Nuremberg, Germany

Took a day trip to Nuremberg. We walked around the Nazi Party Rally Grounds and museum, then we headed up to the castle. After that we just walked around the beautiful city center.

Füssen and the Neuschwanstein castle

Last weekend I planned a trip to the city of Füssen which is about a 45 min hike to the world famous Neuschwanstein castle. We got there Sunday morning and walked around  town for a couple hours until we came across a park with great snow to make a snowman!

The next day we woke up early, grabbed breakfast at the local bakery, and started our short hike to the castle. We booked our tickets a couple days before, so we knew we had to be at the ticket center by 11am in order to take the castle tour.

This was my second time visiting this castle (last time was 2 years ago on my summer trip around Europe), but I’m so glad I got to experience it with snow everywhere!

Tegernsee

Last weekend we went to Tegernsee, a lake about 45 min south of Munich. When we got there we went to a bakery and a cheese shop and gathered supplies for our picnic. We set up shop at a table right next to the lake and enjoyed the scenic views for a couple hours. Afterwards we rented an electric boat for 14 euros/hr and wandered around the lake. It’s definitely a great day trip for anyone in the Munich area!
