28th Aug., 2009 –the 12nd day – Fussen (Schloss Neuschwanstein) > Fernpass (Austria) > Kronburg > Zams > Innsbruck > Lans
早上起來, 已是下雨天, 但是已到了 Fussen 了, 硬著頭皮都要去廸士尼用它做LOGO的 Schloss Neuschwanstein 天鵝城堡.
Standing in sharp contrast to the bustling metropolises of Germany, Fussen Germany is a remarkable town nestled at the foot of the Bavarian Alps. Despite the town"s comparatively small size–14,357–Fussen tourism is quite strong because of its amazing vistas and the remarkable historic attractions nearby. Two historic castles are also located nearby–Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein Fussen Germany.
Fussen is the highest town in Bavaria, sitting at a lofty 808 meters (2,650 feet) above sea level. The river Lech, originating in Austria, flows through Fussen and adds further magic to the mountain town.
Schloss Neuschwanstein ("New Swan Stone Castle") is one of the most beautiful and famous castles in Germany. Originally ordered to be built by King Ludwig II, this fairy tale castle is the epitome of neo-romantic style. The famous German castle overlooks the picturesque Hohenschwangau valley and is located only a short distance from the popular tourist town, Fussen.
我們到了天鵝城堡山下, 原來是不準開車上的, 只可以坐當地的巴士和馬車上的, 當然要買票付錢的. 我們的車只開到一間酒店的紀念品商店! 便要回駛了, 一眼看到對面山有一坐城堡:
回到停車處, 已經下大雨了, 而等待售票的人是大長龍!! 於是我們決定不去看城堡了. 只在山下拍幾張相算了:
在 Fussen 的一條瀑布:
在歐洲有很多古舊破壞的古堡, 因為維修費用高, 所以如果私人古堡沒有人去做維修的, 也只能掉空, 任由風吹雨打了.
