Wawel's first photo is stunning!

Poland has some of the most beautiful castles in Europe, no doubt about it!

^ Well, both of these castles aren't situated in the Bavarian Alps, but in the state of Baden-Württemberg in a region called Swabian Alps.

There are quite a lot of beautiful sights in and around this mountain range.

Another example for a unique fairy tale castle in this region would be Lichtenstein Castle:
