The Neuschwanstein Castle, one of the most popular of all the palaces and castles of Europe, is solar-lit by Photinus’ “Merkur”

The Neuschwanstein Castle built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, on the Bavarian Alps sits on top of a hill in an idyllic landscape. It enjoys 1.4 million visitors per year and is considered as Germany’s most famous castle. 

After an international selection process, Photinus, a Pytheas company, has been awarded to light the 1.5 km main drive way to the castle with its “Merkur”. Like all Photinus autarkic solar lights that stand for innovation, resilience and elegance of the highest quality, the Merkur has a panel performance of ?1000 watt that is vertically arranged (thus preventing snow accumulation) and with a 360° photovoltaic (PV) fixture. Amongst other, the Merkur boasts a solar module efficiency that is 43% higher than competition, a battery lifetime to 15 years, and a 5-year guarantee on all components.

Finally with the Merkur, autarkic solar lights are upgraded beyond the luminance class S5!
