Just 2 hours by train from the bustling city of Munich, we arrived at Fussen, a tiny Bavarian hamlet, renowned for its castles.
The train came to a halt at Fussens tiny station and we disembarked out into the cold crisp air with snow all around us.
People hurried to get on a local bus waiting at the door but we decide to explore this delightful place and set off up into the main centre of town. Brighly lit shops and cafes looked inviting and our first stop was to have a hot chocolate and a piece of famous apfelstrudel, and we werent disappointed so with stomachs full we walked around the little lanes, past tall Christmas trees colourfully decorated and finally back to the bus stop to get the bus to take us to the world famous Neuschwanstein castle.
A 15 minute busride took us to the foot of the Alps where high above us, nestled in the fir trees stood the famous Neuschwanstein Castle....where the film of Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang was filmed.
A childhood dream to visit this castle had come true for my daughter as we queued for the horse and carriage ride up to the base of the castle.
A further 15 minute walk awaited so I settled myself into a warm cosy bar whilst my daughter trudged up the track to get her first glimpse of this magical place. She wasnt disappointed and after 90 minutes came back down to meet me full of tales of King Ludwig and his maniacal idea of building this monument.
