The famous Sleeping Beauty castle of Disney was inspired by this real life castle built by King Ludwig II in the 19th century as a tribute to Richard Wagner. It’s just 2 hours away from Munich by train and promises a picturesque scenery on the way there.

The many murals in Neuschwanstein are scenes from many of Richard Wagner’s plays. You might be familiar with works such as “Tristan and Isolde” and “Parsifal”. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed within castle walls, but let’s go on this beautiful adventure together shall we?

The weather was beautiful. I consider myself lucky since it was raining the day before and after. It contributed to a much more magical fairytale experience.

Photos are allowed when you’re taking photos outside of the castle windows. Weird logic but as long as it’s allowed. The castle windows provide an excellent view of the mountains.

German sausages. Yum.

Decided to go with a more casual outfit since there’s some form of hiking involved. My travelling companions thought I was very brave to wear something with heels.
