BEN IS 34!??! OFF TO SEE THE "DISNEY" CASTLE
Fuessen is the home of Neuschwanstein Castle, built by King Ludwig II (the “mad” king) in the 1800’s. It is the castle Walt Disney designed the Disneyland castle after and is also the castle you most often see in German tourism pictures. After dropping off our bags, we headed for Marienbruke (Marien Bridge) to get the easily accessible view of Neuschwanstein Castle. It is pretty awesome!
Rick Steves talks about the trail that goes beyond and up the mountain past the bridge, so we headed up, where we had some spectacular views.
