Bavarian Castles and Alpen Views

Neuschwanstein-Castle-Germany

Whenever I see Cinderella’s castle, I’m reminded of my time spent in Bavaria. I was so impressed with the beauty, I have arranged another trip for July of 2014, so I can practice my Deutsch and show my students the loveliness of Bavaria and Austria. Would you like to see how lovely?

Kommt mit mir!

Mad King Ludwig poured his Bavarian money into the construction of the Neuschwanstein castle in 1869. Twenty years later at his death, the castle was still not completed. The fairy-tale castle inspired Walt Disney and you can see a version if you go to the Magic Kingdom, but I recommend visiting the real thing.

If you’ve seen Neuschwanstein, and paraded around the grounds with hundreds of other tourists, you are awestruck by the opulence and the views from the windows.

Hohensalzburg is a castle in the Austrian city of Salzburg, atop the Festungsberg mountain. If I could live anywhere for six months, I would choose Salzburg. Sehr schön!

If you get the chance, choose to ride down the Danube River and watch the gorgeous country side from the ferryboat.

    1. I wish I could have spent longer there. It was the last leg of the trip and we were only there for 3 days. I could have easily spent several months. Yes, the beer! Delicious….
