We were driving from Fussen to Oberammergau, to Salzburg and just happened to see a brown informational sign on the side of the road telling us that something of interest was off in that direction. On a whim, we decided to go see what it...More

Like a few others, I too had rented a car for the sole purpose of being able to take side trips like this during our planned stops (In this case our drive from Fussen to Salzburg). With that said, I do believe that there is... More
