    Fussen - Fun and Fabulous

    ... the 8th century - WHOA!

    While we didn't go into any of the museums (we spread these out so the kids don't get too bored with them), we did stop and enjoy a traditional treat called a schneeball (snowball) as we meandered back to the camper van. Imagine a crunch dough stuffed with milk chocolate and then dipped in it, too. We split it, and thank goodness we did or we would've been grossly stuffed ourselves! When we finished gorging ourselves, we made our ...

    Today we decided to tour the King's Castles: Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau both located near the village of Fussen, Germany. Because these are some of the most visited sites in all of Germany, we had booked early, and we were thankful we did! Basically, you're given a number, and when it shows on the screen, you'd better get through the turnstile as quickly as possible. Once you number is done showing up, you're out of luck!

    ... bankrupted the country with his frivolous pursuits including the construction of Neuschwanstein (which, incidentally, was Walt Disney's inspiration for Sleeping Beauty's castle). Only one-third of the castle was completed. Ludwig was declared incompetent and removed from his positon; he and his psychiatrist were found dead in a lake a few days later. The castle became a musuem just weeks after his death. It is incredibly ostentatious. It's filled with seccos depicting ...

    Day for Kings

    Our stay in Fussen was truly a day fit for kings. We arrived via train from Munich midday yesterday. The ride was enjoyable compared to the bus ride and gave me ample time to read and enjoy views of the countryside. Upon arrival, we immediately took a bus up the mountains to visit the castles. We started with a hike uphill to the Hohenschwangau castle, which was the older of the two that we visited. With beautiful views of the mountains ...

    ... off the list was ticked. We stopped by at a church first and as we reached the vicinity of the town, we could get a glimpse of the spectacular Disney castle peeping from the hillock. It was a mesmerizing experience. We took the horse cart ride up to the castle and enjoyed the trip around the castle. History about it was brilliant and sad too. Captured a lot of pictures. We also visited the Love Bridge and then we decided to walk back ...
