SWITZERLAND, Iseltwald – The quaint village of Iseltwald lies east of Interlaken, Switzerland, living quietly upon the shores of Lake Brienz. A mere population of about 500, the picturesque village seems to fit right into any movie set of Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.
On the far edge of the village, stretching out into Lake Brienz stands the Schloss Seeburg. Sitting on the tranquil turquoise lake, you would be forgiven if you thought you were transported into your own fairytale. A castle originally built during the Middle Ages, it’s not as imposing or grand as Germany’s famed Neuschwanstein Castle, but its stature is tailor-made for Iseltwald — subtle, but no less magical.
