Trip Log

Notes Actions
We started the day by backtracking into Rottenbuch to see the church, which the authors of "The Romantic Road" called a "Rococo Explosion". The campingplatz opened at 7:30, and we had to wait for that to pay on departure. The church opened at 8:00, so it worked out perfectly.

From Rottenbuch to Halblech it was extremely hilly... up and down and up and down and up and down. It was also extremely beautiful - the countryside itself, and the Alps showing more and more. From Halblech the rest of the way to Füssen was surprisingly (and mercifully) flat.

We did it. We cycled the Romantische Strasse!!
Füssen is extremely beautiful... and extremely busy and chaotic with tourists. I have mixed feelings of enjoying the beauty and being vexed by the crowds. I feel like we've spent the last two weeks backcountry camping and now we've suddenly emerged in Times Square. Yikes!

Even our Campingplatz is crazy busy. The Zeltplatz, which is normally just, you know... for ZELTS... has cars all over it, and tents all on top of one another. It's not going to be our favorite place to stay. I'm hoping the Rhine will be more normal again rather than this touristy anthill.
