Fussen is a charming Bavarian town at the end (or beginning) of the Romantic Road. Just about everyone passes through here on their way to Neuschwanstein Castle, but most don’t stop to see what it’s all about.
Nestled in the hills of Bavaria, just above the village of Hohenschwangau, lies a beautiful fairytale castle fit for the pages a story-book. Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned by King Ludwig II in 1869.
Our trip so far has been packed with WWII sites. We’ve been to Auschwitz, The Krakow Ghetto, and Schindler’s Factory.
With so many beer halls/gardens in Munich and only three days in the city, we had to narrow down our options. A German friend highly recommended the Chinesischer Turm beer garden in Munich’s English Garden, so we put it at the top of our list. This place did not disappoint.
In the center of Munich lies one of the largest public parks in Europe. The English Garden is 910 acres of peaceful nature, and you could easily spend half a day here.
After a long travel day; made especially unique by the man sitting next to us who meowed during the entire duration of the flight, we finally made it to Germany. With 6 hours of daylight and a short overnight in Frankfurt, we only had the afternoon to check out the city.

I love this city! Cologne has most definitely been added to my list of favorite places that I’ve been lucky enough to explore. I was fortunate to have been there on a perfectly clear day, and the colors that were brought out by the sun were incredible.
