Advent, 'Christkindl' and Christmas markets - "Ding dong merrily on high" - all along the Romantic Road
As the year draws to a close, the Romantic Road is decked in particularly festive garb:
All along the route between Würzburg and Füssen there are Advent, Christkindl and Christmas markets, which provide inviting destinations for club and group excursions and society outings. Big or small, for a short day trip, weekend visit or, indeed, for an entire month, you will find these markets authentic and atmospheric, offering cultural and culinary pleasures aplenty. Incidentally, there is one place in the heart of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, where it is Christmas 365 days a year!
For further infomation on all Romantic Road offers please see the flyer GROUP TRAVEL OFFERS!
