It seems to be the time of year when everyone is slightly frazzled trying to get through the rush of things to do before Christmas! Household Le Chic seems to be no exception! We are, however, very much looking forward to having our daughter, Mlle, back with us for the festive season. She’s flying in from London in a couple of weeks time to enjoy some Perth sunshine and catch up with family and friends. It was only 6 months ago that we were all sitting together in the beer garden of the Hotel Mueller in Hohenschwangau, Bavaria. It was an idyllic spot in which to enjoy ice creams and a lovely cup of tea after our trip up to Neuschwanstein and the Marienbruecke.
With the horse and carriage staging-post adjacent to us it was a good vantage point for horse and people watching.
The wonderful views up to Hohenschwangau Castle in one direction and Neuschwanstein in the other were the icing on the cake and we could have happily whiled away several hours if we hadn’t had to head off to catch the last direct train back to Munich.
Hotel Mueller gets good write ups on TripAdvisor from satisfied guests who have enjoyed its traditional Bavarian ambiance combined with modern comforts. Certainly we would consider staying there or back in the small town of Fuessen if we visit the area again. Not surprisingly Hohenschwangau was well geared up for visitors with a number of other hotels and eateries. It didn’t feel unpleasantly crowded but we were there in the quieter spring season before the summer crowds arrived. After tea, we had just enough time for a quick stroll back down the main street and a lingering last look at Neuschwanstein Castle before we headed off to Fuessen station via the 78 bus.
