      Schloss Neuschwanstein

      August 28 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 61 °F

      Took a day trip from Munich to Fussen today to see King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle.
      It was another day of multiple transfers. Walk, train, bus, bus, walk. Then repeat. 12,000 steps already. Transportation chewed up a lot of time. The tour is surprisingly short and The views are obv amazing. The bridge spanning the river above the castle has floor boards that have more give than u want lol.

      We’re on the train back to Munich for our last night- heading out early tomorrow by bus to Bolzano to pick up our teeny tiny car and begin our Italian adventure! Stay tuned 💟

      August 29 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

      Heute sind wir schon früh gestartet, damit wir vor allen anderen unterwegs sind 😅 hat sich gelohnt, wir waren fast die ersten, die da waren!
      Haben als ersten Stopp den Lechfall angepeilt und sind dann weiter Richtung Erlebnispfad gewandert und haben da eine kleine Waldlehre gemacht 😄 als Belohnung gab es einen Abstecher in die City zum bummeln.
      Da wir jedoch noch nicht genug hatten sind wir noch etwas weiter gelaufen und haben ein empfohlenes Restaurant aufgesucht - der Tipp hat sich gelohnt & das von dort selbst gebraute Bier wurde ebenfalls eingepackt 🥰🤤
      Morgen geht es zu unserem letzten Stopp auf unserer Reise - die Wasserfälle haben wir alle gesehen & machen noch spontan einen Städtetrip 😍

      Day Five
      We started the day by eating breakfast in the shadow of King Ludwig II's castle, Neuschwanstein. I could not take my eyes off it while eating scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, croissants, and American coffee.
      I read a blog talking about the best places to take pictures of Neuschwanstein. They suggested that the best place to capture the castle was taking a gondola ride to the top of a peak that would give outstanding vista's and different viewing angles of the castle. So we set off and took the gondola to
      Tegelbergbahn. $26 per person. The views were unbelievable. At one point you could see four different mountain ranges, the vast plain before the castle, numbers of beautiful lakes, and towns and villages. However, what we did not see was either castle. The blog said,
      "After the ascent/ascent, you have already reached this wonderful vantage point!"

      There could not be a bigger lie than this. A mountain shielded Neuschwanstein from view. We asked around and were told that we needed to take a trail that would give glimpses of the castle. Bruce and I walked, stepped, and slid down a hiking trail meant only for goats and mountain men. I turned back as we left Linda at the top. We would meet at the parking lot where cars and busses parked. This was breaking a "rule" that we made during the first trip. We do everything Noah style: two by two. As I left Bruce and started making my way back to the top, it seemed that the trail was straight up. At that altitude and being out of shape to climb mountain trails, I was gasping for breath and wondering how in the world I had gotten to this point. I finally made it back to Linda and we took the gondola to the bottom. We picked up Kim at the hotel to meet Bruce when he made his way to "Mary's Bridge" at the base of Neuschwanstein Castle. We finally caught up with Bruce, took some pictures and went to eat at the restaurant where we ate last night. Once again a good meal and desert. It didn't rain until we were at the restaurant.
      We walked the 300 meters to the hotel in the rain. I felt like Gene Kelly in "Singing in the Rain." It was beautiful and magical all at the same time. When we got to the hotel, Kim wasn't ready to say goodbye to Neuschwanstein. So we decided to have hot cocoa and watch the sun set on the mountain and Neuschwanstein castle. We talked and laughed about our fortunes and misfortunes. It was another great day.

      August 22, 2021 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Neuschwanstein Castle is probably the most widely recognized building in Germany. Most of us know that this is the castle that inspired Walt Disney.
      Built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria in the 19th century. For some reason, I had thought this was older. It turns out that Ludwig the Insane (as he was known when he was deposed) wished to recreate medieval chivalry.
      The 1st picture is of the castle from across the valley. The 2nd and 3rd pictures are taken in the entry courtyard.
      Unfortunately, pictures are not allowed inside the castle. So I found 3 postcards together in the shop and took a picture of them. This at least gives you a sense of the decor. It is even more extraordinary. Most of the decor reflects the legends made well known in the Wagnerian operas.

      Schloss Neuschwanstein

      December 16, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 41 °F

      Bucket list ticked off. It was an adventure in itself to get to the castle(s). Bus and a very long walk. My suggestion is to pay the money and have the horses take you up. The tours were short and no photos from inside are allowed which was a shame. But it is really the exterior of the castles that are visually stunning. My photos don’t do any if it justice.Read more


      Is this the castle Harry Potter was designed after?


      That’s the castle from all those puzzles and movies!

      It’s the castle that they used as the idea for Cinderella’s castle at Disneyland. Hogwarts castle was modeled from one in Edinburgh. I will see that one over New Years.

      Romantic Road

      September 15 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

      Day Six
      Today was not a typical "Biggs and Crowder" moving day. Moving day is when we leave one city and move to another. Normally we get started earlier, get out of town with a plan. Not today. Today was a sit and talk kind of day. Not only did we talk amongst ourselves, but the owner and staff were so friendly that breakfast turned into a two hour, 3 cups of Hot Chocolate kind of breakfast. We talked, stared at Neuschwanstein, talked, ate more croissants, and spoke of future trips. We finally said our goodbyes to Annette and the staff. We left to make our way through the cities that are part of the Romantic Road between Fussen and Würzburg. The rains finally caught up with us and we simply made "drive-throughs" instead of "walk-throughs," it was raining so hard.
      We arrived in Rothenburg where we will be staying for the next two nights. Before dinner we did a quick walk-through of the city and decided that will leave the car parked until we leave to go to Frankfurt to fly to Texas. There is so much to accomplish while we are here. Germany's most photographed house is here. Pictures coming tomorrow for that.
      We had another grat meal, Bruce declared "Best Meal of the Trip." I couldn't disagree.
      Getting to bed early. Lots of walking tomorrow.

