Enchantment

I took these photos during the late fall/early winter last year. You can view photos that I took of this area this past spring HERE.

I received several request to post my photos of the Neuschwanstein Castle in snow. While I did get some good shots, I feel like they’re not as good as the photos I took during the spring.

The area is beautiful covered in snow, however I would not recommend visiting around this time of year. All hiking trails around the castle are spring/summer trails so they are closed. This includes the Marienbrücke bridge (which is the bridge right next to the castle that will give you the most PERFECT photo!). I’ve seen photos from other sites where they snuck around the barricades and went up to the bridge anyway. We were contemplating this at the time, but I wasn’t wearing the right shoes to trudge through the snow that covered the trail.

Dress warmly, wear the right shoes, and you will be fine! 🙂

Many more photos to come. 😀

    1. I almost missed visiting the Castle the first time! My friend said ‘I think the roads are supposed to be icy and it’s supposed to snow.’ I told him ‘I don’t care!! WE ARE GOING!!’ Hahaha 🙂 Thank you! Yes, it is like a fairytale land!

  1. Simply amazing snaps of the Neuschwanstein Castle….Saw it myself when I was in Munich for a conference….You have truly managed to capture the rugged and pristine beauty of the castle and the landscape around it….Excellent work!!!
