The Fairytale Castle.....but no Mickey Mouse!
May 24, 2008
What we saw today was unbeliveable. It is Castle Neuschwanstein which is in Fussen Germany at the end of the Romantic Road. This is the castle that Walt Disney based his Magic Kingdom after. We started our day off with a horse and buggie ride up the hill to where the castle was. We had great seats in the carriage ride. Front row seats with an amazing view of the forrest with the castle peeking over the tress only bad thing was the horses had gas. Take the bad with the good I guess. We got a personally guided tour thorugh the castle which included a theatre he built in the castle as well as a pathway thorugh the wall that was designed to look like you were inside a cave. We werent allowed any pics inside the castle but were allowed to take some of the views from the castle so enjoy those at least. Oh ya and after our tour throughthe castle we hiked in the forrest for three hours, very fun!!! And our hike finished with a gerat view of the city and the castle and a sweet score on two walking sticks I might add!
