Here's What You Need To Know About This Breathtaking Waterfall Castle

Fairy tales do come true...

Posted on

Here's a beautiful image of a castle perched on a waterfall.

Here's another:

The fairy tale images have been circulating online since at least 2013, and are both regularly captioned as "Waterfall Castle in Poland" on Tumblr, Pinterest, and Twitter.

Here are both images, plus a few more in a montage attributed to the legendary site.

The only problem is there IS no "Waterfall Castle" in Poland. No official site exists online, no tour companies offer visits to the castle, and no person has ever been photographed in front of the images attributed to the site.

But that hasn't stopped people from adding it to their travel bucket lists.

Can't believe this place is real it's like something from a fairytale book #whateven #waterfallcastle 😧

The photos are likely photoshopped, and the Cave Church in Budapest seems to have inspired at least one of the mock-ups.

The good news is that Cave Church is a great bucket list substitute for Poland's completely unreal castle.

It's completely stunning tbh.

It's completely stunning tbh.

And the better news is that there actually is a Waterfall Castle out there in the real world.

That's the aqueduct at Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe in Kassel, Germany. It's a UNESCO site and it's breathtaking.

That's the Bergpark's stunning Hercules monument water theatre and you'd better be moving it up to the top of your must travel list.

You just have to know where to look.

Yeah, that's real too. The Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe is open year round, and you can catch the stunning but very real water features between 1 May and 3 October this year.
