Eltz castle

In Elz Castle, in Wierschem, still lives the same family since 33 generations. It’s a medieval castle and it’s built on a 70-metre rock spur: the view from there is breath taking!

Castello di Neuschwanstein

Neuschwanstein Castle

Does Neuschwanstein Castle, in Bavaria, reminds you something? Well, actually it gave inspirations to Walt Disney to create all the most famous castles of its animated movies: Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel. Every year 1,4 millions of people visit it.

 

Hohenschwangau castle

Hohenschwangau castle

Hohenschwangau castle is exactly opposite to Neuschwanstein castle and until 1829 it was completely abandoned. King Maximilian II of Bavaria then decided to purchase it and rebuilt it, bringing the castle to its old charm that is still recognizable today.
