Beautiful Bavaria!

After leaving Venice, we took a 7 hour train ride to Munich arriving late.



  After some much need sleep, we hopped a train in the morning to Hohenschwangau, Germany.  This is the village where King Ludwig had his family hunting retreat.


Hohenschwangau Castle.



Here's the view from the window.



This castle was not good enough for Ludwig so he built another next door.  This one was designed around Wagner operas and was the basis for the castle in Sleeping Beauty.

Back in Munich at the Hofbrauhaus


We ended the long day with some Michael Jackson!
