Fuessen, Austria
Leaving Dulles airport at the start of our big adventure
At least we have good seats.
Upon arriving in Munich we met Peter, our guide, who drove us to Fuessen
and just over the border into Austria where our hotel was situated at the base of a medieval castle ruin - Burgenwelt Ehrenberg.
Our hotel has a medieval look because of the regular reenactments

Exploring the hotel's unique playground
After a trek up the 12% grade
we viewed and explored the ruins of Castle Ehrenberg
and the other forts in the distance

Exploring the town
Dinner at a medieval themed restaurant in Fuessen
A unique fountain
The rocks on the top rotate in constant motion
A name from the past. My first part time job was as a salesgirl at Woolworth's. They no longer exist in the USA
We walked through the town until dark
The next morning we planned to stop on this bridge for photos of the Alps
But the mist obscured the beautiful view we had seen yesterday. Note for the rest of trip - don't postpone photo-ops!
