You can pretend to be a prince(ss)
Germany has many castles. In fact, they have a whole road that is just 1200km (745 miles) of castles stretching from Mannheim, the south west of the country, straight to the Czech Republic. Neuschwanstein is the most famous of these, but our expert advice is to look out for Prince Charming as a less popular stop on the trail. The math is on your side!
Or a knight fighting on the side of the righteous
Maybe your fantasies involve more than just waiting around for fate to do its thing. If you’re the type to make your own destiny, then head directly for the north of Germany and their knights’ castles. The pick of the crop is Burg Eltz on the Rhine, but Wewelsburg in Büren or Reichsburg Castle in Cochem also have loads of medieval artefacts.
Or a long-haired maiden in need of rescue
With its high tower perched on a cliff over looking the valley, Lichtenstein Castle, about 45 minutes from Stuttgart is the perfect place to live out any and all Rapunzel fantasies. If that’s not a convenient location, then Reichsburg Castle in Cochem or Marienburg Castle in Hanover also have suitable towers.
