Neuschwanstein castle & Trip to Rothenburg

Today was our castle day. We rented a car and headed for Neuschwanstein Castle. For once, living at 8,000 feet elevation paid off...it was a 40 min walk uphill and then another 15 min walk to the bridge...uphill. Mom and Greta are feeling it. I’m ok.
After our climb and tour we went to the little town of Schwangau for Apple streusel. There was a small working dairy right in the middle of town so of course I had to pet the cow. This trip has had a series of animals begging to be pet.

We drove back to Munich and it was straight to bed.

The next morning (today), we got in the car and made our way to Rothenburg. It’s an old walled city with a preserved medieval wall. We had a little refreshment and dinner and then joined the 8 pm Night Watchman's tour. It was a combo of history and ghost stories. It was really cool!
