6. The Bavarian Alps.

Although my views go down in beauty with the Swiss and Austrian Alps, they are certainly noteworthy. Through the Bavarian Alps, through mountain villages and romantic castles, the Alpine route, known in German as the Deutsche Alpenstrasse, offers travelers endless views. Surrounded by alpine valleys for about 450 km, this road has 25 impressive castles and monasteries and many lakes. Numerous hiking programs and excursions in the Bavarian Alps. In winter it is a paradise for skiing enthusiasts.

5 Schloss Hohenschwangau Castle.

   Schloss Hohenschwangau (Hohenschwangau Castle) is one of the four famous castles attributed to the "mad" King Ludwig of Bavaria. Hohenschwangau is the smallest of the four eccentric pieces of Ludwig, but it has a special, cozy atmosphere that sets it apart from the other three palaces, which are slightly cooler and more formal. Until the 16th century Hohenschwangau Castle served as Knight of Schwangau Township. Destroyed by many wars, Hohenschwangau was eventually replaced by Maximilian II, King of Bavaria, the most eccentric father of King Louis II of Bavaria, after changing several masters. Visiting the castle is only possible with a guided tour in German and English. Admission for adults costs € 12. Paying 23 euros will give you the opportunity to visit the nearby Neuschwanstein Castle. For those who are lazy to climb the hill on which this castle is located, a two-horse carriage can be lifted for 3 euros. By the way, just a few kilometers away is the most famous Bavarian castle Neuschwanstein.

4. Neuschwanstein Castle.

According to travel agencies, “The beautiful Neuschwanstein Castle (Neuschwanstein) stands in the Bavarian Alps. It is one of the most beautiful castles in Germany and throughout Europe. ”

In my opinion, this is certainly not the most beautiful castle in Germany, but more so in Europe. It is the most beautiful castle in Bavaria, and I think no one will argue with that. This is how it looks spectacular in a bird's eye view of postcards. After seeing the bird's eye view of this castle, this was the nail in my travels, but when I saw it, I was really disappointed to see the child receiving the wrong gift at Christmas. So we bought our tickets and climbed to the castle, and by the way for 5 euros you can take a horse-drawn carriage. It takes about a kilometer to climb, smelling horse sweat and manure all the way. Well, pessimistic time for optimism will suffice 🙂. The towers and towers of Neuschwanstein Castle open before you.

Neuschwanstein pilis (Neuschwanstein castle)    Neuschwanstein Castle (Neuschwanstein Castle). 1861 As the eighteen-year-old Ludwig II sat on the throne of Bavaria, he soon began to build this magnificent castle on a hill in the Bavarian Alps. Right next to their parents' castle. Inspired by the legends, as well as Richard Wagner's operas, which embody German legends, Ludwig designed a habitat with towers, pointed turrets. Its interior is decorated with not only one but several elaborate styles. The ruler enjoyed the fairy tale castle for a short time - just 100 days after moving into it, he was declared an unlawful king and evicted to his next home where he later mysteriously died. Seven weeks after King Louis II died in 1886. Nesswantstein was opened to the public. The shy king built a castle to retire from public life - now many people come to see his former private refuge.

  Anyone else remember the Walt Disney Pictures logo that appears before each movie? That's how Neuschwanstein Castle so fascinated Volta Disney that he picked it up a bit with his logo.

3. Lindau and Lake Constance 

   Lindau is a town located at the border of three states: Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The historic town of Lindau is of the same name and only 0.68 square kilometers, with a single bridge and a railway connecting the lake. The city itself is no different from other Bavarian cities, and the island's old town is truly spectacular. Car traffic on the island is severely restricted. The Old Town of Lindau is rich in parks with a variety of flowers and palm trees. Plenty of cafes and restaurants. The Swiss take a steamboat to Lindau's restaurants and return late in the evening. Like Finns to Tallinn. The Lindau celebrity is the port gate with a lighthouse on one side and a Bavarian lion on the other.

If you are an artistic soul, Nuremberge must visit The 15th-century Albrecht Durer House, where the famous German Renaissance artist lived since 1509. Until his death in 1528. Now a museum dedicated to the life and work of Albrecht Dürer, Dürer was known for his printed maps - the building has copies of some of his works. Next to his house is a pub where people of the artistic soul gather. You probably won't find any free tables, but don't despair. People buy beer and have a € 3 deposit on the mug, sipping their beer while sitting on the floor or on the Rabbit statue. Der Hase  In Lithuanian, just a Rabbit statue depicts a crazy bronze rabbit stumbling and crushing at least one person. Tourists consider it to be the most hideous statue they have ever seen.

  1. Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

   About 10 thousand. Rothenburg ob der Tauber is one of many attraction centers in Bavaria. In my opinion, it is the most beautiful city in Bavaria. Tourists from all over the world flock to Rothenburg to feel the spirit of the Middle Ages, because of its preserved architecture, defensive fortifications and thriving wine culture, Rothenburg at Tauber has retained its breath-taking atmosphere. It is only strange to me why Lithuanian travel agencies do not travel to this wonderful city. Rothenburg-Tauber is just an hour's drive from Nuremberg. I noticed that Rothenburg-Tauber has the most tourists from Japan.
Nowhere else did the Middle Ages survive as well as here. Or maybe just time stopped here? Walking through the Old Town and exploring old houses, quiet squares and corners, towers, fountains, gates, fortifications, vaults and wineries. When walking around this beautiful city, be sure to come to the café to order coffee and have their branded snack snowball"(Schneeball). If you travel to Rotenburg to Tauber and you won't eat 'snow snowballs "Will read that you haven't visited this spectacular town. 

Rotenburgas prie Tauberio“Snow snowballs"(Schneeball).  Rothenburg-Tauber   This type of pastry was known at least 300 years ago and was only served on special occasions such as weddings, christenings and the like.

What visit Rotenburgr at Tauber? It's hard to say, the whole town is filled with the Middle Ages. The entire town is surrounded by a defensive wall, which can be climbed and viewed from above. The Market Square (Marktplatz), the former central part of the city, remains the same to this day. There is a town hall and a tower with a clock running around the square.

If you are lucky enough to see a street show as well.

If it's possible to visit Rothenburg-Tauber in the best way possible in May, the Meistertrunk Festival is taking place. This is an annual tradition of the city - "Meistertrunk". The festival dates back to history, when, during the "Thirty Years" legend, one resident bet on a city conqueror that he would drink three liters of wine in one go and save Rothenburg from being burned.
