Wordless Wednesday: Castle or Palace?

Hohenzollern Castle: never used as fortress, but built where former castles WERE
Everybody's Favorite Fairy Tale Castle, Newschwanstein, a mad king's fantasy

Sure is pretty, though, inside and out. 

Castle on the Right, village on the left/middle, and a lake to the "more right."

And here is a snap of the nearby Bavarian countryside, as always on this site, the photo is from the summer of 1976  

These castles are relatively close - we saw them on the same day.
As always, Wikipedia has good basic information if you'd like a bit more on these places.  Also, here are two blogs which compare these two.
