... gates, with a counting sign over them. When 10:25 rolls around, our tour number appears on the sign. We put our tickets in and out of a reader, and pass through the turnstile. If you miss your 5 minute window, your ticket is void--immutably! Our guide took us through the rooms that were completed before Ludwig died. The entire castle is a tribute to the legends immortalized in Wagner's operas. The walls are covered with story-telling paintings; ...
We left lovely Rothenburg this morning and hit the autobahn again. Packing up after only one night was hard.
