Appreciation Sunday #9
The castle of Hohenschwangau: Even though we did not have the chance to take a tour through Neuschwanstein yet, my mother and I took one through Hohenschwangau - the castle where Ludwig II. had spent his childhood.
The tour was set in the evening as the last one for that day and it took almost two hours. I was actually quite surprised about how much I liked it, because people rarely talk about this place compared to Neuschwanstein. If you have the time to see both castles, you should not let this opportunity go to waste!
Silence: Hohenschwangau is a very busy and touristy place. Every day tons of tourists come to see the castles, but the good news? That's it. Everything else can be enjoyed almost in absolute silence without many other encounters. You only have to take one turn left and suddenly you're away from all that bustle. We were a bit worried when we arrived, but now we are quite satisfied with our location.
We are going to stay in Hohenschwangau until next Saturday, so stay tuned for more in the upcoming days.
