Day 17 – From Füssen to Munich

We left Fussen the next morning for Munich. Our hotel suggested that we take a slight detour through Austria and visit another of Ludwig’s castles. The detour was brilliant and we made a few stops to admire the scenery along the way while the weather was good.20130629-190859.jpg

At one point a Porsche club made its way past us. Darcy snapped these pictures out the window of the car without stopping. Nice cars and a nice view.

We also saw a lot of motorcyclists out for a ride. My favorite ride to date was the road to Hana, but this road would likely have taken second place.

We visited Linderholf Castle briefly while the weather was still decent before planning to head to Partnach Gorge near Garmisch; however, the weather turned and we decided to head directly to Munich instead.

Having already paid twice to view the opulence of Ludwig’s castles, we opted to limit ourselves to the parking fee, walk around the outside and enjoy the park.

“I bet you can’t catch me!”

“Yup, you’re right…”

Like I mentioned earlier, then the weather changed.  We had had avoided the rain for most of our vacation until today.

Luckily, once we arrived in Munich the clouds parted and we enjoyed walking around the old city in the sun for a few hours.
