Neuschwanstein castle will be illuminated progressively using 20 lamps in a 12 step sequence, using a Circuitron PL-12 Progressive Lamp Circuit, customized to obtain longer step times.

Lamp supports were made out of 5/32" and 7/32" plastic tube, cut to the proper lamp height, for each area inside the castle model.

Examples, Step-1 will start the sequence lighting the front gate, Step-10 will illuminate King Ludwig's Alcove at the fourth castle level, using a lamp support 45mm high above the castle base, Step-12 will end the sequence by lighting the 20th lamp illuminating a small window at the top of the highest tower.

The castle then stays completely illuminated for some time and then the sequence starts over again.

Appropriate classical background music will be heard from within Schloss Neuschwanstein.
