The true fairy tales castle that inspired Walt Disney! I advise you to read King Ludwig II’s history too, to understand better the meaning of his castles.
A friend from Scotland is about to visit me in my hometown, so I thought that it could have been nice to take a virtual tour through this wonderful city and its landmarks! I’ve wonderful memories of this place, of its green meadows, its monuments, its peace, its large streets, the air that one breathes. Welcome to Scotland’s Capital, proud of its roots, of its history, of its own identity.

This is probably the world’s most famous thematic area of a theme park, but there’s more than the resonance of J.K. Rowling’s masterpieces here. Rides and scenography are stunning, the atmosphere one breathes here is the genuine magical astonishment of a child lost in a dreamy (but not too much) world of (wizarding) wonders.
Not to miss:
– Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringott (the two main rides of the area)
– A stroll through Diagon Alley (enjoying a fresh butterbeer)
– A ride from King’s Cross to Hogsmeade on the Hogwarts Express