      Castle de la Graigslist

      June 21 in Germany ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

      Soooo after 6 hours of driving to see this beautiful castle, I had to pay 12 euros for a parking spot. Hell no I'm not making that mistake again, so I went 4 minutes further with my camper in a (hopefully) free spot. Hiked for an hour all the way to the top to see a average impressive castle. I mean graigslist version is maybe a bit over exaggerated but if you see the first picture (this one is from google) and then my pictures you get why I call it a graigslist version, especially after driving for 6 hours to see it. I mean it was nice but I liked the scenery around it more. Beautiful nature. Then I went back to my camper to find out that I had no clue where I put it. So after walking to the wrong parking spot for 17 minutes and then another hour of walking to the right spot (I hoped) I thankfully found my camper. So now I'm omw to buy me some wine and watch a movie after this little adventure!Read more

      Try to reach the summit - Part 1

      July 2, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

      Vom Kreuzeck zur Reintalangerhütte:

      Aus dem Nichts, kommt mir da so eine verrückte Idee - warum nicht einmal auf die Zugspitze "wandern"?! Was denke ich mir da bloß wieder dabei?

      Das www. bietet jede Menge Streckenführungen bis zum Gipfel und so, steht relativ schnell meine Wahlroute fest.

      Da es zur Zeit nicht möglich ist, den landschaftlich besonders reizvollen Weg durch den Partnachklamm zu wandern ( bedingt durch eine verheerende Hochwasserkatastrophe im Juni bis auf Weiteres gesperrt ), fällt die Entscheidung auf die Alternativroute vom Kreuzeck über die Reintalangerhütte, weiter zur Knorrhütte und dann final, bis zum höchsten Gipfel Deutschlands - für mich eine Dreitagestour!

      Es ist Abend und das Tagesziel, die Reintalangerhütte, ist nach vierzehn Kilometern erreicht - ich bin platt!

      Liest man über diese Etappe, werden immer wieder vier Stunden Gehzeit dafür veranschlagt - ja klar, prima!

      Bei mir sind sieben Stunden daraus geworden - willkommen im wahren Leben! Gut, zieht man die ganzen Pausen ab, fällt eine Stunde weg - das Entscheidende aber, ist der Weg selbst!


      Von der Talstation der Kreuzeckbahn, fahren Godeln in wenigen Minuten zum "Hausberg" von Garmisch auf 1651 m ü. NHN - bequem, aber mit 17,50 € kein preiswertes Vergnügen!

      Von dort, führt der sehr gut ausgebaute Weg in rund dreißig Minuten zur Hochalm ( 1705 m ü. NHN ) - danach wird es ein wenig kompliziert! Die Wegweiser sind nicht eindeutig und gezieltes Nachfragen auf der bewirtschafteten Hochalm, bring nur widersprüchliches Geplapper!

      Unglaublich aber wahr, niemand von der Belegschaft hat je im Leben von der Reintalangerhütte gehört. Immerhin, einer der meist frequentierten Hütten im ganzen Zugspitzgebiet! Tja, so ist das manchmal mit den Eingeborenen - ohne weiteren Kommentar!

      Natürlich habe ich mir den heutigen Streckenabschnitt mit seinen Zwischenstationen, schon gründlich bei Google Maps angeschaut und notiert!

      Bring trotzdem nichts, wenn Schilder zweideutig sind, bzw. für das nächste Etappenziel ( Bockhütte ) zwei verschiedene Wege angezeigt werden!

      Um die Dramaturgie der Geschichte am Laufen zu halten - ich habe mich "selbstverständlich" für den deutlich längeren Weg entschieden.

      Egal, alles fürs Figürle! Nach drei "furchtbaren" Stunden, in denen es mit höchster Konzentration auf den Weg, ausschließlich bergab ging, ist die DAV-Hütte ( 1052 m ü. NHN ) endlich erreicht - nach knapp 700 Höhenmeter bergab, ein "Festtag" für die Kniegelenke!

      Die etwas längere Pause tut gut - ein alkoholfreies Hefeweizen und ein großes Spezi, sind in diesem Augenblick die besten Getränke der Welt!

      Auf mein Nachfragen beim Hüttenwirt, wie lange der sechs Kilometer lange Marsch zu meinem Tagesziel wohl dauern wird, meint dieser "zwei Stunden" - na ja, dann sagen wir mal eher drei!

      Die Landschaft, ist so grandios wie das sonnige Wetter - ein wenig entschädigt das natürlich für den bevorstehenden Weg, der jetzt weitere dreihundert Höhenmeter, stetig bergauf führt!

      Zuerst einige Zeit parallel an der Partnach entlang, dann ein langes Stück durch Wald, bis der Wildwasserfluß wieder zu sehen ist - diesmal tief unter mir, gespeist vom beeindruckenden Partnachfall, der schon von Weitem zu hören ist.

      Nach fast drei Stunden mühsamen Trekking, steht plötzlich völlig unerwartet "um die Ecke" mein Tagesziel - direkt an der eiskalten Partnach gelegen, kommt mit diversen Sitzmöglichkeiten am Fluß, fast so etwas wie chilliges "Beach-Feeling" auf.

      Das "Highlight" der Reintalanger-Hütte, ist zweifelsohne die persönliche Liegefläche in den Matratzenlagern der Schlafsäle - kein Witz, maximal sechzig Zentimeter breit!

      Da ist heute Nacht wohl "kuscheln" angesagt 🥳🥳🥳!

      De wandeling ernaar toe was op 13 km voorzien, maar het werden er (bloedhete) 20,5 omwille van een afgesloten brug 🙈Read more
