... just spinning and they weren't moving anymore.

At this point we really wished we had snow chains! We kept going anyway and pulled over at a servo to see if they sold them (no luck) so we kept going. It was mostly on the Autobahn the rest of the way so we figured it should be fine. We then encountered what is known here as a Stau - basically a huge traffic jam which backs up for ages. The road was very snowy and ...

... it was morning tea time and handed out the muffins from this mornings breakfast buffet- a brawl erupted over which one belonged to who.
Not so 'Romantic' with 5 kids in tow!
We saw snow on the ground for the first time this holiday & were surrounded by snow capped alps.
We were very aware that this was our last full day in Germany. We have loved our time here. Dan said it is his favourite (I think it gets bonus points for the food).

Lost in the wonderful Alps

... junction to which for some reason I simply
have no memory of at all. The area is surrounded by magical Dolomite looking
mountains and really is spectacular. I have been up this road a number of times

Instead of following the satnav's instructions and turning right I turned

scenery, it was just out of this ...

... the bridge, where many of the iconic pictures of the castle are taken from. I was so excited I practically ran onto this bridge which was a little more rickety than I would have liked but I was out there for a while anyway! The castle was magnificent- it was stunning against the background of the mountains. I could have stayed there all day, and would have been happy.

Mad King Ludwig's Castle

A travel blog entry by judyinocala on Sep 09, 2014

Today we went to Schwangau to visit Neuschwanstein, the iconic castle of Mad King Ludwig. He ruled Bavaria for 22 years until his mysterious death in 1886 at the age of 40. He was called "Mad" because of his eccentric life and lavish spending. He spent 17 years building his dream castle but got to live in it only 172 days. At that point he was declared mentally unfit to rule and carried away. He was found dead in a lake two days later.
