{Munich Day Trip: Neuschwanstein Castle}

 We really used Munich as our hub for a couple great day trips -- first, Salzburg, and then Neuschwanstein Castle.
We used Lauren's awesome instructions on how to get there and they didn't fail us!
We found ourselves in a bit of a time crunch upon arriving so we actually skipped the tour of the inside and went straight to the viewpoint, which we heard was the main reason to go anyway. While I don't know what we missed inside, I can say that we left feeling like we saw what we had gone to see, so I guess that's good!
Neuschwanstein Castle is one of those places you go that really makes you feel like you're in Europe. It was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and really does look like it's straight out of a fairy tale!

  9. Gorgeous photos. And I love your sweater- I was going to ask where it's from but since someone commented up above it's from J Crew- mystery solved.

    I remember seeing that castle on an episode of Amazing Race. I bet it was amazing!
