Our view of the castle as we walked up to the ticket center in Hohenschwangau.
View from Marienbrücke, or Mary's Bridge.
And the one euro we paid for the shuttle ride back down the hill was so worth it!

The Glyptothek (Sculpture Gallery)
Staatliche Antikensammlungen (State Collections of Antiquities)
Königsplatz was a key part of King Ludwig I's dream to turn Munich into a German Athens. The square was modeled on the Acropolis in Athens and the three main structures represent the orders of Classical Greek architectural style, Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. Part of a planned development for the expanding city, Königsplatz was to be the center of visual and performing arts in Munich.

Monopteros, a greek style temple atop a hill on the southern end of the large park.
Skyline of old town Munich from Monopteros.
Japanese Tea House on Schwabinger Bach
Waterfall where Schwabinger Bach and Eisbach (ice stream) meet.
At 910 acres, the English Garden in Munich is larger than Central Park in New York City (843 acres). Walking paths, various gardens, including beer gardens, all ready to be experienced. We explored maybe a third of the park, on the southern end. One thing we missed was the Eisbachwelle, near Haus der Kunst. Something to add to the list for the next visit.
