Is this fairytale castle the inspiration for Hogwarts?

If it wasn't, it might as well have been. I think it might have been the inspiration for the movies' set designers, if not for J.K. Rowling. At any rate, it's the 125th anniversary of the death of artistic but oddball King Ludwig II, who built Neuschwanstein Castle in the Bavarian Alps. Check out the great photos in this piece from The Altantic. (No, this is not a paid endorsement, and no, I don't have stock in the company, in case you're wondering.)
