Ludwig II and his Castles

September 9-10

First I have to say, finally a good Internet Connection.  I just can’t take having slow Internet; it is hard to keep my friends updated with the latest trip info.

Back to the topic at hand, after spending some great days in Southeast, we traveled a few hours to Fussen in order to visit the famous castle that inspired Walt Disney’s castle.  The weather was nice on Monday when we got in town so we got out and took some pictures of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.  We followed up on the next day with our on site visits, which were just amazing.

Once at the top the first stop was Marien Bridge for some shots.

The other main Castle was where Ludwig II grew up just below the big castle called Hohenschwangau

    Where Disney got their ideas for their logo. Loved both castles. Did you see the bed or table that lowers into the floor? Get rid of unwelcome visitors in a hurry.
