A magical fairytale in Bavaria

I have just come back from an incredibly magical five days spent up in the mountains of the Bavarian forest in Germany. Everything about my stay was beautiful, magical and so wonderfully festive. There is so much I would like to share with you, from the unique archtitecture, the stunning landscape and the amazing attention to detail given to interior decorating to the delicious foodie treats and of course, the Christmas markets. So take a few minutes and transport yourself to the wonder that is fairytale Bavaria!

When St Niklaus came to town :) The old traditions are the best

I hope you have enjoyed looking through these photos and can understand what I mean when I say how fairytale like it is in Bavaria. The air was filled with the aroma of cinnamon, star anise and cloves and the mood was filled with Christmas cheer...and on the last day...

the icing on the cake snowed. Perfect!
