I don't have as much as a word to describe what it felt like to be strutting across widespread fields of snow to reach out to the distant snow-capped alpine peaks. After the experience, all I can say is that fairy lands exist and if you are still wondering where to start looking, then you might want to consider spending your next winter in the midst of the Bavarian valleys. PS: What you may see on the internet will most certainly give you second thoughts about visiting the place in winters because every season happens to paint the place in its own distinct and spectacular colours. Nevertheless, irrespective of the time of the year, its a fairy land! Also, you can be assured of some magic. Ever imagined sustaining on a budget of a mere 150 euros over three days on a European outing? Even if nowhere else, its certainly possible in Bavaria :) :) And here's your fairy God mother's guide to the best of Bavaria and how she pulled it off on a shoe-string budget! ;)
DAY 1- Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein Castle and Alpsee
The Neuschwanstein castle, a wonderful gift from King Ludwig-II, is a very popular attraction in Germany. However, what many miss out on their trip are the other hidden wonders in the picturesque village of Hohenschwangau, where the castle was constructed. So, don't be lazy and start your day early.
