Day 5: Neuschwanstein and Wieskirche

We started the day with a trip to the Neuschwanstein castle, a beautiful castle built by a Bavarian king who was young and who spent way too much money. We walked up a big hill to get there, and the views were amazing. The castle was absolutely stunning, but we were not allowed to take pictures. Like a lot of the places here, it was filled with gilded architecture and religious paintings. Though living in these castles would be pretty nice, they did not have wifi, modern plumbing, modern medicine, or electricity. When you think about it that way, most people today really do live better than kings and queens of the past.

After this, we then ate some lunch at a nice place called the Chapeau in a town called Fussen. I got a shrimp flatbread, which was very good. The food here is very good and very filling. I was expecting it to be like french food, which is very small, but it is the exact opposite, which is a pleasant surprise.

After eating, we then went to the Wierskirche, a beautiful church. It continued to followed the theme of gilded architecture and religious paintings. The ceilings were very tall, and it was beautiful. It is amazing how these churches were gigantic buildings that only contain one room. It really goes to show how devoted the people were to god and christianity.
