Does any one know the name of the castle in Europe that Walt Disney used as a model for his Sleeping Beauty castle, and what country it is in?

It's no castle, it's a mansion of the 19th century. It's name is Neuschwanstein and it's situated in Bavaria which is a part of Germany.

That's right! The castle from which the miniature creation of Disney Land has been inspired is "Neuschwanstein" from the southern part of Germany called "Bayern" (usually called Bavaria by foreigners). It is considered to be the most formidable castle by many. It's also got a really outstanding history... as it's been "ordered" by a very controversial king (Louis II), deemed to be mad. You’ve definitely got to check it out if you can!!!

There is another Sleeping Beauty castle on the River Loire, Chateau Usse, with scenes from the story in some of the rooms.

Thanks to all of you for helping me out. Maybe one of the years I'll be able to visit this mansion and all the "real" castles I've thought about.
