    I believe the Neuschwanstein Castle was the castle that Walt Disney based his castle on.

    Nice shots. Great shots. Live in Suburban Phila so there really ain't much in the way of decent buildings (another KFC! Great...just great...) but love some of the stuff found on every corner in Europe.

    Heard the same thing about the castle, about Walt Disney and all that. Looks very similar to the one in Florida.

    Adler, how do you get to Castle Neuschwanstein from Munich? Not planning on going anytime soon but figure it might come in handy some day in the future.

    War story about the Castle. Was at Oktoberfest last year and we're all pretty far into the suds. One of the women I was with said she wanted to get up early the next day and go see the castle. She wanted to know where it was so she could walk there. Was more than a bit shocked when we told her the thing was probably 60 km away.

    Walk to the Castle from Munich, ok, that's YOUR blonde momment for the day.

    It is just south of Munich. I think you would have to take an Autobahn to Fuessen, which is near the castle.

    I have been to the Castle many times. The picture I took above is when I was out flying one day and flew a couple of circles around it and took pictures.

    The alley of Marten Trotzig is the narrowest alley in Stockholm. The alley is at its most narrow part only 35.4 inch wide. (90 centimeters). The alley has got its name from the German salesman Marten Traubtzich. Marten moved to Sweden in the year 1581. He bought the houses along the alley that bear his name during the years 1597 to 1599.

    Marten was a tradesman in copper and soon became one of Stockholm’s richest inhabitants. He was assaulted and killed during a business trip in 1617.



    [​IMG]
    The alley of Marten Trotzig starts at the street Prastgatan.
    The alley is so narrow that it is easy to pass it without notice it.

    [​IMG]
    When the old city was established the sea line was at the lower level of Marten Trotzig alley.

    [​IMG]
    The alley joins the streets of Prastgatan and Vasterlangatan.
    The alley is one of the places were the difference in ground level in the old town is notable.

    [​IMG]
    The alley of Marten Trotzigs have 36 steps.
    These go from the street Vasterlanggatan to the street prastgatan.

    [​IMG]
    Vasterlangatan 81 the starting point of Martin Trotzigs alley.
    The alley was closed for the public during almost 100 years.
    It was blocked by a wooden fence at bouth ends.
    The valley was opened again in the year 1945.

    If you are walking about the old town a natural place to rest are Branda Tomten. The area of Branda Tomten is restful and offers shadow below the big tree in the center of the spot.
    Branda Tomten is at the corner of the streets Kindstugatan and Sjalagardsgatan.



    [​IMG]
    Original there was a house on the place were Branda Tomten is.
    The house was burnt down in the year 1728.
    The owner of the house did choose not to rebuild the house.

    [​IMG]
    In the map from the year 1760 the spot was named Branda Tomten.
    The place has since had this name.

    [​IMG]
    It is not only the big three that gives the area its leafy feeling.
    There are also a lot of plants growing on the front of the houses.

    [​IMG]
    There are a lot benches in the place to sit down and rest.

    [​IMG]
    The big chesnut three in the middle of Branda Tomten is big and gives shade to the whole area.

    Same as above... Old Town Stockholm Sweden - Gamla Stan
