Day 36: Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castle Bavaria, Germany
Yesterday was beyond a fairytale.
We deciding hiking to the castle would be the best/prettiest option to get to the castles since they were only 4 miles away and it was a beautiful day with some clouds to make some amazing pictures.
We got onto a trail off the Main Street in Fussen and were interdicted by a little chapel/station where there was a painting or religious relic.
There were many of them on the trail. Each numbered. This was number 2.
Monuments sprinkled along the trail.
And s little alp snail friend. There were snails and slugs everywhere.
Here is another station with a painting in it.
A tomb inside a cave.
The view was getting prettier by the minute.
I loved these purple mountain flowers
The trail was a little slippery on some parts from the rain the night before, and full of roots.
We can see the castles! Getting close.
We stumbled upon a couple swans and their ducklings in a pond.
Are we in a fairytale?
We made it to Hogenshwangau, where King Ludwig of Bavaria lived.
There's Neuschwanstein in the distance.
Hohenschwangau from afar.
We had a well deserved beer at a beer hall after hiking 4 hours
I love him.
And BEER! we're not in wine country anymore 😉
