Though unfinished, the Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most visited castles in the world! This very picturesque castle was built in 1868 by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Imagine a castle that sits on top of a rock ledge over Pollat Gorge in the Bavarian Alps. Once you see it, for sure, you will notice its resemblance to Disney’s Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. You will truly feel like a royal in this magnificent castle.

Palacio Da Pena is a former monastery that became a summer residence for the Portuguese royal family. Now it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a national monument that constitutes one of the primary expressions of 19th-century Romanticism in the world! And because of this, Pena Palace definitely is worth considering to be your fairy tale wedding venue. It’s built on top of a hill overlooking the magnificent flora and fauna and the charming town of Sintra, which is a mysterious and magical town.
