Huge climate banner at 'fairytale' German castle

STORY: The 19th century Neuschwanstein castle in the Bavarian Alps on the border with Austria is commonly known as a “fairytale castle” and a popular tourist attraction in southern Germany.

Sunday’s protest came as world leaders gather for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP 27 in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

In a written statement, Koala Kollektiv said their demand for climate justice was directed at the “political decision makers” gathered for COP 27 who needed to “act quickly and decisively to limit further global warming.”
