Today we decided to spend some talking walking the streets of Fussen, Germany. We rely heavily on Rick Steve's guides when we travel in Europe. One of the things we like best are his self-guided walking tours.

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 ...
Today was the big castle day - off to Neuschwanstein! Mike and Colette were surprised by how high up it is and the collective effort it takes in getting people up there. This is not a one hour tourist stop and certainly not for someone who is disabled. It is worth the effort though because the views are spectacular of the little towns and the lake below. We had a guided tour through the parts of the castle ...
