If you’ve ever watched a Disney film then it’s likely that you’ve fantasied about living in your own fairy tale home. But it need not be a dream. This fairy tale architecture actually exists!
Here are 16 of our favourites:
1. Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany
This beautiful castle, which is built in the mountains of Germany, looks like it has been plucked from a Disney film. Especially with all that theatrical fog.
2. The bridge over Låtefossen waterfall in Norway
If you’ve ever played Skyrim then this bridge looks just like the scenery from the game. Can you imagine a few fairy tale trolls living under this bridge?
3. Kingdom of Berendeevo in Russia
This house is set in the Kingdom of Berendeevo in Russia where a small village has been dedicated to traditional Russian fairy tales and stories.
4. Wat Rong Khun in Thailand
Known by westerners as the White Temple, this Thai temple is uttely majestic. It looks like someone like Elsa might live within it.
5. The Winter Palace in St Petersburg
With it’s teal, white and gold this palace looks like the home of a fairy tale princess. We’re thinking Cinderella.
6. Renndølsetra in Norway mountains
With that fog-covered mountain in the background and the grass covered buildings in front. This place looks like it should be inhabited by hobbits or elves.
7. Tree houses in British Columbia
These look like the houses of fairies, especially with the spiraling staircases. We’d love one of these in our back garden.
8. This house in Norway
Set under the Northern Lights, this house could be straight out of a Philip Pullman novel.
9. Hallstatt in Austria
This Austrian village looks like it’s been carved into the side of the mountains. The lack in front is especially spectacular.
10. Hobbit houses in Wales
If you’ve ever wanted to live like a hobbit then all you have to do is move to Wales. Of course you’ll have to be about 4ft to live in them comfortably.
11. Nautilus House in Mexico
Looking somewhat similar to a shell, this little Mexican cottage could be set in The Little Mermaid.
12. Seashell house in Mexico
Now if the last house kind of looked like it belonged to a mermaid, then this one definitely does. Especially with the pool outside.
13. Rustic Way Whimsical house in Minnesota
There’s definitely a witch living in this house. Avoid if you’re called Hansel or Gretel.
14. Stone House in Portugal
Perhaps two giants were having a fight and some smart onlooker decided to make a house out of the damage left.
15. Abandoned wooden houses in Russia
These beautiful wooden mansions have been left abandoned, which is odd in itself. The house itself is pretty fantasy as well.
16. Maison de Sorcière Avec Ciel d’orage in France
Even the name says it – it’s a house of sorcery! Not sure we’d be entering this house alone…
