Day Twelve

Camping Pfahlhof to Camping Mullerwiese via Hohenzollern Castle

The view of Hohenzollern Castle as you approach is incredible. The castle stands like a fairytale castle, high above it's surroundings. You park up lower down the hill and there is a shuttle bus which takes you up to the entrance to the castle. It's an extra cost for the shuttle bus so we thought we would walk up the steps to the entrance. It certainly got the heart rate up but it only took about 15mins and once you're at the top you soon forget about the climb. Well worth saving a few euros. 

Hohenzollern Castle is breathtaking. We booked a castle tour so we had a bit of time to kill whilst we waited for the tour to start and we spent most of that time stood by the edge of the castle walls taking in the stunning scenery. The tour is well worth taking, it was really interesting and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, answering every question thrown at her by the inquisitive punters. 

After the tour it was lunch time so we were soon scoffing currywurst mit pommes frites with epic views. Delicious. 

Time to head through the Black Forest to our campsite for the night. Camping Mullerwiese is a beautiful and super quiet campsite right in the heart of the Black Forest. The sun came out and it was actually quite warm. It gave us chance to dry out the cali-topper somewhat and we finally used our camping chairs which we had lugged around the whole of Europe for nearly two weeks.
