    The ruin of the castle lies at 1268 meters on the Falkenstein near Pfronten. And the nice thing is: you can pedal up a wonderfully steep road with the road bike. Alone that's worth it and arrived at the top there are plenty of extras. The view, for example, which is really great. By the way, you can look at how King Ludwig II of Bavaria once resided here, if you have a bit of imagination, because much of his former home is not left. Maybe it helps, if you know, that King Ludwig originally wanted a castle in the style of Neuschwanstein. Too bad that he never got to see the finished structure: Long before its completion drowned King Ludwig in Lake Starnberg.

    Interesting and, towards the end, a challenging climb. Great view from above, as the next mountains can only be seen at some distance. Even the looks of the excursionists compensate for the increase.
