Postcard of the Week: Neuschwanstein Castle
I went to Munich a couple of weeks ago and although my knowledge of Germany is very limited, I did know one thing: I wanted to visit Neuschwanstein Castle. Back in 2008 a friend of mine first showed me a photo of this fairy-tale castle perched on top of a hill, with sweeping views over the land, its elegant turrets and towers spiking majestically towards the sky.
It looks stunning. Just looking at this postcard makes me want to buy a dirt-cheap and dilapidated castle to renovate simply so I can live in castle (and therefore a constant state of daydream).
However the sad thing is that we didn’t manage to actually visit the castle as it’s over 2 hours away from Munich and we apparently woke up too late to make a proper day trip of it. So for now it’s going to remain on my “to-visit” list.
Have you been to this castle? Is it as beautiful and majestic as it looks? Which is your favourite castle?
