Deutschland Day 5

Awoke to a spectacular view surrounded by the Bavarian Alps which escaped us under the cover of night on arrival the day prior. I would never tire of such a view. Started the day with a Bavarian Breakfast which consisted of two Weisswurst, a pretzel, and a tall beer. It was exceptional. I added a croissant and coffee which my bladder did not appreciate. Then off to Schloss Neuschwanstein, which inspired the Disney castle. Unfortunately, it was almost as commercialized as Disney. To boot the only way inside was by guided tour with the next one several hours away, severely impacting our other plans. The infrequent tour schedule would have been helpful information had it been listed in our guide book. We opted to tour the outside and then headed to Austria for our next stop- The Highline 179 bridge and the ruins of Ehrenburg Castle. Highline 179 is the worlds longest suspension bridge that connects two areas of castle ruins and provides breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys near Reutte, Tyrol, Austria.
