August 29th: Bavarian Alps to Stuttgart to Heidelberg

Too bad. It was raining and quite cold in the Alps today so we decided to head to Stuttgart and the Mercedes-Benz museum. We missed visiting two of the finest, most picturesque and romantic castles on the trip.

King Ludwig's Main Castle outside Fossum

 

His other castle nearby. Both were up on a mountain.

 

Then it was off to Stuttgart on the autobahn. After about an hour, it slowly stopped raining. After spinning around for awhile looking for the Mercedes museum, we finally found it.

We're here!

Two of the first cars in the world. Biz and Alex: maybe you can tell that these look like carriages like the ones pulled by horses over 100 years ago. They were just like it! The people who invented cars put motors on carriages.

 

More car stuff....
