It is located across the hill from Neuschwanstein Castle and is adjacent to the city of Fussen. Gossau Castle is a gem of German Romanticism. It was ushered in its great period after its completion in the 12th century and became the central theme of the court's lyric poetry. The sun shines on the banks of the Lech River, but the red houses at the foot of the mountain are conspicuous. Standing in front of the ancient church, staring at history.
