a journey back in time, a daytrip from Munich with a private guide
Our drive along the Romantic Road will lead us through countless little villages that date back to Medival Times and even longer. Our first stop is at Harburg, one of the best preserved castles in Southern Germany. Another highlight is Dinkelsbuhl, a colorful little town packed with cute half-timbered houses and a church that partly goes backt to the early 13th century.
Rothenburg is a unique treasure as the historic centre has remained unchanged for centuries. Discover during a stroll through the medieval alleys the charm of this former proud and independent Reichsstadt (imperial city). From the market square with the Gothic and Renaissance townhall to the Lutheran St. Jakobs Church, around the fortified wall with countless towers and bastions we will see neat little houses and cobble stone streets, all witnesses of times long gone by.
Start is in Munich. We will drive along the Romantic road to Rothenburg. Along the way we will have a quick picture stop at Harburg, a medieval fortress overlooking the picturesque Muritz-Valley. We continue on the Romantic Road, passing cute villages, to Dinkelsbuhl, a colorful little town that has kept its charme for more than five centuries. In Rothenburg we will do a walking tour to see the many historic sites and if desired can have lunch. Return to Munich via Autobahn.

Phew! What a busy two days we've had. Even when we flagged our wonderful guide Simone kept going. She maintained a professional and personable attitude throughout, looking after our sightseeing needs and getting us where we had to go (and back)! Simone was an excellent guide. We have used Tours By Locals a number of times around the world, Simone with her smile, friendly personality and knowledge leads the field! Just a really excellent person and guide. Thanks Simone, see you next trip.
