Romantic Strasse

Journey along the Romantic Strasse

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 the dramatic mountain scenery of the Alps.

From Würzburg, we travel through the Swabian crater landscape to reach quaint little towns such as Dinkelsbühl, Nördlingen and Donauworth, 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 and German Baroque, Renaissance and Medieval architecture.

Neuschwanstein, the world-famous fairytale castle of Bavarian King Ludwig II, is a dream in stone of bygone times.
