Fussen to Prague

The Czech capital, with its UNESCO-listed Old Town and sprawling medieval castle, is renowned for its atmospheric architecture. And beer.

From Fussen Disney without the mouse

If you think you’ve seen this castle somewhere before, then you have — it’s the real life castle that was the model for the castle featured in Sleeping Beauty, used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and inspired Disney to create his Magic Kingdom. Even the location of the castle is simply breathtaking, as it sits at the top of a beautiful gorge in the Bavarian Alps. Built by Ludwig II between 1869 and 1886, the interior of the castle is every bit as awe-inspiring as the outside and reflects his obsession with Wagner, his preoccupation with medieval royalty and his retreat into fantasy. Central to the castle is opera and the works of Wagner, which Ludwig intended to be a shrine to his close friend. Although some rooms were never finished, Neuschwanstein remains the ultimate visitor experience for those looking to come face-to-face with a genuine fairytale castle.

To Prague The City of a Hundred Spires

According to legend, Prague was founded in the 8th century when the duchess Libuše stood atop a rocky cliff overlooking the Vltava and prophesied: "I see a great city whose glory will touch the stars!". In the 14th century, Charles IV Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia personally elevated Prague into an imperial capital. Charles himself designed the layout of Nové Město, laid the first stone of the Charles Bridge, and founded Charles University. Over the following centuries, Prague experienced its fair share of ups and downs, not to mention a few defenestrations, but was spared the devastation that befell many European cities. Every visitor’s first stop should be the Old Town Square, for the beautiful Baroque buildings lining it, and the famed astronomical clock on the Old Town Hall. From here, you can easily reach the world famous Charles Bridge, and make your way up to expansive castle complex.
