If I remember correctly this castle was owned by a man whom really wanted children. If i have the story right I think that they tried for children many times, but failed… when they finally succeded he was so happy that he gave a gift to his wife which was part of the castle. For later births he had an additional wing added and a church built for his wife. Incredible isn’t it?over 6 years ago
The Chocolate is Divine
The Views are breathtaking
The Gardens can’t be replicated
The History is amazing
The place is beautful. I really enjoyed seeing all of the sights from the Sound of Music. It is a little bit surreal to think I was standind where a movie was filmed.

I must say that Austria is wonderful. I recently visited with a school group. One of my favorite places was Salzburg. This is the city where much of the movie The Sound Of Music was filmed. The gardens used in the movie and the Gazebo, the house, etc. We also toured a salt mine in the area. It was very educational and interesting. I also enjoyed Innsbruck. It had a lot of beautiful buildings to offer and other breathtaking sights.

I Took a trip recently to Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. We spent a day at Mt. Titlis. The Glacier is wonderous. Part of the Glacier is carved out. There is a light museum inside that is simply breathtaking. The cable cars are all very neat… there are so many of them to get up to the top of the mountain. My group had a snowball fight at the top of the mountain and flew on the ice flyer. Its freezing, but definetly worth itover 6 years ago
Switzerland is one of the beautiful countries I toured recently with a school group. I would recomend Switzerland for many reasons. It is extremely beautiful. Swiss National Day is August first. I would advise going during this time if possible. There is a lot of excitement throughout the country at this time. During this time We were staying in a town called Kanderstag… They put on a large bombfire and fireworks. It is a really big deal to them. If you get there be sure to have swiss cheese fondue. It is delicious. The cheese tastes considerably different from what I have had at home in the U.S. Luzern or Lucerne. The lake is beautiful. If you are in Lucerne you can rent paddle boats. The view of the city from the water is unbelievable. We also went to Endelsberg. Mt. Titlis. There is a glacier at the top.. The glacier is partially hollowed out and there is a light museum inside. Its freezing, but spectacular. The ice flyer is a great time and all the cable cars are very neat. In Hohenschwangau there is a Castle Neushwanstein, one of Kind Ludwig II’s castles. This is the castle that is a model for the Cinderella castle. It is beautifully ornate. An inside tour is greatly recomended. The Swiss Alps are a landmark that is truely a sight to see.

I recently traveled to Germany on a school trip. I’m not quite sure how to explain the time I had. It was nothing short of magnificent and surpassed my highest expectations. We did a lot of touring in Berlin. I would really recomend this area. It is the capital and it has a lot of German and therefor European history. A lot of information from World War 2 is provided. The Berlin Wall is a landmark everyone should witness. The Berlin Tower is beautiful. We stayed around the Alexanderplatz area. If you ever get there look for the Park Inn. We stayed there. Quite a large hotel =] I would also strongly recomend a trip through the black forrest. We stayed in a small town called Breitnau. The only word I can think of to describe it was breathtaking. Hiking along the streams is one of the greatest experience that I will remember forever. Last I would advise you to visit Munich or Munchen. This area has a lot of history. The Dachau Consentration Camp is the first concentration camp, which is located just outside of Munich. Visiting the camp is an eyeopening experience. I can go as far as telling you that my trip changed my life in ways that are hard to explain. It changed views on life and the importance of seeing the world before death.
