Munich – December 2016

The final leg of our journey took us from Innsbruck to Munich. Once again, we chose an amazing scenic route, this time through the Alps over Fernpass to two castles, Hohenschwangau castle and Neuschwanstein Castle, one of the most famous castles in Europe and the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle in the Disney Resorts (and many other fictional castles since). From there, we drove the “Romantic Road” to Landsberg am Lech, a small town on the Lech River, where we had a quick lunch before heading to our final destination, Munich. Once there, we explored the central city and Old Town, including our last Christmas market and a huge Winter Festival, held on the same festival grounds as the famous Oktoberfest, and had our last authentic German meals (one more schnitzel and bratwurst!).
