Munich: Part 4

by donnamh92

After the Third Reich Tour we went for a walk around the Englischer Garten which was beautiful, especially with the lovely weather.  We were looking for the river surfers on my brother’s recommendation but didn’t really know where we were going!P1000365 P1000368P1000372 P1000374 P1000375 P1000376
The next morning it was an early start for our bus tour to see the royal castles.  Our first stop was Linderhof, the smallest of Ludwig II’s three royal castles built in the 19th century.  The grounds were absolutely beautiful and in my opinion the inside was nicer than the more famous Neuschwanstein.  The guided tour was really good but no pictures were allowed inside.  It was decorated with a lot of gold and intricate details everywhere.P1000385P1000387P1000393 P1000394P1000396 P1000397 P1000398 P1000399 P1000400


We then drove on for a while before a short break in Oberammergau which is famous for its wood carving and painted houses.  It was like a fairy tale town, I loved it!  The shops were full of intricately carved ornaments, clocks, furniture, animals etc but all I bought was a tiny wooden heart!

I am going to try to squeeze Neuschwanstein itself and the last few days into one final post because I feel I’m going on about Munich too much with too many photos! Thank god it was only a week away!
