5 AMAZING CASTLES IN GERMANY THAT AREN’T NEUSCHWANSTEIN

Neuschwanstein was my top priority on my first trip to Germany. It is a stunning fairytale castle, but I was one of nearly a thousand people there. It was hard to enjoy it while dodging large tour groups and waiting in lines. 

As I began planning for my month-long road-trip through Germany last fall I knew the country was studded with castles, perhaps the most in Europe. I wanted to find the hidden gems; the ones I could visit without hoards of tourists and motor coaches in my way. These are my five favorite castles from the trip.
