The evening twilight fades in to darkness when stars of constellation Orion, the Hunter, stand above the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany (the name means New Swan Stone Castle). Click on the star-pattern icon above the image to see a close-up view of the castle in a spectacular foreground of Alps. The palace was built in the 19th-century, commissioned by king Ludwig II, on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria. The iconic palace was an inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and later similar structures in the world. Babak Tafreshi/
