Munich: Part 4
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!
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.
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!
