Soar Above a Fairy-Tale World in This 2-Minute Drone Video

Escape to a wintery wonderland as you soar above magnificent peaks, frozen lakes, and snowy forests. This stunning drone film transports you to some of Europe's most dazzling sites, including the magical Neuschwanstein Castle that helped inspire the Disney castles for Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. Filmmaker Joshua Cowan traveled through southern Germany, Austria, and northern Italy to capture the footage for this spectacular piece.
