there are two galleries that encircle the throne room on separate floors. The entire room is adorned with gold and blue decorations. Needless to say, the throne room is one of the most popular sites within the Castle.

However, the absolute most popular part within Neuschwanstein Castle is the Hall of the Holy Grail. After Ludwig lost his throne, he became infatuated with myths and legends. The Holy Grail was one of his infatuations.
