German name, it means 'New Swan Stone Castle'. The King (Ludwig II, the King of Bavaria) had a um... obsession with swans. He was later declared insane...

None of the above. This thing is a nest, but not made by the insect...The name of this thing is also the name of this insect.

Closest yet. The insect that leaves is a wingéd beast, but not a bee.
