View from our hotel room
On Sunday we drove through Freiburg (FRY-burg), a busy college city, on our way to Staufen. Staufen is an adorable town. This town had a pedestrian only section as well and we strolled through. Aubrey was fascinated with all the dogs she saw while James and I enjoyed the view of castle ruins on a hill over looking the town.
Staufen Castle Ruins
After we left town we drove around and ended up at Burg Hohenzollern. This is an impressive structure that we could see from many miles away. It stands alone on top of a hill overlooking a valley. We toured this castle and no pictures were allowed of the inside. It was a short tour and we missed the english version so went along on the German tour with a little book describing all the rooms in english. This castle, just as with Neuschwanstein, is relatively new. It was rebuilt on top of castle ruins in the 1860's.
We made home in one piece minus an incident with Aubrey in the car. Lets just say, I think Aubrey is most definitely, for sure, one little girl who will need some Dramine in the future. Lesson learned to open a window and pack more than 1 set of extra clothing.
