The journey itself is your reward. If you organise your holiday according to this motto, you can sharpen your senses along the Romantic Road and embark on a tour of discovery from the River Main to the Alps.
From Würzburg in the north to Füssen in the south. Imperial towns, castles and abbeys are the traveller’s constant companions on the journey from the Prince-Bishop’s residence on the River Main to the royal castles in the foothills of the Alps. Architecture from many epochs has made the Romantic Road to Germany’s best-known tourist route. Since the launching of the Romantic Road in 1950, innumerable tourists have discovered a heritage preserved for the modern world. In towns and villages along the route, medieval houses, towers and walls, Baroque palaces, Renaissance buildings, castles, monasteries, churches and King Ludwig II’s fairy-tale castle of Neuschwanstein illustrate the wide-ranging term, ‘romanticism’. Besides the picturesque nooks and crannies, as well as the wonderful parks, mighty churches bear witness to the faith that, over the centuries, has given people the strength to create the wealth of architectural gems to be found along the Romantic Road.
