At a Glance

Think you know the real story? Think again. Alongside your grandchild, venture to Germany’s Black Forest, where fairy tales were first dreamed up and the Brothers Grimm sat down to tell their tales. From “Hansel and Gretel” to “Sleeping Beauty,” some of the most famous stories were shaped in this part of this world, and now you’ll have the awesome opportunity to learn how they came to be. Along the way, feel like you’ve stepped into a picture book yourself as you both explore castles, waterfalls, tiny villages and fun markets together.
