The third day we were in Germany we got to see Neuschwanstein Castle! We took a bus and when we were close enough where we could spot the castle high up in the mountains, we honestly thought it was a different castle or something! It looked super small since it was so so high up!

The snow covering the trees and ground made for such a dreamy day. I may be from Minnesota and I may have sworn off anything that has to do with the cold, but I must admit I forgot about all that everytime we saw snow in the mountains. It’s just so beautiful! I think I realized that as long as I don’t have to drive in the snow, I’m all about it!! Haha It was pretty cold out – in the upper 20’s fahrenheit – so we got some hot cocoa while we waited for the carriage to take us up the mountain to the castle.

When we got to the top, we started the tour of the inside of Neuschwanstein. The rooms that we were allowed to see were incredibly extravagant. The wood carvings in the walls in Ludwig’s bedroom and the paintings EVERYWHERE… then there was the hallway that he made to look like the inside of a cave with stalactites and everything!! The furniture was so detailed and flawless, I couldn’t imagine living in a place so perfect. Unfortunately, less than a third of the rooms in the castle were finished before Ludwig died. And of the ones that were, they only show a handful on the tour 😦 And there were no pictures allowed inside, so that was really sad. We had such an unforgettable time taking the horse and carriage up the mountain and eating in a little chalet at the base of the castle though, so it made up for the disappointment 😉

I’ll put up more pictures tomorrow!
