I am sure most of you all must remember the Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland! You know what inspired that? It’s this beautiful building located on a hill above the village Hohenschwangau in South Bavaria. It’s just you won’t find anyone dressed in furs, roaming around. And, the beauty of this place, glorifies even more in winters as the surrounding forest turns out like a while cotton shed. The castle is considered to be the most beautiful, as it was built in a time when nobody used to build a castle for defence purpose. Hence, it’s the sole decorative one.
Interesting fact is, the castle was supposed to have 200 rooms with a hall, but unfortunately, King Ludwig II died before it’s completion. But, though with 15 rooms, it still stands high as the beauty mark of Bavaria.
During the winters, this beautiful place is fully covered in snow. The place seems like the wings of an angel. Being the land of sun in the summer season, in winters the place totally turns out to be a white shed due to heavy snow fall. Winters are the best time to witness the serene beauty. What’s the best? The northern lights in the sintery cold night, up in the sky will leave you awestruck, that’s what Lapland in Finland is for you. And, in winters you get to have a santa’s reindeer car ride (exciting na). Another reason? Have you driven a snowmobile or a dog sled? No? Then here is your another reason to visit there.
