Bavaria, Cinderella-land, literally.

On our first full day in beautiful Germany, we drove from our hotel near the airport in Nuremberg, south to Neuschwanstein Castle, allegedly Walt Disney’s real-life inspiration for the design of Disneyland’s Cinderella’s Castle.

And it was a complete fairytale. Riding in a horse-drawn carriage into the mountains, the rainbow of architecture, the rainbow of foliage. A blue-green lake at the foot of a snow-covered mountain, friendly ducks circling the gingerbread houses.

The perfect place to pretend to be a princess for an afternoon.
