Castles for Kids

PK (pre-kids), my husband and I took some great vacations. Germany, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, etc. I’ve been daydreaming lately about our PK adventures.newsch1

Throughout our trips in Europe, I always resisted touring the old castles. I’m not much of a history buff and honestly I preferred a good shopping trip to touring the castles.

In Germany at the end of the Romantic Road, my husband convinced me to tour one castle with him, Newschwanstein .

I’m so glad that I did. I have very vivid memories of this place (including the very steep climb up a snow covered path). The rich tapestries, the grandiose beds, the intricate details…I was very impressed.

I’ve been thinking lately, “How do I convince my kids that all this history is really interesting?”. By breaking them in slowly. Try these castles to get your kids interested in ‘history’:
