Royal Castles in the Bavarian Alps

1,403 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Füssen, Bavaria, Germany

The picture was taken in spring above the Forggensee in the Allgäu Alps (Germany) where i live. The reservoir is known for its color: magical light blue-turquoise to jade green. It owes this to two factors: on the one hand, the high content of minerals in the water, which the river dissolves from its stones, and on the other hand, the low water temperature. The foreground consisting of dandelion is typical of the region.

The real reason for most visitors, however, are the royal castles on the left (closeup) Neuschwanstein and the right Hohenschwangau (closeup) near the historic city of Füssen.

Neuschwanstein is often referred to as a fairytale castle. It is the most famous of the castles of King Ludwig II and one of the most famous sights in Germany. It is considered a symbol of the time of Romanticism and is known worldwide. In American advertising, it is the most used castle motif.

The castle was the model for several buildings around the world, especially for the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. The Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris was also modelled on the Bavarian "fairytale castle". The same applies to the Excalibur Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
