... tour of Fussen was spot-on and left us wanting to walk and learn more about this little slice of Bavaria. We spent about 45 minutes touring the city and learned about the village's history and culture along the way. Starting at the TI, we first viewed the Hotel Hirsh and it's restored Art Nouveau paintings and decor.

Although the interior was not completed before the king's questionable death after he was declared mad, what was finished was almost as breathtaking ...
Today again starts with breakfast at 7.30am. Steve goes all the way today with two hard boiled eggs for breakfast. Steve is our driver for the day. We are off to visit the summer palace today. The drive tales us into Austria for a short time. We traveled past a magnificent lake and stopped for a daily shot. Unfortunately the weather is not so good today and there is light rain. Eventually make it to the summer palace. This is the smallest of the three ...
