Castle Neuschwanstein, Bavaria, Germany

Ludwig II’s fairy tale castle, as it is sometimes called is the climax to the “Romantic Road” trip through southern Germany into Bavaria. Autumn was in full blaze when we arrived the evening before. Snow was forecasted to be moving in and the small town of Schwangau, we decided to stay in, was completely fogged in. The next morning of our planned trip to the “fairy tale”  castle didn’t look to promising with everything still fogged in. I guess the weather gods heard our cry for clear passage, for by noon the skies had cleared into a beautiful blue day, which allowed us to hike higher into the mountains above the castle and catch this shot. Made you feel like you were in a dream, sitting on top of the world.

  1. Beautiful place. Truly special. The Alps in the background and ornate nature of the place. Just gorgeous.

    • Sounds like you’ve been there. Can’t believe we hit it in such a small window of increment weather. This one is luck and no chance for a repeat.

  2. I looks like you picked the perfect day for your hike because your photo is beautiful. You were so lucky that the fog cleared…I was there recently when the fog obscured the castle and totally covered the valley.

    • I woke up that morning looked outside at all the fog and climbed back into bed thinking “no sense getting up you can’t see anything.” A few hours later magically it disappeared. Lucky was all it was.
