Idyllic castles you have to see at least once


Many of us grew up watching the fairy-like television shows that had castles with turrets that pierced the clouds and forests with mist that surrounded the grounds and shrouded the castle in mystery. We may not be children anymore but that magic is certainly not lost. To witness the breathtaking sight of the castles that inspired those beloved fairy tales is not one you would be likely to forget. While there are hundreds of gorgeous castles to choose from, below is a list of a several to inspire your wanderlust.

Neuschwanstein Castle - Germany

castle-2602216_1920

Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most romantic and famous attractions in all of Germany. Built over seventeen years (1869-1886) under the shy King Ludwig II, this palace is known for inspiring two Disney castles! It has been recorded that Walt Disney traveled with his wife to Europe and stopped by Neuschwanstein and thus brought the inspiration of the castle to the big screen. Fourteen rooms inside the castle are fully furnished and on display to the public, including: the king's bedroom, the Singer's Hall, and the cave-like grotto. The king's bedroom is filled with stunning carpentry and it is said that over a dozen carpenters spent four years working on the woodwork! Another benefit to visiting here is that it only costs 12 euros (13 USD or 17 CAD) for adults and it's free for anyone under the age of eighteen! While no photography is allowed inside the castle itself, to snap the iconic photo of the castle from the outside you're going to want to travel to Marienbrücke, or Marien Bridge, where you can see Neuschwanstein Castle in all it's glory.
