Step back in time with a visit to the picturesque countryside of the celebrated Romantic Road in Bavaria. Drive along panoramic byways to see fairytale castles, medieval towns with ancient fortifications and plenty of quaint shops. Pick up your rental car in either Frankfurt or Munich, and finish in Munich or Frankfurt.

Day 1 ~ Arrive Rothenburg via Würzburg: Pick up your rental car at a convenient location for your drive to Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
(Accommodation, Rothenburg ob der Tauber)
Suggested Excursion - Würzburg:
Würzburg is a university town surrounded by vineyards with a number of wine pubs for you to experience. The Residenz in Würzburg, for many centuries home of the bishops who ruled the town, is one of Germany’s most splendid Baroque palaces. Next drive to magnificent Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the crown jewel of the Romantic Road, a medieval town with fortifications and museums to explore and towers to climb. Rothenburg is a must.

Day 2 ~ Rothenburg: After breakfast, we suggest spending time exploring the city before taking an excursion on your own to several of the surrounding villages and towns. (Breakfast & accommodation, Rothenburg ob der Tauber)
Suggested Excursion - Dinkelsbühl & Tauberbischof-sheim:
Today you can visit the historic town of Tauberbischofsheim, an historic town near
Würzburg with one of the most complete medieval town centers in all of Germany.
Continue on a few miles to Dinkelsbühl, another medieval gem with its four
gateways and walls still intact, beautiful Renaissance halftimbered houses and
one of the most important churches of southern Germany, St. George Church.

Day 3 ~ Rothenburg to Füssen: Today you have a longer drive as you travel south from Rothenburg to Füssen along the Romantic Road.
(Breakfast, Rothenburg ob der Tauber; accommodation, Füssen)
Suggested Excursion - Nördlingen:
Stop in this quaint town surrounded by town walls with 11 watchtowers before continuing on to the “Golden Town” of Augsburg, with its Italian Renaissance Town Hall and imposing cathedral. After Augsburg consider a stop in Landsberg, once the center of the salt trade, to see its beautiful market square.

Day 4 ~ Füssen: After breakfast, you’re off for your day of leisurely travel.
(Breakfast & accommodation, Füssen)
Suggested Excursion ~ Schwangau & Neuschwanstein:
Today you will visit the southern-most section of the Romantic Road, highlighted by visits to the storybook castles of Bavaria’s King Ludwig II— Hohenschwangau and
Neuschwanstein. Füssen has its own castle as well, built in the 16th century by the bishops of Augsburg, who controlled the town.

Day 5 ~ Füssen to Munich: After breakfast, you’re off to drive to Munich. We
suggest stopping for a visit of the world famous Church in the Meadow in Steingaden. (Breakfast, Füssen; accommodation, Munich)
Suggested Excursion - the Church in the Meadow:
On your way to Munich, take a slight detour to see the Wieskirche (Church in the
Meadow) in Steingaden, a masterpiece of the Rococo-style built as a pilgrimage spot in the 18th century - one of Germany’s treasures.
