On my last visit to Schloss Neuschwanstein, I didn’t go up the hill to see the castle because I get bored going inside these kinds of places and you can get a good view of the castle from the road below. So I took my photos and moved on. I did regret it though because I was thinking that you would be able to get some great close up photos of the castle if you take the time to go up the hill. Well, you can’t.
I went back to Schloss Neuschwanstein last month and there is very steep 15 minute (very fast) walk to get up to the castle and once there you can’t see it that well due to the surrounding trees. Being winter, you could make out the castle without any problems but it’s hard to get a good photo. I still didn’t go inside because I knew I’d die of boredom but it wasn’t even worth going up the hill. I’m just glad I walked up and didn’t spend 6 euros on a smelly horse and buggy ride up the hill which took the same time as walking.
At least the weather was better on this trip so I took some more photos. Unfortunately I was still using my old crappy point and shoot camera back then so the photos aren’t that great and I couldn’t get a close up of the schloss. I don’t think there will be a third visit though.
