Tours and guided visits - Up 365 stairs with the tower keeper

Things are never boring on the Romantic Road.

The many and varied guided tours and tempting distractions in towns and cities, churches, museums and other places of interest are there to make sure of that – whether you go by bus or on foot, by bike or even in groups on Segways. Costumed ‚tower keepers‘ conduct guided tours of the old town and up 119 stairs in one town; and, in another, the climb – all 365 stairs – up to the keeper‘s original living quarters will keep you nice and fit. For clubs, groups and associations, it is maybe ‚time‘ for a guided tour of the town‘s clocks, or you can follow a costumed night-watchman, Kaiser Augustus, Jakob Fugger, Bert Brecht or even the daughter of a hangman for your guided visit.
