My father lives in a tiny town near Stuttgart and has a lovely little house there. My sister had arrived earlier in the day--by the time I got there, it was already dark and I was exhausted! We got up early the next morning to meet my dad's neighbors and explore nearby towns.
Our first stop was the town of Tübingen, located in the southwest of Germany. It was incredibly beautiful and picturesque--as you can see from the following photographs!
The church had beautifully carved tombs with Crusaders' graves.
The castle, Hohentübingen, was built prior to 1078 and has an amazing view of the town below.

We stayed the night near Füssen, which is the location of Schloss Neuschwanstein (also known as Sleeping Beauty's castle).

We explored the town and the area around the castle, then retired to our amazing AirBnB for the night. We decided to continue hiking the next day in Austria!
