One weekend last month, my friends Morgan and Carolyn and I took a short trip over to the little town of Reutte in Austria in order to visit King Ludwig’s legendary castles across the border in Germany.
I can honestly say that Neuschwanstein may be one of my all-time favorite castles!
I love the inside of this castle even better than Versailles.
I love that every single wall throughout is covered with paintings of stories, operas, and fairy tales.
I love that Ludwig incorporated swans all over the place.
I love that the castle is so Disney-like, and that Walt Disney himself supposedly acquired inspiration here.
My favorite thing about visiting castles is taking moments here and there to imagine myself as a princess living inside.
A new item added to my bucket list: Paragliding on a beautiful day over Neuschwanstein castle.
I hope you enjoy seeing these glimpses of such a beautiful construction (sadly, pictures weren’t allowed inside).
