This is one the most renown puzzles ever manufactured by Ravensburger. It is in the top places of most big jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts’ wish lists, but it is extraordinarily rare and difficult to find. The complete title in the box is The Royal Castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, although it is simply known as Neuschwanstein Castle, whose construction was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria.
The Neuschwanstein Castle has been used countless times by many different jigsaw puzzle companies to manufacture puzzles in all sizes, and it seems difficult to find a puzzle fan that doesn’t have at least one version. This 12000 pieces version by Ravensburger, based on a photograph by Bildarchiv Kinkelin, is the largest one. It was manufactured in 1985.
The puzzle is USED and COMPLETE (12144 pieces). It has been assembled once and the pieces are in excellent condition, with no damaged pieces whatsoever. The box is in excellent condition as well, except for a tear in one of the corners, as shown in the pictures. All the original components that came in the box are included.
The pieces have been separated in the 4 original sections, with 3036 pieces in each of the 4 bags. That means that each section of the puzzle can be assembled separately.
It measures 240 x 168 cm. the reference number is 625 5 950 0.
