Schloss Neuschwanstein...Now what?

8:26 AM

Location: The Municipality of Schwangau, Bavaria, Germany

Before moving to our next destination, Passport Out takes you 2-hours south of Munich to check out probably one of the most prominent landmarks in Germany. Yeah, Schloss Neuschwanstein - but hang on a second, have you ever wondered what else is there?

Aside from viewing the Schloss Neuschwanstein, of course...

Don't get me wrong, I could stare at its beautiful architecture all-day but I'm sure there are some awesome places nearby as well! Join us as we take you there!

I'm a huge sucker for beautiful architecture (you guys probably know that already) but I also can't deny the fact that I adore what nature has in store. Alpsee surely closed the deal for me. How can it not? Look at those calm blue waters! A picnic basket and a nice spot on the grass and I'm all-set for the day!

If you thought this part of Germany is just for the Neuschwanstein, well you're wrong buddy. It's also a popular skiing spot! Hop on to that Cable Car and you're good to go. It also gives stunning views of the area. What could get more better than that?!

About 20-minutes from Schloss Neuschwanstein is Steingaden, where the Wies Church is located. You might be wondering what this place of worship has to offer you, well check out its very intricate interiors! That's what. It's one of the oldest surviving Oval Rococo Churches in Germany and is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.   

Schloss Linderhof

In a town at the border of Germany and Austria, where the Alps meet, lies Garmisch where the beautiful Schloss Linderhof is located. It is much more smaller than Schloss Neuschwanstein, but what makes it special is actually its size and how it's a smaller version of the Versailles in France. It is also the only castle that King Ludwig II has seen completed.

What's your favorite place to visit in Bavaria?
