My ticket to Neuschwanstein!

The real entry date for this journal entry should be May 20, 2005

 

The main reason we decided on taking this first tour was the fact that it would take us to Neuschwanstein Castle and give us a tour.  Believe it or not, there are tours you can take that basically drive past and point it out but don’t stop!  That wasn’t for us.

 

So postcards were a mandatory here.  I had to get several, both summer and winter, inside and out.

 

And I even found a nice little miniature to bring home too.  It takes a small votive candle inside to light up the windows.  I have a collection of miniature fantasy castles to add it to. 

 

Because they didn't allow photos in the castle I also purchased the large photo book of the castle entitled "The Royal Castle of Neuschwanstein".  The original photos were taken by Klaus and Wilhelm Kienberger. I have taken photos of the wonderful pictures in the book and included them here.

I'm addicted to jigsaw puzzles and I have two of this castle...one in the summer, the other in winter.
