castle which stood on a high rock at the edge of the road. While here I realised
there was not much traffic at all coming down this road and so began to wonder
if it was even open over the pass.
Back on my bike and upwards we go. No cars at all and I really am getting

... would be going to Neuschwanstein Castle for the day. I was so excited to be able to see this castle, and it has been one of my top places to see since I was little.

... some unfurnished nineteenth century storage areas. Also, we're cheap. (in my defense, $60 USD buys a LOT of beer)
But viewing Neuschwanstein from Mary's Bridge, suspended above the castle, has been the highlight of this trip so far. It was definitely worth a 2-hour train ride and an hour's worth of hiking to see this modern wonder.
