Neuschwanstein Castle is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then more than 61 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures.

Grand Hyatt – Taipei, Taiwan
The Grand Hyatt in Taipei looks like a perfectly normal luxury hotel, but the grounds it was built on were once used to torture, execute, and bury political prisoners. As a result, the hotel was plagued with extremely unhappy ghosts wandering the hallways, making noises, and occasionally shaking a guest or two by the leg while they rested in bed. Nothing a little feng shui can’t handle: The Hyatt hired experts to help realign the chi in the hotel and added sacred scrolls to the lobby, which have reportedly helped to combat the flow of middle-of-the-night checkouts from terrified guests.
