Neuschwanstein - the castle of Ludwig II

A short trip to the Neuschwanstein castle.

DB - Deutsche Bahn offers excellent ticket for a day trip to Bavaria region. The ticket is valid from 2 up to 8 people. It costs 28 Euro for a couple of people and it is valid for regional trains and public transport.
I've already used it a few times. This time I went to Neuschwanstein.  The castle was built by Ludwig II in nineteenth century. Till now I saw it only on Walt Disney's logo. The town near the castle is charming. Old buildings with painting on the walls.  I took a bus and left it near the castle and went for a hike. I found different, well marked routes up to the castle. Apart from the castle there is also a bridge probably as famous as the castle. It's an excellent view. If you seek adrenaline you should try paragliding over the castle and have the view only for yourself. For people who do not like hiking and would like to see the castle there are boat cruises on the lake.
