First thing this morning we went off to the Deutche Bahn office again to get our train tickets for tomorrow. Unfortunately, all of the Fahrrad spots on the trains were reserved already so we can’t travel tomorrow. So, the nice lady helped us book for the next day instead – thankfully that was available, otherwise our plans for riding the Rhine could be in jeopardy.

That means we have an extra day before we leave for Koln. Laura suggested that we do a scenic train ride, perhaps to somewhere in Tirol, or to Innsbruck. Brent and I were all over that, and when we looked into tickets, it turns out that the train to Innsbruck actually connects in Tirol, so we’ll essentially get to do both.
After taking care of the conundrum of what to do with our extra day here, we rode our bikes around Forggensee (the lake that we’re camped by). It was super scenic. Then, we went and rode the Tegelbergbahn cable car up the mountain past Neuschwanstein Castle to the top of a mountain where all the paragliders we’ve been seeing launch. Laura and I hung out while Brent did a short 30-minute hike (we were wearing clip shoes, so couldn’t do the walk with him).
