Neuschwanstein Castle (Cost 60)
  • Meaning "New Swan Stone Palace" is a
    19th-century Bavarian palace on a rugged hill
    near Hohenschwangau and Füssen in southwest
    Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by
    Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage
    to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse.
    Although public photography of the interior is
    not permitted, it is the most photographed
    building in Germany and is one of the country's
    most popular tourist destinations.King Ludwig
    II did not allow visitors to his castles, but
    since its opening in 1886, over 50 million people
    have visited the Neuschwanstein Castle. About 1.3
    million people visit annually, with up to 6,000
    per day in the summer. The palace has appeared
    in several movies, and was the inspiration for
    Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park.

  • Pilatus is a mountain near Lucerne, Switzerland.
    The top can be reached with the Pilatus Railway,
    the worlds steepest cogwheel railway operating

    panorama gondolas and aerial cableways from

Things to expect
  • Students will room in pairs or quads, depending
    upon the hotel. These rooms are gender specific
    (boys or girls only)
  • The food and culture is different. Students have
    to be prepared to go with the flow of the tour,
    which can be both hectic and changing.
  • This is a SCHOOL trip and thus the rules that
    govern students at Millwood also govern them
    while we are away (i.e. no drinking, no drugs, no
    smoking, etc). Consequences for breach of rules
    can include monetary fines on the trip,
    suspensions when returned to school or being sent
    home.
  • Chaperones will be Millwood High staff members

17
Fundraising
  • Depends upon the interest of the group.
  • Will be students and parents directed, with the
    support of staff and school.
