Dornroschenschloss Sababurg, Germany

Dornroschenschloss Sababurg, Germany

Once upon a time not so far away two brothers frequented a castle built a long, long time ago. They were enamoured by the beauty and the ambience of the castle and incorporated it into one of their famous fairy tales, that of Sleeping Beauty. The two brothers were the Grimm brothers who have been delighting little children with their tales of romance, everlasting love, heroes, villains and castles for centuries.
As children we have all harboured fantasies of being Sleeping Beauty or the prince that rescues her from eternal sleep with true love’s kiss. We would dress up as the princess or the prince at parties and enact the tale with our friends. We may no longer be children but the lure of childhood fantasies lives on.
The Dornroschenschloss Sababurg castle gives us an opportunity to truly live out the fantasies of our childhood. It gives us a chance to stay in what became the home of Sleeping Beauty and for a few days pretend that we are the damsel in distress or the charming prince that rescues her.
As the lines of reality and fantasy blur the charm of nostalgia takes over and transports us to a land far, far away where anything is possible.
