We arrived after an overnight flight to Munich in the morning. We are staying in an apartment and got checked in by midday. Before long we were out walking around to see the sites. It was rainy, but nice. These shots were taken from the bell tower of St. Peter’s church.
There are many, many churches in Munich and many of them are Catholic. I feel right at home :-).
Today we went on a tour to Neuschwanstein, the castle build by King Ludwig in Bavaria. I have wanted to see this castle since I was a girl so it was great fun. Below is Mario, our guide.
We stopped at two lovely churches, one Baroque and one Rococo, on the way to the castle.
Neuschwanstein is the castle that Cinderella’s castle at Disneyworld is based on.
If you are interested in the castle, you can find better photos than I took online. The best shots are from from the bridge behind the castle that is closed for repairs. Deep sighs on our part. No matter—it was a beautiful day, no rain, cool weather, and great company!
We stopped for cheese, sausage, and beer at a cheese farm on the way back to Munich. I’ve never seen cows this color before… they were more taupe than brown. They all wore bells and it was fun to sit by them as we ate a late lunch.
Tomorrow we head to Salzburg!
Thanks for sharing your trip with us. Enjoyed the photos!
You got some really great pictures, I love that last one of the white bush! Hope your trip is wonderful!
Have a great time! Was that Elderberry?
You should have stopped by at my house. I live an hour from Munich. Salzburg is wonderful. My son works there at a hotel. Have a great time
About the cows — they are very familiar to me as I grew up on a dairy farm with this breed. They are called Brown Swiss in the US; don’t know what they are called in Europe, where they are more common
Good to know. Thanks!
