Czech Trip 2022 - Day 6

Romantic Road

Today is the day we cross back into Germany. The initial plan was to incorporate a visit to the Berchtesgaden and then Neuschwanstein Castle. After some Google time we dropped Berchtesgaden as the reviews on various sites advised that the park and ride was a time killer. We simply wouldn't have the time. Given the amount of roadworks everywhere we have been plus the PITA of TomTom and BMW Navigator hiccups, it made sense.

The ride from Lenzing should have been straightforward. Phil led Giles and I picked up the rear. My TomTom had its first wobbler before we made it to the A1! Our first stop was the A8 Aire by the Chiemsee. It's amazingly peaceful considering the A8 traffic is flashing past at unlimited speeds!!

We arrived at Neuschwanstein after several stops to check the map and satnavs. Checking on the Google Maps timeline it looks quite straight!

On the way in we could see the castle coming into view and stopped for a few pics.

We headed into the town and struggled to find any free parking. Ending up €3 lighter paying to park. We then found that all the tickets for that day had sold out within seconds of the ticket office opening. Bollocks.

We had lunch and took a few photos and then got on with the Romantic Road!

We had a rough route northwards from Füssen to our overnight stop in Friedburg near Augsburg. But it would need signposting on occasions to keep us on course.

The weather was good. The rain banished. We arrived at Gasthaus Kriesi in really good time. Parking was a bit odd and this is where backing into a space, I hit the kerb and lost the weight of the bike and it went down gently on the right side. No great damage but a scrape on the crash bar and the right Shad pannier. Bugger again.

After a while the owner asked if we wanted to park under cover and moved his car. If he had done that earlier I might not have dropped Vera.

Dinner and then Phil found some maps and leaflets on the Romantic Road and so we replanned the next day. Friedburg to Rothenburg ob der Tauber and then back to the A6....
