Christmas Part I – Füssen, Germany 2016.

Füssen, Germany - Christmas 2016.

Füssen, Germany – Christmas 2016.

I got back from my trip to Füssen and Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Germany late Tuesday night and thought I’d do a couple of quick posts before I procrastinate and never get around sharing. If you’re ever looking for somewhere to spend a few days, whatever the time of year, both places are beautiful and well worth a visit.

This post is Part I of my Christmas experience in Germany and looks solely at Füssen. Füssen is a lovely Bavarian town at the very southern most tip of the famous Romantic Road, just north of the Austrian border and right beside the Alps. Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle lie south-east of the town. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to go into the castles but made the journey up to Marienbrücke or ‘Marys Bridge’ where we were afforded a fabulous view of Neuschwanstein Castle and the surrounding lakes, towns and countryside.

It’s not going to be a wordy post, just a few snaps taken from my time there. Hope you enjoy them and if you have any questions, please ask, hopefully, I’ll be able to help. Seasons greetings. Adele. x

Füssen town, though not as pretty as Rothenburg, has a certain charm of its own and has the added bonus of beautiful scenery, lakes, skiing in the winter and is home to some of Germanys most visited landmarks ‘Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castles’.
