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. As we drive to our next destination, we listen to his podcast along the way, and when we get to our there, we have a sense of the city or area we're about to explore! Educational, interesting, and a fun way to pass the time as we drive.
... Marble stairs, a giant chandelier with venetian glass stones and paintings from Wagner operas. Nearly 1.5 million mosaic tiles make up the floor, and it is stunning! Probably the most intricate feature of the tour was King Ludwig's bed, which features a canopy of spires that took a considerable time to build.

It was also a modern marvel for its time with central heating, plumbing including water to a facet fashioned as a swan, and a fully functional kitchen. Gifts even more elaborate than ...
... pretty interesting and more modern than I expected. King Ludwig II lived in a fantasy and the interior of the castle reflected it. The tour guide was pretty interesting as well and it seemed like he had learned English from count Dracula while living in Ireland. The castle is one of the top tourist attractions in Germany and it also has a bit of romance. Perfect Valentines day.
