Full description
Journey into the southwest of Bavaria to see the most iconic palace in Germany and explore one of the country's idyllic medieval towns. This full-day tour shows you the grand Neuschwanstein Castle, perched high on an alpine mountain, and the city of Rothenburg in the highlands above the Tauber.

Your group sets out from Frankfurt in the morning for a drive that takes you almost to the Austrian border, where the majestic 19th-century facade of Neuschwanstein Castle stands amid the Alps. Inside, the palace halls display the splendor of precious furniture, sumptuous appointments, and masterful craftsmanship.

During your time in the castle, learn the history of its origins and the ambitions of Ludwig II, the infamous Bavarian king. Don't miss the chance for a private stroll in the impressive scenery amid the spectacular surroundings. Continue your journey with a ride along the Romantic Road to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the best-preserved medieval town in Germany, where you can get a look even further back in time. Take a stroll through the picturesque old lanes above the Tauber Valley and marvel at the Church of St. Jakob, the half-timbered houses, the city gates, and the mighty Renaissance town hall before you depart for the return trip to Frankfurt.

Excellent tour

I really loved the tour. The driver Zeljko was very nice and carrying for our needs. There were 3 of us + him in the newest Mercedes s-class. It was a full day tour, we saw everything as it is stated. For the lunch you get 2 "triangle" sandwiches, so I recommend you to bring some extra food (but if you want to buy it on the way, I am sure you will have time:).
