Once upon a time I lived near Dinkelsbühl in Germany. Memories come flooding back as I walked down the steps leading into this charming town.
One of many archway entrances into Dinkelsbühl. Once you step inside you are not in the real world anymore.
This medieval town is enchanted. It is a fortified city with walls all around. Walking on the cobblestone streets with gingerbread houses and castle towers that look like they were inspired by fairy-tales, is like stepping into the pages of a storybook. Hard to believe people actually live here!
If it wasn’t for the cars and people dressed in modern clothes you would think you are time-traveling! This picturesque place is a photographer’s delight!
It feels like the set on a fantasy movie. There’s magic around every corner. I even saw the Little Mermaid. Her hair is vibrant scarlet and she has the most beautiful smile.
She took a photo of me.
Even though we just met on the pages of this fairy tale, we sat down on the steps to chat and became instant friends.
No neon signs anywhere to be seen; every sign is beautifully hand-painted calligraphy on the walls of the buildings. Wooden shutters frame the windows and flowers adorn the window sills.
I bought a new Elisa Cavaletti blouse with unique buttons.
and Elisa Cavaletti lace legging capris …
Relaxing at one of the charming sidewalk cafes.
If there’s a prince and a princess somewhere in this little thousand year old town, I’m sure …
Coming up next: a real-life fairy tale that happened in Possenhofen in the 19th century with a real princess who lived in a real castle.
