Castle Hoheschwangau... or something like that...
The "you are here" sign in front of Neuschwanstein
...and in the tallest room of the tallest tower...
Viewed from the courtyard, the only tree that stands within the castle grounds. The curious numbers and clock are for the guided tours
Surprisingly, this castle was never used for the purpose of defence
It was difficult to capture the essence of it in a single photo, because trees just kept getting in the way
Ok, I promise... this is the LAST silly, immature poke at the German language
As you can see, there was snow all around us and the white castle is very well camoflaged...
Kyle, who we met at the pub in the wombat hostel, goes for the time trial title... his time... umm... infinity seconds
The very friendly bar tender has a photo with 'da boys and their beer mugs
The next day, we went to Dachau... the infamous concentration camp
Barbed wire fence and ditch, designed to keep people in... curiously similar to Australia's own detention centres
This pleasant looking building was the crematorium/gas chamber
Just like they said, there were fake shower heads in the roof and signs everywhere saying disinfection room... walking through it just sent shivers down my spine
These are giant ovens... for people. Many were executed right in front of them, to save the trouble of having to carry the dead bodies across the campsite
