This morning we woke up a bit early, and got on the road by 9:00 am. First up was Neuschwanstein Castle. We were on a tight schedule, and didn’t have time to tour the castle, but we wanted to at least so for a photo opportunity.
We paid for parking and walked around the village below the castle. We walked around the lower castle and could have easily spent an entire day there.
Then we were off, headed to the worlds longest Alpine slide in Imst.
We luckily had a malfunction in our vehicles GPS. As we were driving down the road we were told to make a U-turn. This fortunate mistake took us the back way into Imst, over the Alps. I’ll add pictures later, as I was driving I couldn’t take any pictures with my phone. The closest thing I can compare it to is the train ride though Whites Pass between the Yukon Territory and Scagway Alaska.
Long story short, we got to the slide and they were closed.
They only open 7 days a week starting in July, they are only open Thursday to Sunday right now.
We made up for it by going for a hike in Imst.
We headed for home disappointed and happened upon Ehrenburg Castle.
What an amazing time! We got to get up close and personal with castle ruins. And bonus: they were open until 10:00 pm!
We are packing up in the morning and headed through the Black Forrest to our next site.
