Fantasy Castles Tour Report by Lucy
Greetings everyone! I just came back from our 10 day Fantasy Castles Tour. Like all of our previous tours, this tour has also been a smashing success.
The 17 of us felt like kings and queens visiting the most ornate dwellings ever built. Just like King Ludwig II, we strolled through his castles and palaces perched high above the enchanting Bavarian Alps.
We also took a step back in time with our visit of the castle of Salzburg; from its tall towers we were treated to the most breath taking views of this ancient city surrounded by the green belt of the countryside.
We had a fun time on the grounds of the Palace of Hellbrunn with the Wasserspiele (trick fountains) trying to avoid getting wet by the most ingenious trick fountains built by the jovial arch-bishop and his water-powered figures.
We traveled to The Czech Republic and visited the most fantastic castles. The history behind these castles is truly remarkable. Hluboka castle not only has its own fascinating history, but also has the most beautiful and lavish interiors of any castle. Karlstejn castle was designed as treasury for the imperial crown jewels. Hradcany, or Prague castle, is the most extensive castle in Europe; Crystal, our youngest tour member, wanted to have her wedding there.
Strolling and shopping around the cobbled streets of Cesky Krumlov was one the best days of the tour. Dining at one of the most historical hotels was fabulous. Jack, a tour member, did not want to leave this well-preserved historical center. We finally had to coax him out!
