  Schloss Hohenschwangau

Schloss Hohenschwangau is the older of the 2 castles. One could say it is the ancestral castle, since King Ludwig's parents lived there. It is known for the figure of a dove on top of one of its towers.

Going up, we took the fastest (but "steepest") path in our excitement and haste to see the inside of the castle. Midway, there is a couple of benches where you can rest and marvel in the beauty below you. Going down, we took the path designed for a more leisurely pace which was a wise decision as it led us toward the lake.

Address: Fussen
Directions: From Fussen train station, take a bus going to the castles. The bus' last stop is at the foot of the mountain where the castle is located. From there, it's walk, walk, walk. Oopps, I mean, walk up the hill.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
