Notes: Neuschwanstein Castle (German: Schloss Neuschwanstein) is a 19th-century Gothic Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Fussen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner.

The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures. Neuschwanstein embodies both the contemporaneous architectural fashion known as castle romanticism (German: Burgenromantik), and Ludwig II’s immoderate enthusiasm for the operas of Richard Wagner.

    I just built that puzzle with my husband and we are missing a piece of the puzzle I want my money back!!!

  2. Janie, I know how frustrating that can be. I know some companies will send you a missing piece (assuming you bought the puzzle new) if you mail them a request and specify which one is missing. Not sure what The Canadian Group’s policy is on that. I have never tried as most puzzles with missing pieces I have are second hand.
