Take a trip down the Romantic Road, a famous 220 mile route linking some of Bavaria's most exquisite architectural gems on a guided tour from Munich.

This perfectly situated castle with its surrounding village retains the feel of the middle ages. Be enchanted by its historic flair and delve deep into its history. After visiting the castle, and pausing for coffee, you will drive on through the wondrous scenery of the Nördlinger Ries – the giant depression left by an ancient meteor in the Swabian landscape. Travelling via Dinkelsbühl, with its towers and spires, you will reach Rothenburg, a perfectly restored mediaeval town. Take some free time here for extensive exploration. Wander through the beautiful streets and alleyways, which are full of the charm of past times. Your return to Munich will take you through the largest hops-growing region in the world, the Hallertau. On this tour, be amazed by the beautiful region of southern Germany.

I absolutely loved every second in this trip! The guide was incredible and was obviously experienced. The castle was wonderful! I genuinely felt like I was taken back in time thanks to the castle guides storytelling. On another note…WOW Rothenburg was just incredible! The whole energy of the town is indescribable. It’s beautiful and there is so much to do. I thought that 3 hrs would not be enough but I checked pretty much everything off of my to do list! I would LOVE to return to Rothenburg during Christmas time with my family. I highly recommend this tour!

Great trip to rottenburg and harburg castle ( optional extra euro 9 per pax). Rottenburg is a nice place to explore, we have about 3 hours in this medieval town We did not manage to go to take the overview of rottenburg from the town hall as it involves 220steps up!!

Wow. Rothenburg is an amazing town. Should not be missed out. This tour is nicely organised and we had enough time to move around.

Long ride on the way back but manageable. I am glad I took this tour. Thanks to our guide Immgard.

Very organized. Driver and guide are very kind and helpful.
