WW - Schloss Neuschwanstein



I finally found the box that had my external hard drive in it which had my pictures from our time in Germany be prepared I am sure I will be sharing lots more of my pictures. I will start with one of my favorite vacations we took while we were there. Schloss Neuschwanstein most people know this as the Cinderella Castle this was Walt Disney's inspiration for both The Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disney Land and The Cinderella Castle at Disney World. We werent allowed to take pictures inside so I took tons of pictures of the outside but its such a beautiful place. We had to walk up a steep mountainside to get to the castle we however opted to pay for a horse buggy ride to the top which still took 10 minutes. Once inside we walked up 100 stairs during the tour, there were only 10 rooms of this castle open to the public to view and as big as it is it still isnt finished and only 14 rooms total are decorated.

I was there in 1999 I believe. So very beautiful. A picture doesn't do it justice. :)

Hi and thank you for visiting my place today. I have been to Europe twice and dream of returning. That is an amazing castle. I look forward to your posts with your pictures from Germany. It's a good way to learn more about these unique places in the world. What I love most about Europe is the architecture and how it is so preserved. The US is so young, we just don't have the same buildings.
Thanks for sharing!

I think that the very best part of being an "army brat" would be getting to go places that most kids will never have a chance to see except in pictures. How wonderful that you took such beautiful pictures to share with the all of us unlucky civilian brats.
