Fussen, and the castles
After the delivery, we headed towards Fussen and to our hotel (Best in town in terms of view and price, IMO), Hotel Mueller! It was a rainy day unfortunately, but it didn't make a difference...the car drove immaculately, and the scenery was astounding!
official "bimmerfest" pic location:
Checked into the hotel, got some lunch, and then onto the castles...nice 10min walk to the Hohenschwangau was first:
the view was spectacular:
After a tour, it was time to head to the main attraction in town.... the Neuschwanstein castle:
the bridge view was amazing, and the waterfall beneath it was beauty at its best:
is there a more beautiful place on earth?
the next morning was time to say goodbye to Fussen and our hotel:
and onto the highlight of the trip.....
what else can I say here. Last time I did the Stelvio Pass and I thought I had seen it all, but words cannot describe how beautiful the ride towards Luzern via the Klausenpass really is.
I will let the pics do the talking:
approaching the initial decent close to linthau:
initial climbing stage:
Middle of the climb.... most magnificent place on earth I've been to! Holy GOD!
after a nice lunch break/picnic on the flowers, breathing the alpine air and hearing nothing but a light wind and cowbells, in a crisp and magestic 56deg F weather, we proceeded to go up:
words cannot describe this:
somewhat cheesy pic my wife took, but I was just taking it all in...we were about 1000ft from the top:
to really capture the essence of where this spot was, I had to make a video...it's short, but it will give you an idea of the magnificence of this place:
continued onto the top of the mountain...just amazing
finally reached the top of the Klausenpass:
