The Neuschwanstein Castle is not great because of its ability to stand the test of time, it is great due to it being funded and built in relatively modern times, the latter half of the 1800s to be precise. The funding came from Ludwig the second out of his personal fortune and through extensive loans. This palace castle can see as many as 6000 people a day in the summer months now as a tourist attraction. It has famous architecture used as the inspiration behind Disney’s sleeping beauty castle, so when most modern people think of castles this is the castle design they imagine.
The Spangenberg Castle has been many things in its lifetime of about 700 years. It has been a protector of important trade routes, home to robber barons, home to a forestry school, prison, important artifacts, a hunting lodge and now a bed a breakfast. The fact that this castle has stood functional for over 700 years is greatness in its own right but such an adaptive and important history piece really calls attention to its greatness.
