Austrian Alps

Just a beautiful day in the Alps! 

I had been keeping my eyes open for this kind of scene for quite some time, but not being the driver, I was out of luck on several occasions. However we finally did stop outside of this small village and the scene was just breathtaking!

Neuschwanstein Castle

While I was in Austria and during our travels we ventured into Germany and visited the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. It is a 19th century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hilltop above the village of Hohenschwangau. It was built for King Ludwig II in order for him to withdraw from public life. 7 weeks after his death in 1886, it opened to the public.
