We left the Ibis Hotel in Bregnez, Austria and headed towards the German border, criss crossing back into Austria from time to time as we drove through some amazing mountain ranges. The views were amazing from the top of the mountains and we took lots of pictures. We were
heading in the rough direction of Fussen, Germany, home of Neuschwanstein Castle, which we arrived at just after 3pm, and annoyingly ticket sales closed at 3pm. We drove the short distance to Schwangau and eventually found a hotel (Helmerhof – www.helmerhof.de). The picture above is the view from our window, you can see the castle if you look closely. Tomorrow morning we will return to the castle, have a look round and then head in the direction of Luxemberg. My brother will be excited to know that the castle we can see from our hotel window (and will be visiting tomorrow) is the very castle featured in the film ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’.
