Neushwanstein is another treasure of Germany that is as popular now as it has ever been. King Ludwig II’s castle is truly world famous and stands prominently against the jaw dropping background with the Alps cutting a stunning figure against the backdrop of snow. This stunning castle is the most visited building in Germany and gives a real sense of majestic fairytale magic like stepping into a Disney cartoon. This is also evident in the fact that Walt Disney based the beautiful Disney castle in the theme park on this structure taking inspiration from its shape and setting.

A final must-see place to visit in Germany is Dresden’s most famous attraction, the Church of Our Lady.

    While I havn’t seen some of the places you mentioned (Dresden & Cologne) I have visited Marienplatz in Munich. I adored the Town Hall. The Residenz in Wurzburg which was amazing and equally amazing to realize how much had been reconstructed after the war to its present status. I was very impressed with what I saw of architecture and scenery in Germany. It was also one of the cleanest countries I have ever visited, no rubbish anywhere just green and clean.
