It’s bleak, desolate, and forlorn on the outside…

But you can find happiness inside!

The Castle that Inspired the Magic Kingdom

The Castle that Inspired the Magic Kingdom

I’ve been lucky to visit Schloss Neuschwanstein (Neuschwanstein Castle) two times during different seasons. The first time was a few months ago when the castle was covered in ice and snow. And again, just last week with my mom on a beautiful spring day.

Neuschwanstein is located in Bavaria, Germany and is one of the most recognized castles in the world. It was built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, however, he died before it was fully completed. Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at the Disney theme parks were inspired by Neuschwanstein. The area around the castle truly looks like a fairytale land!
