Here there

First post

Just got my new 135i on Monday morning, and the next day I went to Neuschwanstein Castle

Here is some photos my brothers and I took

Enjoy

What a car and what an experience

Bye the way - the directions were perfect

Great map! I wish I had this info when I went!

Had the wife and in-laws with me, so as soon as I found a spot I stopped, as I don't think they were up for me driving around too much in the fields. This was from just after the fork in the road from southbound B17.

Farther from Neuschwanstein than your location:


That photo was taken from behind the car, parked next to this:


Open access to this little parking area, and no in-laws yelling about driving past a red circle with white center sign!

Boy, it looks like they had a hard time squeezing that license plate onto your car!

The little halo around the castle is cool!

This is a great thread, wish it had been around before my trip in May. As a second thought though, why not build a whole list of favorite photo ops? These pictures are about halfway down the length of Am Plansee where there is a broad gravel area with no trees.

I took a pic similar to that on the Am Plansee. Beautiful back drop

Your pictures and report were exceptional. As a matter of fact, I had printed the whole thing out to take on my ED in May and your desciption and photos were one of the reasons I made sure to hit Plansee, specifically for the photo ops (and drive of course). Unfortunently, I didn't run across any R8's though.

BTW, you were asking about the white and blue poles. I saw several and was wondering also, here's what I found: "It is known as a Maypole (in German it's Maibaum). Traditionally, these were used to honor a town's major families during the spring. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see them honoring the town's major industries (to the point where some towns use the maypole to sell advertising space). The Maypole is always topped with a small pine tree."

Perfect - you got lucky with the short grass and the flowers. The grass was about 2 feet tall when I was there, but they had just mowed a small patch of it so it didn't get in the way of my picture.

After hours

Once the horse carriages and bus service stop, you can drive right up to the castle. I got there a bit late after dinner, so all I got is a nice photo of my plate and the castle.

If folks are interested, you can look in my picassa album with GPS tag info of where the pictures were taken.

For a closer spot

If you stay at the Hotel Schwanstein you can drive right up to the castle after hours.

These are just from the hotel parking lot. Nice hotel, by the way (see ED link for brief description)

I am impressed with all of the interesting pictures here. What a photo spot. I am tempted to comment on the creativity of the people here! What a group.

For instance, I thought this was a great and unique angle. Needs a little fill in flash and then it would really look sharp – something like this:

OK, so I successfully used the Garmin file to put the official phot location in my Nuvi 670, and we drove right to the spot this morning. It was overcast, but we took pictures anyway. Here she is.



She is a 335i Sedan. Jet black with black leather. Sport package and heated seats. My first Bimmer, but definitely not my last.

We have a few days left on our trip, which we are bloggin here: ED Trip Blog

Tip to make the castle look bigger, stand waaaaaay back, zoom in with maximum zoom.

Great thread, thanks. My wife and I got a good laugh. The day we were there, it was raining, but we are already planning the 5er replacement in 2012. I've saved this link in my planning folder.

Our castle spot pic. The weather was dreary but we survived. Thanks to the people who gave the coordinates. Put them into the Garmin and viola, we were there.
