ENCHANTED ~ Castles - Neuschwanstein by Domythic Bliss



As a child I read and loved all the classic fairytales and the wonderful illustrations of forests and castles. It was with great wonder as an adult that I came to Europe and visited the places which inspired their authors and illustrators. I never tire of finding the source of books, poetry and art.

I enjoyed reading this post which is a fine tribute to Cinderella's castle Neuschwanstein by Grace at Domythic Bliss. This castle and it's King have a real story all their own played out to a Wagner soundtrack. Have a look and be inspired.

    1. Thank you, sadly I cannot claim it as mine, it is from a travel brochure I have had for a long time and the photographer is not credited. I love the colours.

    1. PS as well, ha ha! Zoe is a wonderful name, so pretty. It is unusual to live with a feral, they have much to teach us and much to give. I hope yours is well & happy. x

  5. I'm off to click on that link. Many years ago, on a rainy day in April, I visited Neuschwanstein and had a private tour with a group of about 10 women. It was a wonderful day and an incredible memory, yet. There is something about the castle that appeals to the little girl in so many of us.

  7. I love castles, especially Scandinavian style castles, which tend to have very rounded architecture reminiscent of fairytale palaces. Great post!
