Castle Neuschwanstein - innovative solar street lighting from photinus

Innovation and attractive design come together in the merkur300 solar light from photinus. The merkur300 superbly illuminates the driveway to the castle Neuschwanstein, installed in 2015.

Over 1.5 million people from all over the world visit "the castle of King Ludwig II" every year, making Neuschwanstein one of the most visited castles in Europe and this demanded a reliable and sustainable solution. The Bavarian Historical Preservation Department has quickly identified these key benefits and has chosen the proven photinus Solar lighting range to illuminate their paths, parking lots and other public facilities. The mix of modern technology, futuristic design and energy saving aspects of the merkur300 meant it was ideally suited to the requirements set by the customer. 40 off grid solar lights now line the 1.5km driveway between ticket-Center Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein Castle and were installed by photinus partner Olaf Hoyer GmbH.

In this age of energy conservation, a self-contained, reliable solar LED lighting system is an ideal solution. These lights combine a wide range of benefits including free energy, off the grid flexiblity, intelligent lighting control and zero CO² emissions. The photinus Solar Lighting Range has expertly combined modern technology, reliability, and design with energy conservation and bringing it to a new level.
