In early September, Away.com travelers submitted their most inspirational photos of European Destinations. Seven finalists were selected by Away editors and then released to our readers for their own review and ranking. With a final average rating of 4.11 (out of 5), the winning photo was of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany, sent in by Becky Wise of South Carolina. Becky won a $100 VISA gift card toward her next dream vacation! The Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most visited in all of Europe, with nearly 1.3 million people gawking at the massive estate per year. It was built in the 19th century by King Ludwigg II of Bavaria, but legend has it that he spent only 11 nights in his new home before his death. This medieval-style castle is the inspiration for Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom.
