Romantic Road – On & around

On the way from north to south, the landscape of Germany’s “Romantic Road” changes from river valleys, fertile agricultural land, forests and meadows to dramatic mountain scenery

From Wurzburg, you will travel through the Swabian crater landscape to reach quaint little towns such as Dinkelsbühl, Nördlingen and Donauwörth, with high gabled houses and cobbled streets. Marvel at the beauty of the Spessart Mountains, and delight in arriving in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, “Jewel of the Middle Ages”. A well-preserved medieval city above the Tauber River. Rothenburg is located on a plateau at the intersection of the Romantic and Castle Roads.

A trade route in the middle ages, the road winds through picturesque countryside, walled towns, and charming villages. It is home to Gothic cathedrals, baroque German, Renaissance, and Medieval architecture.

Neuschwanstein, the world-famous fairytale castle of Bavarian King Ludwig II, are dreams in stone of bygone times. Linderhof and Mittenwald at the foot of the Bavarian Alps will complete this tour.
