Even the “little brother” castle right near by, Schloss Hohenschwangau has a certain gorgeous charm about it that you just can’t find in just any old place. I liked the entire experience very much, even the climb to get to Neuschwanstein seemed in retrospect not so bad after all!
After our trip down to these castles, we proceeded to Mittenwald, a quaint little town on the foot of the Alps. With all the amenities of modernity, this little town with crystal clear waters and such beauty that would’ve transcended description if it wasn’t just raining the whole time I was there. Hence the raincoats. And I do love so the violin maker with his BLUE violin and the luxuriant mustache. And I did feel a slight pang as I left, as this was the only hotel which really did have a homey atmosphere.
