The picturesque fairy tale castle of Neuschwanstein took our breath away. So did the crowds that were piled up to see this Gothic monument. We had reached the castle with enough time to spare, for our inside walking tour, that we decided to get out of the heat and head towards Marienbrucke or Marien Bridge, to take the ‘classic’ shot of the building from afar.
Standing in line for the viewing on the hilly slopes that led to the bridge that is suspended over a ravine, we spied the artist at work, creating this masterpiece that you see below.
We weren’t even looking for someone painting in the middle of what could probably be described as a non-touristy place in the middle of the jungle!
