Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau

This was a very touristy day of our trip.  We visited a very well known and photographed castle, Neuschwanstein and the castle Hohenschwangau, the childhood home of King Ludwig II.  We had visited the castle Neuschwanstein a couple of times before when we lived in Germany years ago, but Hohenschwangau was a first for Jackson and me.  I actually think I liked the Hohenschwangau castle tour more.  The guide was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions, no rush.  The Neuschwanstein was much more touristy this year, if that is possible.  It was a cloudy overcast day, so all the more typical views of and from the castle were obscured by clouds, but both castles were impressive, and a must see for any tourist in the area.  Lots of Bavarian history here.

Here are some photos (and I have lots) of the Neuschwanstein:









Here are some of Hohenschwangau:
















And this one because I just like it so much, is the view on the walk down from the Hohenschwangau castle, you can see the town below.
