... Sebastian's where we could find tombstones dates back to the early 1700's - WOW! We then head to the Franciscan Monastery (yep, there's still a few monks there leading the flock). From there, we were able to see the Church of St. Magnus and the High Castle (this was the former residence of the Bishops of Augsburg). We took a quick turn here, and interestingly, ended up finding the End of the Romantic Road (a beautiful stretch of Bavaria between Frankfurt and Munich ...
... 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.

Although the interior was not completed before the king's questionable death after he was declared mad, what was finished was almost as breathtaking ...
... the girls went shopping. The boys were left with the task of getting bread and cheese to have with our wine. Failed miserably as no one sold cheese. We settled for chills and nuts. Back to the rooms where the girls were ready and waiting. Girls had a Marlborough sav Blanc while the boys has an Australian Shiraz and a Spanish Temperrilo. Downloaded the cameras and Gopro from the last two days. Time now 10.00 and everyone is exhausted. Off to Wolfgansee ...
