Just in time before Disney's real-life version of "Beauty and The Beast" shows in theaters, five magical destinations that exist in real life could refresh travelers about the definition of a fairytale. A Bavarian castle, hot air balloon flights over amazing, fantasy-style rock formations and even a wacky house are just a few of these destinations.

Poland's Krzwy Domek, which translates to "Crooked House," is the appearance of a house put right in front of a funny mirror in most amusement parks -- it is warped and twisted. No walls, doors and windows are straight. Warning, it has introduced vertigo to unprepared visitors.

In Disney's "Up," memorable adventurer-seeking couple Carl and Ellie wanted to build their house on a cliff in "Paradise Falls." There is no "Paradise Falls," but there is Preachers Pulpit or Pulpit Rock. According to BBC, it looks like it "came out from Looney Tunes' Roadrunner and Coyote cartoons," although it still looks like the cliff side of "Paradise Falls."

Bavaria's Neschwanstein Castle in Germany is said to have inspired Walt Disney to use it as the basis for the company's iconic castle logo. The interiors of the castle will remind any traveler of the halls of "Beauty and The Beast" during its amazing dance scene. In fact, even the nearby village looks like the set used for the real actor version of the animated classic.

Turkey is known as a honeymoon vacation destination for its many romantic locations that could be almost anywhere. But if couples want magical, a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia would transport them to a land that looks like it was made from computer-generated graphics. Cone-like rock formations, amazing green plains and roads and the elation brought by high-flying hot air balloon rides make Cappadocia a must-visit.

Disney's "Mulan" was based in China but Bhutan's architecture closely resembles the temples, mountains and the overall environment of the animated film's battles. According to Earth Trekkers, The place has "all the ingredients of perfect fairytale destinations" with "towering magnificent mountains, small quiet  villages" and "beautiful landscapes" that are centuries old.
