Neuschwanstein Monday 6/9/08

We left Garmish Partenkirchen on a clear sunny day and had a beautiful drive thru the Alps to this Fairy Tale Castle in Southern Bavaria. You then hike about 40 minutes up a steep trail thru the forest, wait an hour or so for your turn, then take a 30 minute guided tour thru this incredible palace.

After the tour - 25 minutes or so back down the trail and we were on the road around 1pm for our next stop Rothenburg ob der Tauber (on the Tauber) Germany. Rothenburg odt was a 180 mile – 2 hour flight up the Autobahn.

Rothenburg is considered the best preserved medieval city in Europe and of course was a lot of fun (not) trying to navigate the maze of cobblestone streets inside the city walls – thru the crowds – trying to find our hotel. After the normal amount of passing the same place twice we found our home for the next 2 nights.
