Neuschwanstein castle! So pretty

Today was the day that we were signed up for the tour of the Neuschwanstein castle. Unfortunately we had to be up at 7:30 in order to get to the train station on time and we didn't get back to the hostel until 4:30am. So I was very much hung over/still drunk and it was very hard to actually get up and make it into the shower and to the train station. But luckily we did make it:) We had 4 bitchy room mates from Toronoto who got mad when we woke up because their one friend got angry if she didn't get enough sleep. WTF don't be in a hostel DORM if you have to get sufficient sleep. Anyways by time we took the train and then took a bus we got to the village where the Neuschwanstein castle is around 12ish but our tour time for the castle wasn`t until 2:45 so we had some time to kill. We went and saw the smaller castle that King Ludwig had built and lived in while he was waiting for the other castle to be built.

  Then we took the bus all the way up the hill and walked to the Marienbrucke bridge. It was a really sweet view of the castle and we got a picture with this guy who was dressed up in a cool german type costume but we didn`t pay him like you`re supposed to hehe. Inside the castle was pretty sweet, but it wasn`t that great. I mean it was really nice and everything but you get hearded through there soo fast and our tour guide lady really quiet so we couldn`t really hear her and she had a weird like asian-german accent so it was also hard to understand her. But it was really pretty inside the castle and it was cool to hear all about crazy kind ludwig. By time we got back to Munich it was around 7:45pm and we were supposed to meet Allison at 8:00!! So right away we decided to head to Wombats to see if we could meet her at a later time but luckily we ran into her in the street and we decided to meet up at 9:30 instead.

So we got dinner at a little restaurant that was across the street from the Wombats hostel and it was really yummy. Then we went back to our hostel to get our stuff together as we were leaving the next morning. We went back to Wombats at 9:30 but Allison wasn`t there so we went to an internet cafe to check our e-mails etc. When we went back to Wombats again we finally got in contact with Allison. We wern`t really up to drinking again so we just had some pop and visited. We called it a semi-early night and went back to the hostel. We ran into some of the guys from the first night at the Haufbrahaus and talked to them for a bit but then we just went to bed. So that was our time in Munich and it was really fun!

This hostel was a pretty decent hostel. Fairly clean in general. Our room was very large and clean with an ensuite bathroom with a very clean shower. … read entire review
