... we visited. Neuschwanstein Castle is exactly how you would imagine a fairy tale castle. It’s what Disney Land castle was actually based on. It was jaw dropping seeing it high up in the mountains surrounded by the grand alps. We could have walked up the mountain but, ya know, who wouldn’t want to ride up in a horse and cart!

Well google maps does a pretty good job at working without a connection. It does a fair bit without any help but if you do the following, it works even better
... a short video about king ludwig's life and mysterious death... Very interesting. I did not know he only lived at neuschwanstein for 6 months before he "died". We rested for the remainder of the bus ride- we have been playing a lot of "4 pics one word"....
