Official Bimmerfest Neuschwanstein Castle Photo spot.

172316 425
Many ED Bimmerfest members photograph their car in front of Neuschwanstein. Here are the directions to the photo spot - so you can spend your time touring the castles instead of boring your wife or significant other looking for the perfect photo spot.

Basically, driving down the main road, you will see some open farm fields off to the right. There is a "no traffic allowed" sign at the entrance to the street (Red circle with white center), but if you don't drive too far no one seems to mind. Park near the tree at the fork in the road (three hundred meters from the main road) and photograph your car with the castle in the background.

Late afternoon is probably the best time for a shot. A polarizer filter is a good idea to bring the colors out in your paint job. Try to a long lens to help magnify the castle, or less of a telephoto of you want to emphasize the car.

Here are directions from the parking lot to the photo spot:

1st BMW, ED & Spartanburg Re-Delivery

After 34 years, returned to Germany to pickup our Glacier Silver / Coral Red F31 M-Sport Touring on St. Patricks Day. Three cheers to Rolf for his excellent pick-up services and to our BMW delivery specialist, Wolfgang Foss who's featured in the BMW video. Drove 1,458km from Munich, AlpinStrasse to Fussen, onto Rothenburg, then Bacharach along the Rhine, south to Heidelberg and Hockenheim Racetrack, Ingolstadt for the Audi factory tour and finally, turn-in back in Munich. It was 70 degrees Friday when we turned it in...this morning...23F and light snow...Ugh. Now the wait begins until our Spartanburg re-delivery...hopefully in time for O'Fest in Colorado!

Looking at a map it appears we could stop off here on our way from Salzburg to Bregenz (Lake Konstantine)...would that in fact be the case?
It's not the quickest way to get between the two places, but you can do it. Some nice scenery along the way.
Found the spot.

Today we took the car out for a test drive.
Went first down to Fussen & the Neu Schwanstein Castle. (A Fester Must Do).
We took the mandatory photo with the castle in the background (Photo 1) and of the castle itself (Photo 2). Unfortunately, it was a bit cloudy, but thankfully dry.
For a full report (still in progress) of our ED, go HERE

Looks great Expilot! We just got confirmation of our Performance Center Redelivery date of June 2nd..Woo Hoo! Soon we'll be driving our F31 M-Sport once again!
Thanks :)

In regards to your June 2nd PC re-delivery date, when were you notified (how soon prior to your date) and how big a window of possible dates did they give you?? Also, when was your drop off date & where? (In other words, how long from drop-off to re-delivery?)
Trying to plan the flight back there, meeting friends there, and planning the drive back to the West Coast is a bummer, when you don't know when it will be.

Nothing like a good double post...
A Little Different

Due to scheduling and weather, we were unable to get to Neuschwanstein Castle with the new car--we had to settle for a tour two days before our appointment at the Welt.

Here are a few photos taken at the castle, just in keeping with the spirit....
