The road to Disney

Our first day on the road started with a trip to Schloss Neuschwanstein. This castle, created by Mad King Ludwig, served as the inspiration for the Disney castle. There's another neat castle of his, Linderhof, that is nearby. If you're looking to spend a day in southern Bavaria, you can easily visit them both.

Here is a map of the route from Munich to Neuschwanstein. It's actually a pretty short drive from Munich, and could easily be done as a day trip. We didn't spend much time at the castle, but it's not really that impressive inside. Much of it was never finished, and it's really more fun as a hiking destination with great views. This time of year, it was pretty crowded with tourist buses.
